I am the type of person that is always super busy and on the go. Currently, my schedule is completely booked until the first of January. My Lilly Pulitzer agenda goes with me basically everywhere and sometimes I don’t understand how I can be so busy. I’ve noticed that I can handle a lot more when I only have important things on my plate. All of the plans I make are fun and essential. Not saying that I don’t occasionally get overwhelmed, but it is more of a rarity now. By being a minimalist, I’ve noticed that it is a lot easier to be more go with the flow than when there are so many things that need to get done.
This week is one of my busiest yet and it was nice to sit back yesterday and realize that I was just having fun. For me, a simple life is the way to happiness. Happiness is what gives minimalism purpose. If it didn’t make people happy, then people would be holding onto everything. There is a freedom to having only what you need. My schedule is nowhere near simple, but it gives my life structure and that is vital to my well-being.
