Because of recent events, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about minimalism and how it fits into the context of us being the “helpers.” Of being active participants in our communities—in the world. Do we see minimalism as an escape from going beyond the mark of just ourselves?
Or is minimalism a vehicle that better allows us to make a difference?
I firmly believe that it should be the latter, but I’ll be the first to admit that I sometimes struggle to think outside of myself and my own family. I’m working hard to simplify our life and reduce the extra noise and chaos.
But am I doing enough?
At the end of my days will I wonder if I could have gone bigger and made a difference? Or does living a simple life open my mind and heart up to effectively and purposefully make a small dent large enough for this big ‘ole world?
