Less = More
I never used to think about any big meaning or purpose of material things in my life. And then I opened myself to the idea of minimalism. And for me everything turned out to be very simple: if the possession of a given thing re-echos in my soul, then this thing has a meaning and a purpose for me in my life.
And if not, then I can - and actually have to - say goodbye to this thing. For each person the list and amount of these things can be absolutely different. And all options, with no exception, will be right.
Only this way we can save place for what is actually important. To free this space for something new in our life. I will say even more: by these means we can understand what is truly important for us. To comprehend what things you are absolutely not sorry to spend energy, time or money on. And this discovery is indeed invaluable.
I also understood an interesting pattern about myself. When you start considering whether a given thing brings happiness to your life or not, you can never stop.
At first you need to try very hard to understand and comprehend this moment with each thing, then this starts to happen easier and more intuitively. Currently, for me this consideration happens almost automatically.
