Minimalism is the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of everything that distracts us from it.
It requires a conscience choice and consistent inspiration.
The minimalist lifestyle is counter-cultural and begins with the decision to pursue it. But the world we live in is not friendly to the pursuit of minimalism.
Its cultural tendencies and never-relenting advertising campaigns constantly tell us to acquire more, better, faster, newer, and trendier. The journey towards minimalism becomes a road that requires daily inspiration—a consistent re-centering of focus on the things that are the most important.
