How many of you have precious objects? A wedding ring, a porcelain vase, a present your partner gave you on a special occasion…? Things that have both a sentimental and a financial value?

Some of them bring you joy, I’m sure.

But some of them bring you worries too…

That’s my case.

What if that crystal vase broke while the kids are playing? Where is the ring Hubby bought me? And what about that pearl necklace I got from my great aunt? Are they in a safe place?

I have to confess that I hate these questions and the mini-heart attack I get each time they arise.

So far, the only thing I’ve done to deal with my concerns is to stop buying valuable things.

But I feel it’s not enough. I want to understand what objects represent and how to detach emotionally from them.

Hence my interest in the minimalist movement.

Since I’ve started this journey, I’ve been educating myself a lot on the topic.

And I got to learn that minimalism is not about things only.

It’s about learning to manage relationships, stress, work, Internet… in order to keep only the Essential in our lives and save one of our most precious assets: time.

In other words, it’s about making more space to what’s meaningful.

I’ve been reading, watching and listening a lot on the but now, I want to dig deeper.

I need to interact.

So yesterday, as my act of self-care, I have emailed a new website affiliated to theminimalists.com. It is called minimalism.life.

They are currently looking for contributors.

I want to engage in a conversation with them, learn more and see how I can contribute to this movement that is meaningful to me.

I’ll keep you posted, of course.

But in the meantime, tell me my friends, is there anything in your life you want to make more room for?

 

WHY IS IT SELF-CARE?

“There is no wealth like knowledge,
and no poverty like ignorance.”

MORE ABOUT THIS

You’d be surprised by how people love to share their knowledge with others.

With Internet, knowledge is accessible to all and anyone could potentially be reached.

Sometimes, we’re intimidated or too shy to ask but if you do, you will get a chance to interact on topics that are meaningful to you.

Find people who have the same interests as you do and email them or post comments on their sites, blogs…

There is a chance that you get no answer. But it doesn’t matter because in both cases, you win.

If they don’t respond, you will have no regrets: you tried.

If they respond, you will have an opportunity to interact with people you want to know more.
