Earlier this month I found out about minimalism. Minimalism is a way of life. A person breathes it, lives it and teaches others about it. A minimalist only has items that serve a purpose. A minimalist enjoys life without the constant restraint of capitalism. The needing of wanting things, things that are used to fill voids in a life that is not being lived to its full potential. I am currently on my path to becoming a minimalist. Every week I am decluttering my space in more ways than one. I stopped using my FaceBook and Twitter, the places where I felt the most negative energy. I started going through my bedroom, donating items that I haven’t even looked at in months; clothes, shoes, jewelry. I started to think about what I really wanted for my life; memories, happiness. Things that stuff and social media could never give me. I am becoming a minimalist.
