A Few of Our Favorite Guest Posts from 2017

Every week we try to share something interesting, educational, entertaining or inspirational with our readers through posts we write for Life and Whim’s Journal. But this is not the only place where we produce content. Over the past year we’ve been fortunate to have formed relationships with other online platforms who have invited us to share our thoughts with their own audiences.

As we ease into the new year, we wanted to highlight a few of our favorite posts that we wrote for awesome websites and online communities such as No Sidebar and Simple as That during the past year.

We have exciting new collaborations coming in 2018 as well, so stay tuned for great content on our site and beyond in the coming year!

How Minimalism Empowers the Pursuit of Big, Ambitious Dreams

We’re by no means minimalists in the purest sense of the word, but we have made it a priority in recent years to try to live a simpler, more purposeful life. At the same time, with the growth of Life and Whim, and a recent transformation we’ve made with our marketing agency, we’ve been busy chasing some big dreams. We’ve found that the real power of a minimalist mindset is that it helps to create the space and time to pursue more things that matter, and less that don’t. Check out this post for No Sidebar in which we discuss the fact that minimalism not only doesn’t stand in the way of achievement (no matter how you define it), it’s what fuels it.
