Think-Back-On-It Thursday #9 - Travel

Amazingly, I've written 500 posts for Maximum Gratitude, Minimal Stuff, and I'm in the process of revising my older writing. I'm happy to notice that some of those older posts are really interesting and useful.

But many of you are newer readers and have never seen posts that were written in 2018, 2019, or even last summer or fall. And if you've been a faithful reader for quite a while (thank you, by the way), you've probably forgotten. I wrote the stuff, and I've forgotten parts of it!

It's worth visiting what we've written, read, or thought before, as both a reminder and for new insights. So on selected Thursdays, instead of posting new content, I'm going to direct you toward posts of the past that I think are worth a re-read.

Always travel light.

Many of us are traveling this summer, finally going on some of the big trips we planned and postponed during the pandemic. Jon and I will enjoy a short stay on the coast, saving a longer trip for November, when we plan to fly with our two older grandsons to visit Jon's mother in Arizona.

Traveling gives us the chance to live with less, since we take only a small fraction of our belongings when we leave home. Packing a suitcase is good practice for choosing only what you need and want and leaving the rest behind. It's very minimalist.

Here are some posts about aspects of travel to put you in a minimalist mindset.

Make More Memories by Taking Fewer Photos, from June 7, 2021

We're so used to taking photos of everything that we might not realize we're offloading our memories instead of making them. If you want to preserve your special moments, put your camera down, pay attention, and use all of your senses.
