After literally years of pursuing “minimalism” (I started in 2011), I think I’ve finally figured out what it truly means.
The typical minimalism newbie tends to fall into the trap of nothingness. It’s no surprise either; the most popular examples of minimalism certainly emphasize the power of less. Specifially, less physical stuff. That’s how we got the Tiny House Movement, the digital nomads, the 4-Hour Work Week, the Capsule Wardrobe. There are people who believe that the epitome of minimalism is simply owning less stuff.
But that’s just one piece of the puzzle.
