Minimalist End Goal! I finally got it!
So I finally figured it out, and I wasn’t even trying. All this time in the past year or so since I embraced a minimalist approach for my life, I never really had an end goal. It was more about the journey.
The journey is plenty rewarding, and challenging, leading to a lot of self reflection, review of priorities,and appreciation for the joy of less, a simpler life.
All this time, I never had an end goal. I had never thought of making an end goal as part of my path to minimalism. But life has an interesting way of giving clarity to the purpose behind a way of life. Sometimes it just comes to you.
After thinking ahead, where I want to be, to, and taking into consideration pending life changes, I developed my end goal to be able to pack up everything I need and want in two hours, put it in my car and move. Think about it.
Pack everything I want and need in two hours, and be able to go anywhere in my car.
Please note, my car is a Honda Accord.
I love this goal. It gives me so much freedom, puts a clear definition of what to keep and get rid of, and is a challenge I’m eager to accept.
Now, this doesn’t mean I’m getting rid of all my furniture, backyard grill, books, dishes, washer/dryer, cookware, and other big items just because they won’t fit in my car. Are you crazy? I’m just not going to use them for a while.
Nah, the underlying reason it I’m going to be vagabonding it for a while, possibly housesitting, maybe renting a small place in a different town, and just being a bit of a nomad. My house will be rented out, partially furnished, while I play adventurer for the next year or so. Who knows where I’ll end up, but I’ll be with the barest of possessions.
I can’t wait…
Would you do something like this? What are your thoughts?
