DOES MINIMALISM AND FINANCIAL FREEDOM GO HAND IN HAND?


Important questions are difficult to answer. When do I want to stop working (as in the way we know working)? Or, does this familiar routine still make me happy or is it an opportune time to shake things up? Ah, but what about my comfort zone? Another timely one is, as the title suggests, does minimalism and financial freedom go hand in hand? The thing with profound questions is, well, they are deep and uncomfortable. It pushes us to dig into those deep crevices, way below the surface of our so-called easy tasks. It demands that we sit down and evaluate life seriously. In a nutshell, it's not as fun as scrolling and laughing through relatable memes.

My first thought around minimalism was when it doesn't have a name - at least a name that I know of. Tucked into my apartment in Prague last 2011, I realised: Gosh, beauty and fashion blogging is not for me. The only reason I can think of is accumulating things for the sake of a blog review (back then) does not sit well with me. I found so much relief when social media birthed a thing called minimalism. Or living intentionally, as I like to put it. Suddenly, I have a box that I belong into! That's not to say I won't buy anything - let's be real, that's impossible for me - but it's to focus on buying things that I genuinely like and make my life happy!

In a nutshell, you don't need to live intentionally if you don't want to but I think you'll achieve financial freedom quicker when you choose to invest in only the things that give you joy - no matter how small or big it is. -CMK
