Living Minimalist 1
Here we are! WOT are we going to discuss here? Minimalist Living. I’m going to share with you some of my Living Minimalist practices that I do at home in subsequent posts.
But first, I want to share with you these Minimalists (people) who had profound influence with changing my perspective of how I was living my own life. We all have tragic moments in our personal lives and sometimes we just have to declutter, shed and latch on to a refreshing, jubilant, rediscovery of ourself!
It really begins with just you. At first anyway. On your own terms.
My introduction into the realm of Minimalist Living began from my reading a virtually cheap ebook (at the time) on Amazon.com by Francine Jay, called, Miss Minimalist: Inspiration to downsize, declutter and simplify.
This ebook literally changed my life! I wish I could say I knew Francine but I don’t, but her words changed my life in a tangible way.
Then about the same time, two guys named Joshua Fields Milburn and Ryan Nicodemus, who I dub the Minimalist evangelists emerged and really lit my fire! Their personal stories are deeply felt. I don’t know these guys either, but I know their “stories” so well.
Third, is Leo Babauta’s extraordinary blog where talks about his struggles and revelation. He’s not single anymore. He’s married with children. And his wife isn’t a minimalist in the vein he is in so his minimalist life is one of compromise. Real life. How do the Babauta’s balance this?
Note: Since this blog’s entry, Leo’s life attention has become very family driven, and according to his update, he isn’t blogging fulltime.
