Defined succinctly, minimalism, as a lifestyle, is the *art of letting go. (http://twitter.com/TheMinimalists/status/814420450658938884?s=17)
*why we haven’t yet gotten to equity..

No matter how we contribute, it’s important to add value in an authentic way—without an ulterior motive—genuine and helpful and unassuming. (http://twitter.com/TheMinimalists/status/871662641860812801?s=17)
Identity is one of the hardest things to let go: it takes a lot to see ourselves differently.
Simple living encompasses a number of different voluntary practices to simplify one’s lifestyle. These may include reducing one’s possessions, generally referred to as Minimalism, or increasing self-sufficiency, for example. Simple living may be characterized by individuals being satisfied with what they have rather than want. Although asceticism generally promotes living simply and refraining from luxury and indulgence, not all proponents of simple living are ascetics. Simple living is distinct from those living in forced poverty, as it is a voluntary lifestyle choice.
Adherents may choose simple living for a variety of personal reasons, such as spirituality, health, increase in quality time for family and friends, work–life balance, personal taste, frugality, or reducing stress. Simple living can also be a reaction to materialism and conspicuous consumption. Some cite socio-political goals aligned with the anti-consumerist or anti-war movements, including conservation,degrowth, social justice, and tax resistance.
