White walls. Rooms that echo with lack of furniture. Only owning one bowl. That sort of thing.
Since I wanted to spread my minimalist love to the people, I needed something that I felt was more positive.
what is lagom?
Lagom is a Swedish word that doesn’t exist in the English language. It has many translations, but basically means just the right amount. Think Goldilocks and The Three Bears.
This word perfectly encompasses what I hope to accomplish through this blog: Getting people to think about living with nothing more, but nothing less either. The ideal amount.
lagom is the new less is more
When we don’t have enough, we feel deprived.
When we have too much, we can feel overwhelmed by life and all the responsibility of taking care of things instead of ourselves.
Finding our just right, allows us to live in balance.
To live a beautiful life.
So I guess that makes me a lagomist. Though I’m not going to throw my bowl at you if you call me a minimalist . . . it’s the only one I got.
