Outstanding Minimalists Blogs in no particular order.
Nature is aware of everything by @gabrieladifazio
I believe that if nature could speak through words she would be giving us a great sermon on a lot of situations that have arisen since the beginning of time as if she were a mother scolding her children, but unfortunately, she has to resort to subtle and not very subtle manifestations to show us that she is here with us, attentive to our every movement.
Nature "knows" the meaning of its existence by @chaodietas
Many people take nature as part of the decoration of their environment. For example, we have a garden, but the function we give it is aesthetic. The same can happen with pets when we give them a utilitarian purpose of adornment or represent a status. But nature is much more than this! When we reduce every element of nature to ornamental purposes, we reduce ourselves because human is part of nature.
Listening to the Animals by @nickydee
After years of "being socialized", I got to the point that I hardly knew what I was feeling at all. Bar happy, sad or angry. And all of these were often hidden behind a socially acceptable mask anyway. Do you want to know what happens when people aren't allowed to be who and what they truly are? They turn to alcohol. Or drugs. Or food, sex and social media. Or any of the gazillion behaviours we humans adopt to ease the pain of daily living.
Rejuvenation Doesn’t Come Quietby @r-nyn
If nature was simply “there,” it would definitely not echo your laughter, the lingering aroma of fresh sprouts and rain-soaked tender earth wouldn’t ease your pain, and the cicada’s crying wouldn’t reflect as music in your ears.
The Sky is Grey by @millycf1976
Grey is the necessary colour that we need to see to make good decisions. Do not think in absolutes because challenges are going to be with you throughout every stage of your life. Knowing, accepting and embracing the good and bad will help.
🔸 The community encourages authors to engage and build rapport with other team members by leaving meaningful comments.
🔸 If possible we recommend that authors try to use personal photos, however, if free images from the internet are used, please be sure to cite all relevant sources for photos and text.
🔸 Just a reminder that the weekly #KISS Blog Ideas is presented with ideas on topics to write about and to help you to structure your blogs, they are not meant to be questionnaires for you to list information and publish.
🔸 The presentation of your blog goes a far way and sharing aspects of your lives and your personal stories and experiences should be a lot more than a list that can be found in various places over the web.
🔸 There's no need for you to wait or only blog in response to the prompts provided. You're free to share any aspect of your minimalist lifestyle at any time.
Thank you for checking out the #MoreOrLessTheBest Curation Compilation presented by The Minimalist. This is the new official community account, where the weekly #KISS Blog Ideas and all community events and activities will be published from.
I invite you all to get involved and share your stories about minimalism, and perhaps you would like to invite someone.

Thank you for the kind mentioning. It's amazing how we have so diverse point of view when it comes to nature. Kudos to all for sharing the thoughts and bringing joy to others and making them aware of nature's awareness.
