Follow your ideal state.
For years, I confused simplicity with minimalism.
Simplicity is a quality. Or a condition. It’s something we aim for.
Minimalism is a movement. Or a trend. It’s something we join or follow.
Although minimalism seeks to achieve simplicity in our life, we don’t have to be a minimalist to do the same. We don’t need to join a movement or follow a trend, where someone might be working really hard behind it to make money or become famous.
We just need to define our ideal state and follow it. That’s the way to live our own life, no matter what.
