There is this scene in the last episode of Friends which all of casts stood together in Monica’s empty apartment, tried to recollect the memories they shared together in the apartment. The scene depicted the farewell perfectly.
I’m lying on my bed while writing this post, staring at the empty bedroom, feeling blue, knowing just how hard it is to say goodbye to the place where you crafted so many memories in. It’s hard to pack all the stuff in the boxes. It’s hard to think that this room won’t be mine anymore. It’s hard to put all the memories in those boxes, close them, and to know that I’m gonna really miss it..
One misconception about minimalism is that it requires barren rooms, stark white walls, a vast emptiness.
