And Why You Will Too
I am passionate about minimalist living. Living simply.
It just seems so easy. It seems natural.
I am not one of the millions who hates their job but has to suck it up and force themselves to go to work to pay the bills.
That does not seem natural to me. It certainly does not seem healthy or productive.
Go to a job you don’t really care for, where you are not appreciated. Then go home and not have any motivation or energy left to do anything else.
So what is the Number 1 reason I love minimalist living?
Freedom to choose what I want to do each and every day.
I don’t have any debt. I do have monthly bills that have to be paid. But there is no car payment, no “til death”(mortgage) payment, and no credit card debt.
So I have the freedom to choose when and how much I work.
I have a microbusiness that provides more than enough to pay my bills and have a bit left over.
During the school year I substitute teach. Here in Nova Scotia that job pays very well. And I have the freedom to choose the days I want to go to a school.
Because I am participating in my own 100 Thing Challenge I don’t have any clutter or useless belongings.
This also gives me the freedom to enjoy my space without having a bunch of stuff around.
I have the freedom to be be passionate about ideas that I have and the topics that interest me.
I have the freedom to move if I want or travel more.
I have the freedom to sit still and enjoy each moment. Quiet solitude. Not go, go, go. Rush, rush, rush. Have, have, have.
I have freedom.
The number one reason to live a minimalist lifestyle is just to have the freedom to be able to live the life you want to have.
