A Journey to Abundance,
This review is from: Everything That Remains: A Memoir by The Minimalists (Paperback)
Everything That Remains is an eye opening experience into Joshua Fields Millburns journey into minimalism. JFM shares the raw details from the initial contamination of materialism in his early years to the full spread of the disease of materialism during the height of his corporate career. After JFM encounters two major life events, he reevaluates his quality of life and seeks to find fulfillment with living with less: less money, less things, less stress. JFM's minimalism movement spreads like a wild fire to his best friend and both ignite a blog to share their enlightenment and documentation of their journey. These guys on fire with passion spreading their ideas to millions around the world.
I have to admit, midway through reading Everything That Remains, I stopped to clean out my kitchen, closets, and bedroom to remove all the junk in my home that was holding me back, physically and emotionally. The detachment of these objects felt liberating and offered a tiny glimpse into the world JFM and Ryan live every day.
I love how the book leaves room for the reader to extract their own interpretation to apply to their life.
