A lot has been written about simplicity, decluttering, minimalism, essentialism, and related topics. I'm totally sold on this way of life, after seeing the benefits firsthand -- so much so that I hope my observations and experiences (as well as my struggles and questions) will inspire others to look into these topics as well. Hence, this blog!
In researching wills a few years ago, I read that some people leave behind letters to their children that express their own values, hopes, and life lessons learned. I never was one to sit down and write in a journal, but I feel like this topic would be a good place to start. So, if nothing else, this blog is the beginning of the letter to my young children, explaining why we live the way we do, what we value, and how to take a stand against an illogical status quo.
Those are the "whys". Away we go!
