my minimalist journey

finding minimalism

i found this page one day and it fascinated me.

it provoked a thread of thought in the back of my mind, but several months passed before i came across minimalism again.

at first minimalism seemed like an interesting idea, a lifestyle some people have that i can observe from afar. i thought of all the reasons why i could never be a Minimalist.

becoming minimalist

but i realized that there is no such thing as a Minimalist. there is no specific definition.

for me minimalism is about eliminating clutter from my life, giving me space to focus on what i love.

it doesn’t mean that i have to let go things that i treasure. it does give me reason to let go of things that i don’t treasure that i hold onto nevertheless.

being minimalist

it’s also practical. i am living abroad for university, and carrying things around is uncomfortable.

minimalism gives me room to breathe.

and it’s addictive. once i started to pare down my possessions, i realized how freeing it is. it is the opposite of retail therapy but so much more rewarding.

it’s not just about physical things. i’ve pared down my digital subscriptions, scheduled activities, computer files…i’ve even stopped multitasking.

minimalist me

minimalism makes me very excited and i am eager to share my experiences.

i am a student living abroad, and i travel frequently.

i love fashion, and i have learned that i don’t have to choose between fashion and minimalism.

i also love art, drama, and food. spending less on things means more is left over for experiences.
