Minimalism allows me not to care…

Yes, you read the title correctly. Minimalism, or living simply & with greater intention, absolutely allows me to care less. (On the flip side, it also allows me to care MORE about the things & people that truly matter in our life, but that’s not what today’s post is about) Shortly after we moved to… Continue reading Minimalism allows me not to care…
