The List

One of my favorite blogs is The Minimal Student.Even though, she doesn’t update often, it’s fun to go back through the archives and read all the interesting posts introducing or encouraging young people to consider minimalism. She’ has a bucket list of sorts on her website. It inspired me to write my own.

I almost got hung up on writing the “perfect list”, worried about missing an item or writing something I would later not want. Then, I reminded myself that this list is revisable.

It’s amazing what happens when you remind yourself that you don’t have to always want what you want now.

Life decisions are revisable.
