I’d start by having a grateful heart. I’d be thankful to still be alive, even if I have only three months left, I’d make the most of it. I’d start to look at things differently and appreciate it more. I will start telling people that I love them. Sometimes I forget to say I love you.
Being a minimalist is hard. It’s hard because I am teaching myself new things and basically overhauling what I have grown accustomed to all my life. I have started this journey more than a year ago but looking at where I am now, it doesn’t seem that I have gone far.
I’ve come across this Japanese term, tsundoku, which means buying books and not reading them; letting books pile up unread on shelves or floors or nightstands and I thought, that’s totally me.
