I just had a thought.. maybe everyone already knows this but it was a light bulb moment for me. Maybe minimalism is about living in the present! Most (me) normally live either the past (old journals, lots of momentos of past events/ppl) or the future (those clothes that will fit some day, the book that you will get around to read some day, the jewelery never worn but you will.. some day). Maybe minimalism is about embracing the now. I love xyz now and am using it now. We, as a family, play games a lot so we will keep the ones we use NOW. This feels like a spiritual revolution to me. I want to be present NOW!! This realization is a total game-changer.
