benefit #2 – the example for my kids
May 30, 2008
another benefit of choosing to live a minimalist lifestlye is that it sets a fantastic example for my children.
my kids are 5 and 2 right now and soaking up so much from my wife and i about how we live and what we value. becoming minimalist shows my kids that we do not need personal belongings to be happy, that our security is not found in the things that we own, and that the pursuit of happiness runs a different road that the pursuit of possessions. those are life lessons that they will never learn at school. and unfortunately, will not learn from us until we successfully navigate this transition.
