A minimalist life means living debt-free so you can do what you want when you want to. It means mobility- the freedom to pick up and go with ease because you don't have a lot stuff to pack or unload. A minimalist life means the freedom to define and enjoy the experiences and relationships that matter to you. Does that kind of life appeal to you? Works for me.

Minimalism My Way
Living well with less
Unexpected vacation, yoga and midlife wanderings


  1. I didn't choose minimalism and minimalist isn't exactly the right term. Disability limited income even with my husband put the brakes on what I could freely do. Sedona was an unexpected "vacation" and definitely a midlife wandering. Here's to good health and living with less (satisfied) for both of us.

    1. My guy feels the same way, Maggie. His perspective is more Zen than minimalism. We're not hung up terms so we're good. Change in our lives, some voluntary and others unexpected landed us where we are and we're happy.
