I just started reading the Minimalist’s new book called, “Everything that Remains“. Of course I purchased the Kindle addition as you know I don’t like to collect hard copies of books anymore. I am just about 35% into reading it and the current rate of interest should finish it up very soon.
I have noticed a significant change in the quality of writing, not that it was bad in the past, but in their new book it seems to be more picturesque as words give way to pictures created by those same words.
Reading “Everything that Remains” is cause for me to start reflecting on my own journey and where I was just a few short years ago to where I am today.
I have ridded myself of the things that brought stress into my life like debt and the desire to buy something just to own it. I have learned that there are just a few things in my life that contribute to my joy and those things I already possess. I have relocated to an area where just simply living life each day is less stressful and a place where I am surrounded by the beauty of Nature. I learned to wake up each morning to look forward to the joy I find in the world around me rather than thinking about the troubles the day can bring.
Sometimes just reading a book can reignite a flame inside that I sometimes forget about. My thanks go out to the author Joshua Fields Millburn and his best friend Ryan Nicodemus for contributing for years now to helping me to discover a way of life that is like no other. A world of Minimalism.
I walked the treadmill just 20 minutes this morning but feel positive just for the simple feeling that I did something towards getting back on track. It doesn’t take much to get involved in taking baby steps and the alternative is doing nothing at all. This simple walk with be habit soon and my body will slowly allow me to increase both time and intensity.
