Theme for Volume Nº2

The spring season is soon upon us and so next month we will be introducing our new Volume—Nº2. We decided that travel should form the basis of our spring Volume, so the theme we've created is Focus & Freedom. We'll unveil more about that in the coming weeks.

Living as a demi-minimalist

by tierneycreates

I am demi-minimalist, like the demigods of Greek and Roman mythology. Not a “textbook” minimalist, not a guru-level minimalist, but a mere mortal infused with a desire to curate my life to contain only those things that bring me joy and peace.

My demi-minimalist journey is not a epic heroic saga but a series of small-medium-large changes made over a fifteen year period of my life. The only “epic battle” in my demi-minimalist saga occurred early in the story with myself as I struggled to realize that I am not my house, job, or my things. I am something much greater.

A native New Yorker, it begins post 9/11 with a restlessness in my spirit and a sudden desire to evaluate what in life brings me peace of mind.

First I discovered what did not bring me peace: where I lived, what I did for a living, and the clutter that surrounded me.

Next I discovered within me the courage to begin the journey to discover where this peace could be found.

The roadmaps for my journey were books and blogs by those currently traveling a similar path.

My journey lead to a radical change in where and how I lived. I sold my house in Seattle and moved to Central Oregon, the smallest place I have ever lived. It lead to leaving a management position in a large office for a telecommuting 4-day week staff-level position.

It lead to moving from a 2800 square foot house to a 1300 square foot house and donating more than 50% of my belongings.

It keeps leading me to time to meditate, create, blog, be with those I love, go on long-walks in nature and to just be.
