In 2010 I had a nice boyfriend, a nice corporate job and a nice apartment in Dallas, Texas. Then a friend was diagnosed with a brain tumor and given two years to live. This changed my whole outlook on life. I realized that it could be now or never to live life on my terms.

In the span of a few months, I left my lover, quit my job and gave away almost all of my possessions in order to attend graduate school for two years in Europe. At the age of 37, I was going to study something completely new, not for career enhancement but simply out of curiosity.

In those two years, I lived in four countries, with nothing but the contents of two suitcases. After graduating, I thought I would be happy to "re-clutter" a space I could call my own, but instead I found myself almost physically repelled by things which do not serve an essential purpose. And I remain nomadic. Enlightenment, as I know it now, can refer to both weightlessness and wisdom.

Beyond the dispensation of material objects, I have simplified my life by serving what I consider to be an essential purpose, myself. Unable to find a traditional job upon my return to the U.S., I began volunteering at a dementia daycare center in San Francisco. Contributing compassion is more important to me than any single thing, and so to accommodate my volunteer schedule I became a freelance writer. It has been twenty years since I received my undergraduate degree in journalism, but only now do I have stories worth sharing.

My minimalist transformation is one of them. I can't wait to tell you about it – and show you how you can do it, too!

Thank you Kelly, for showing how to start with minimalism and that it doesn't end with materially things but go further. I already started.

HASH(0xa0e2b300) von 5 Sternen Agree with the premise but not a good book 4. Mai 2014
Von BondGuy - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
This book is neither a guide "for decluttering your life" nor "living a simple lifestyle." Too much of an attempt to tug at the reader's heartstrings with sad stories and very, very little about how to go about making meaningful change in your life or even about how she made meaningful changes in hers. I was very disappointed. The book is short and very inexpensive but it is $2.99 and 90 minutes of my life invested with very little learned.

HASH(0xa0e2bd08) von 5 Sternen Not as good as reviews suggest 7. April 2015

I did not think this was a good book. I couldn't even finish it. I got through the first four chapters before I decided to stop reading, which I rarely do. The first three chapters begin with a somewhat interesting story but it just rubbed me as being pretentious. A lot of parts about how disingenuous everyone else's lifestyle is and how all her friends secretly are envious of her because how bold she is with traveling and couch surfing. While this rubbed me the wrong way, I soldiered on. In chapter 4 there are recipes. There is a preface that nourishment is vital to a minimalist lifestyle. OK, I agree with that. The the recipes that follow are for chocolate chip cookies and mac not cheese. Really? That's nourishment? At that point I had to stop reading.

HASH(0xa0e2b78c) von 5 Sternen Minimalism Taken Too Far? 10. Januar 2015
Von Vecinka - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
It was Albert Einstein that said, "Everything Should Be Made as Simple as Possible, But Not Simpler" and as I read this book, I couldn't help but think that the author has made her life even more simple than she should have. That's not to criticize the book (I'll get to that in a moment and I didn't take away any stars for this observation), but if the entire population of the planet were to adapt a lifestyle as the author has -- basically jumping from couch to couch and depending on the good graces of her friends to meet basic needs -- pretty soon there wouldn't be any couches left to jump to.

Yes, get rid of what you don't need. I'm starting to learn that it does tie you down. And don't get stuck in a soul-sucking job that you hate; life truly is far too short for that. But we still need to create value that can be of benefit to others and need to be able to take care of our own basic needs, even if that means living in a camper on the back of a pickup truck. I therefore think the author has taken this too far.

Now, about the book. I don't see it so much as a "guide" as a recollection of the author's personal experience. And the writing style seems terse and a bit choppy; perhaps it was written in "minimalist" style? Perhaps the author's journalism background comes out here as it seems more "newsy" than "bookish". I did take away a star for that.

All in all, it was worth reading and would recommend it if you are interested in how one person did it and is living the life she claims to want. You may even pick up a few tips (although "get rid of everything you absolutely don't need" is pretty obvious for those seeking this kind of lifestyle). But I debate the "Guide" part of the title and think the author's journalism background shows in the writing style.

An inspirational, quick read for those wishing to declutter their lives--physically, mentally, or spiritually. Not a " how-to" guide. Just a short, personal story w/ a few useful suggestions. Too short!

Dear Kelly,

Thanks for sharing a short and powerful read! I enjoyed it and read it this afternoon in the midst of Saturday straightening. Your's is a sweet story of living simpler and I enjoyed reading it even as I am beginning the same process. Multiple messages from several avenues to the the same in my world, including my own health challenges with autoimmune disorders and a recent diagnosis (last summer) of a brain tumor (meningioma) and epilepsy.

I've already begun the simplifying process in earnest this spring with my career-work, transitioning to where I experience joy, or to quote you, "matching my interests to my actions for the sake of (my) good health and a satisfied soul. It feels positively wonderful!

I had a small shop that I opened last winter where I sold gently re-purposed vintage items and realized that even that led to collecting more things than suited me, or our home. Closing up shop at the end of this month (April 2014) and I was going to have a grand yard sale to sell it all and I keep getting (intuitive voice) to do it simpler, give it all away to a local charity, even though I have invested a fair dollar amount for the lot of it, household and furniture items. Going to talk to my hubby, but I think I am going to just donate it all, knowing it will do great good and I will feel even lighter and freer to explore and experience what matters most, love and service.

Thanks for writing!!! Looking forward to reading more from you!

With caring heart . . .
