The rich man isn’t the one who has the most, but rather the one who needs the least.

i think it will help you find the freedom to pursue a rational minimalism that works for you.
OOOH I like that one…That one goes on the fridge for sure! .I am thinking of becoming a minimalist but I don’t think I can give up my I Phone…..or my Fender Strat….Can I keep SOME of my cool stuff or do I have to get rid of it all…Thoughts?
You can keep everything…

I have enough. My husband feels the opposite.

That’s been posted on a sticky note in my office for years. Good reminder!

AKA: The rich man is not the one who has what he wants, but rather the one who wants what he has…
Personally, the whole concept of minimalism seems to be a great way of reconnecting with myself and my needs, and forgetting about unnecessary (or even unwanted) material luxury. Of course “unnecessary” is arbitrary, but at least it helps redefining.
It starts to decomplicate my life, even within a couple of weeks.
I want things I don’t have and I have things I don’t want. Which one am I? The realistic one.
Minimalism doesn’t necessarily enhance.

Great quote! Food for thought, it reminds us that we live in a world where most people have a need for more. We should all take on the mindset of the rich man!
