My journey to minimalism

On July 3rd as I scrolled through my Facebook feed, I came across a Buzzfeed video about someone who lived like a minimalist for a week. Maybe it sounds crazy, but as soon as the video ended, I was immediately hooked. I did some more research and found The Minimalists (Joshua Fields Millburn & Ryan Nicodemus). As I read through their blog posts I found myself getting more and more excited and inspired. 
I did some research and made a list of “Reasons Why I Want To Go Minimalist”:

  • I want to spend less time in my room/ house
  • I want to spend more time living rather than watching other people live
  • I want to see clear tops of dressers and tables
  • I have too many distractions
  • I’m often overwhelmed
  • I want to live simply- everything’s too complex right now

Ending note:


1) I’m assuming it will be easier than it probably will

2) I am optimistic but I do think I will have some setbacks and miss my “old lifestyle”

I am gonna have to figure out my own definition of minimalism and how to not just “try it out”, but really start to live it…
