I’ve been thinking a lot about minimalism lately. It honestly all came about during a ridiculous laundry session where I realized that every, single, person in this house has way too many clothes and simultaneously never has anything to wear. That and the fact that my room, my kids room, my garage, my basement, my office corner, my mind, my everything is just so cluttered and full of meaningless stuff I wanted to scream. And then, I thought about minimalism.
What would it really take to live a minimalistic lifestyle? What does that look like for me and my family? My work? My closet? My life. I feel the need to just clear some space. To have some space to be. To declutter, to gain clarity, to get balance. And I think that this constant overflow of stuff, all day, everywhere isn’t helping get any of those things at all.
Now, I don’t want to be one of those like, extreme minimalists. But I do feel this tug at just getting rid of the extra stuff. So I can make room for the good stuff. The things that make this whole life thing love.
