Today I am going to share with you my selection of minimalist quotes.
I used to live a life filled with unnecessary excesses. Filled to the brim with ornamental stuff, knickknack , bric-a-brac and whatnot.
Now I am living a minimalist lifestyle. A simple uncluttered life without excesses, except the essentials.
Yes, it is a sparse and soothingly simple life, devoid of physical clutter and mental mess.
These days I have more time and space to savor my life; to indulge in simple pleasures.
In other words, less is more. Debt-free and free from stress of buying and hoarding material things.
I am embracing voluntary simplicity. I choose to live the good life on less, so I can enjoy more.
Anyway, check out these list of quotes about minimalism and simplicity:
