Zero in: Minimalist is a work in progress

April 30, 2017

There is no destination to arrive at in this journey of Minimalism. No one will tell you the magic formula for how to be a minimalist.

Being a Minimalist you always try to be a better version of yourself, always De-cluttering the meaningless and joyless things, always simplifying relationships, always trying to put needs over wants, always trying to spare some time for the passions.

 

 

Start with shifting your attention towards meaningful things in Life. You need to choose first where do you want to spend your limited time.

Do not just say- I wish I had more time but rather use that time for what you want that extra time. You would never find that road to happiness unless you search for it and start walking in that direction.

Though you will gain criticism in the beginning but if you are sure about it, others will fall in line one day.

According to noted minimalists Joshua Fields Millburn and Ryan Nicodemus, “Minimalism is a tool to rid yourself of life’s excess in favor of focusing on what’s important—so you can find happiness, fulfillment, and freedom.”

Of course, it not easy but then easy things does not ensure happiness.

 

When I decided to follow Minimalism , I was really unsure of what to do and where and how to start.

But then I started with my expectations from Minimalism, writing down what I want out of this journey. Minimalism works differently for each one of us but with the same result- FREEDOM.

So, you became a minimalist the moment you started working on “how to be a minimalist”. Deciding to become a minimalist is not only about having a certain number of possessions, or tiny home, or traveling the world. The figures over the internet might overwhelm you at the start but do not let them distract you or steal your peace of mind or make you feel less.

You are still a Minimalist, even if you own 500 things but all those must serve your Life meaningfully.

At the end, I would say

A Minimalist is a work in progress.


I will be soon coming up with an e-book titled “A-Z of Minimalism: A short guide to Freedom”

    How rightly said – being minimalist saves from tremendous pressure from our own expectations. Being minimalist help us focus on one thing at hand, I would definitely try this “minimalistic” approach ????

      Yes, expectations is the root of almost every problem. Expectations from self and from others. Focusing on one thing at hand is practically beneficial. Thanks for commenting. Do try to explore Minimalism.
