"Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you." -Lao Tzu
We began living minimally(ish) about 4 years ago and it has given us so much more than any thing we could have ever gotten rid of. More than ever I believe that there is no thing that can bring us happiness. Contentment is a choice. Contentment is having your most basic of needs met.
Found this blog this morning, Becoming Minimalist, it talks about living minimally in a very clear and beautiful way. Check it out and see what you think.
