[Table 4:] Highlights of this book
・Introducing tips for living a truly rich life learned from customers we met at GUCCI
・Explanation of “how to reorganize your life” that can be imitated immediately ・Publishing a list of masterpieces that you won’t regret buying Learn to love yourself as you are by living small
In the past, the author, Mayuko Yokota, worked as a Gucci salesperson, visiting customers’ homes and witnessing their luxurious lives beyond her imagination. Mr. Yokota felt that such a luxurious lifestyle was a symbol of affluence, and he admired it. They wanted more things and poured their money and energy into acquiring more things. However, even after shopping a lot, I was never truly satisfied.
At that time, I became conscious of living a small life that was not dominated by material possessions. It is an encounter with a woman who lives a simple and calm life. There was almost no furniture in this woman’s house, and the only thing that stood out was a display cabinet. Regarding the shelves displaying only her favorite things, she says, “Even when I come home tired from work, I feel good when I look at this corner.” Even though I don’t have many things, I feel very rich in living a life where I cherish each and every item that I have a passion for. After this encounter, I began to reevaluate my own life. By arranging only my favorite things on a small shelf and practicing “small living,” in which I pursue my individuality, I explored what true satisfaction is. Through this process, I found a way to increase my self-esteem and accept myself as I am.
This book introduces recommendations for “small living” based on the author’s own experiences for all people who seek inner fulfillment that cannot be obtained through material wealth alone. Based on the author’s own experience, this book explains how living a life where you choose only the things that are truly meaningful to you, rather than being influenced by things, can enrich your life.
In this column, we introduce “really good things” along with specific product names!
The column at the end of each chapter introduces “really good things that people who live small choose that they want to keep with them for a long time.” We have featured items that the author has loved for many years. It’s filled with hints to start living a “minimally rich and spiritually fulfilling life” in your own way.
