Minimalism & Vulnerability
Learn how minimalism can encourage us to remove the masks we often wear in life. Those parts of ourselves that we try to cover up or ignore out of shame or fear. Sometimes we use stuff to hide, to project hyper versions of ourselves or to avoid feeling vulnerable.
Kelly and Lauren believe that as we declutter our lives, we become more aware of our physical and mental spaces and we have the opportunity to reflect on who we are and our desires. And through this process of self-introspection, we can then design a lifestyle that is aligned with our authentic selves.
Minimalism essentially challenges us to ask ourselves questions around what we truly need in life so that we can make smart decisions that shape a more focused and purposeful every day.
