Have you heard of The Minimalists?
Someone sent me the link to the website recently and it’s so interesting, especially in light of Garance’s recent posts about simplifying her life. It was started by two guys, Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus , as they approached 30 and realized none of the superfluous stuff was making them happy. Not the cars, houses or salaries.
So, they left their jobs and started the site (brave, right?) and started a journey to minimalism. But what I think is the most poetic aspect of their philosophy is their approach – they focus on having more. With less stuff, they create for themselves more time, more growth, more freedom.
It’s a cool approach to life, don’t you think? Do you ever dream of a minimalist life?
