Jonathan Look shares a story of a similar journey to finding a better lifestyle in retirement.  Like most of his generation, he was a happy boomer consumer but realized that he needed to get rid of most of his possessions (including his house) to live out his new adventurous vagabond lifestyle he wanted to create for himself.

Jonathan’s new attitude is, “that minimalism isn’t about scraping by with less; it is about mindfully only allowing things into your life that add value. I know this isn’t for everyone, but giving up everything has gained me the world.”
