How Living Minimally Helped me get the Maximum out of Life

I have avoided writing on the topic of minimalism because it is both a new lifestyle choice for me (of about a year,) and minimalism is a very precious subject to me.  I wanted to make sure I did the topic justice, and clearly explained just how beneficial it is to live minimally.
