Welcome to my Make Room for What Matters Minimalism Series. In this series we will talk all about practical minimalism and how to really clear the clutter to make room for what matters most in your life! We explore how minimalism is an extension of intentional living and a tool under the umbrella of intentional living. Minimalism has a lot to do with the elimination of stuff to clear space and gain clarity and as Joshua Becker puts it so nicely, “Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from it.” Intentional living is any lifestyle based on an individual or group’s conscious attempts to live according to their values and beliefs. The key word is ANY. What may be of value to one person based on the season of life they are in, their age, their culture, their beliefs is all relative.
Minimalism is a lifestyle. It is not something that is tangible. It is a way to live that allows the focus more on relationships, time, impact, generosity, and things that matter to us and less on what other people are doing or what is the next best trend. The most obvious way to talk about minimalism is to talk about it in terms of stuff, but it is so much more than that to me. What is it NOT to you? What is your overall impression of minimalism.
In this 10 part video series you will be able to get tips and perspective on the areas minimalism and intentional living. Check it out and let us know your thoughts!
