There are so many inspiring bloggers out there writing about their experience living a simpler and fuller life. So many are writing about minimalism, it’s even being called ‘trendy’, with some people subscribing to it like dogma, but for me it doesn’t strictly define my lifestyle. In fact, it is something I rarely talk about in my personal life and if you knew me, you wouldn’t ever label me a minimalist. My life is pretty ordinary, I still have a lot of junk in my apartment and still buy new things that I don’t need. For me, minimalism is a pursuit, a process, and a guiding light. And it’s about finding a balance that is still practical and realistic. Since embracing minimalism, I find myself worrying about obtaining objects less, only investing in things I love, and feeling satisfied with what I already have.
Here are some inspiring reads by 2 minimalist boys from around the blogosphere:
becoming minimalist – He is able to articulate what’s so inspiring about minimalism beautifully and recommends some good reads every week on this recurring post.
zen habits – Also very beautifully written. He writes about the “anti-bucket list”, on being more thoughtful about our life goals and feeling satisfied in doing less.
