The More of Less

Title: The More of Less: Finding the life you want under everything you own
Author: Joshua Becker
Genre: Minimalism, Nonfiction, Self Help
Publisher: WaterBrook
Release Date: May 3rd, 2016

Joshua Becker, creator of BecomingMinimalist.com, defines minimalism as “the intentional promotion of the things we most value and the removal of anything that distracts us from them.” I like this definition because it encourages things in our lives, but not just “things” – the right things!

When we consume less, we have more time, energy, and resources to spend not just on ourselves, but on others as well. Becker states, “People who give away possessions hold their remaining possessions in higher esteem. People who donate money are far less wasteful with the money left over. And people who give their time make better use of their remaining time.” That’s the kind of lifestyle I’m interested in living.

To summarize, minimalism should bring more meaning to our lives by removing things that are truly meaningless. In having less, we find that we really have more – more time, more money, more energy. More of everything that matters, and less of everything that doesn’t. I highly recommend for anyone interested in such a lifestyle.

  1. This comment has nothing to do with this post… but I just wanted you to know that I just finished a book and then raided your blog to find my next series to dive into. So, the moral of the story, is I love this blog so much it’s ridiculous. I’m like, “oh, she gave that 3 roses? Not a chance.” And when I finish a book, I come back to see if I agree with your ratings and I must say, you’re spot on. 😉 that’s all. Love ya!
