12 Jun When Less Really Is More
Less is more.
You’ve probably heard it before. It’s the minimalist’s mantra, and in a loud world longing for simplicity, it makes sense. Rejecting the extraneous and embracing minimalism is a welcome change.
But even minimalism can be complicated. A quick online search for minimalism brings up 334,000,000 hits. That’s 334,000,000 ways to “simplify” your life. A reality of living in the information age is the non-stop flow of ways to make life better. We can perfect our schedules, our meal plans, our health, our careers, our homes, our relationships . . . you name it!
perfectionism is insatiable. It always demands more.
Perfectionism offers us one of two mantras:
I need more . . . to have more, to do more, to be more.
And when we hit our inescapable limits and more proves to be elusive, it offers us the other:
I’m not enough.
