idea: choice minimalism

*A quick comment on the “pick and choose” nature of minimalism.

My favorite trait of minimalism and an intentional lifestyle is just that-

It’s intentional!

Minimalism is not a one-size-fits-all kind of lifestyle or a cookie-cutter fit treatment to living. You take what most deeply benefits you in your walk. (***Remembering theminimalists charge to “love people and use things”***)

A capsule wardrobe was the first reform that I latched on to and found extreme benefit in, until later when I followed a calling forward into digital minimalism and essentialism.

I have a lot of books. Even maintaining a limited size, I have built up a modest library after a year of collecting and reading (***I plan to make 2020 Q1 a quarter of rereading to stem the spending and consumption of new learning material***). Some minimalists choose tablets or eBooks to minimize their physical possessions. This is an area of my life that I have chosen purposefully. The underlying need behind minimalism is a need to question motivations behind consumption.

So, choose your own adventure in exploring different avenues to minimalism and truly make it your own.
