I use Instagram everyday. To me it’s not just a photo diary or a place to showcase my pictures. I started out following people who took photos that I liked, but now most of the ones I follow are people who live inspiring lives, the kind of lives I am secretly wishing for.
The other day I asked a person about how to make the important things in life get the attention and space it deserves, to downsize and not have so much meaningless STUFF everywhere at home. From another one of this person’s followers I got the link to the blog called The Minimalists. This is exactly what I mean about downsizing! I am not interested in having all these things, and I wish nothing more than to teach my kids that things are not the important stuff in life.
It is hard to get others to understand what I mean, being in a society where possessions are the thing that defines who you are. I have not yet started to get rid of my stuff, but I am making plans to do so. I am not happier owning, I am happy when I am creating, when I am making memories, and I will try very hard on focusing on those things in the future.
If you are interested in understanding what I mean, please check out the website. I am sure I will be referring to it a lot!
