A Minimalist’s Train of Thought

A Minimalist’s Train of Thought

I‘ve considered myself a minimalist for a couple years now and have been working towards a lifestyle that is based less on consumption and more about sustainability and contribution.  I came across this website the other day and the author has a nice little creed that sums up what a minimalist thinks like:

A Minimalist’s Train of Thought

Less money spent means more money saved

More money saved means the longer you can live in financial peace and security

Financial peace and security comes from owning less

Less stuff owned means less to carry around, move or have to travel with

Less responsibility for your stuff also means less maintenance and more time

The more time you have, the more relaxed you will feel

The more relaxed you are, the less you will care about stuff

If you care less about stuff, it means you’ll care less about image

If you care less about image, you will care more about experiences and memories

If you care more about experiences and memories, you will be happier with less

If you are happier with less, you’ll never want or need for more

The less you want or need for more, the more you will feel free
