Letting Go: My Path To Minimalism

Letting go does not just apply to people; it has included decluttering my whole environment to eliminate negativity and create more space for joy. For example, do I need a new computer, or do I just want the latest and greatest model? I run everything through this assessment, from buying a home to cars, pets, and even my clothes, and I make sure that need rules the day.


It sounds simple, but in practice, it involves some trade-offs, self-discipline, and disregard for status considerations. I rent a 700-square-foot apartment with only the bare minimum of furniture because I need a place to live, but I also love to travel and detest home maintenance.


While there are advantages to home ownership, I decided that some things are more important than money. As Plato asserted, “the greatest wealth is to live content with little.”


So, when you see a big guy driving around Malibu in an old BMW wearing swim trunks and beat-up old sunglasses with a big smile on his face, there is a good chance that it is me.
