With a new year comes new goals and ambitions. For some this means going to the gym or starting a diet... or in the case of my wife a decision to go vegan. For me this new year starts a different journey.
For me this new year begins a journey towards simplicity and minimalism. The choice comes from wanting to be intentional in the choices I make. I'm tired of the consumerism and the desire for more and more stuff. This stuff doesn't bring joy and instead it brings clutter and frustration. With the increased advertisements shown to us everyday I have decided to do the opposite. I will be content with what I have and buy what I need.
I'm still going to own things, I'll still sleep in a bed, and I'm still going to buy new things. The difference is that I am going to be intentional with what I own and purchase. I am going to make habits that free up time and make life easier. I am going to have a stronger focus on what truly matters in life.
