*Republished 8/9/2017 and happy to see the amazing success of Joshua Becker. I was in his innagural launch of his course Uncluttered. His movement toward minimalism has been life changing for so many. Thanks Joshua!!
If you spend more time consuming, hoarding, and organizing stuff rather than spending time with the people you love and doing things that you want, then this post, simplify your life, is for you.
When I moved to Australia in 2000, I did something unthinkable to most people—I sold and gave away EVERYTHING in my home and business, leaving only a tiny closet space of personal belongings.
You probably think I’m nuts. Or maybe you think, “that works for you, but for me, No. Freaking. Way!” But simplifying your life, AKA minimalism, isn’t just about getting rid of physical possessions. It is a way of life…a mindset, and it doesn’t necessarily mean the same thing for everyone.
Joshua blew me away with his insights and thoughts on minimalism. He inspired me to look at minimalism as a means of freedom rather than an unnecessary sacrifice.
Please take the time to watch this interview. It just may inspire you!
So why are you still holding on to those things you don’t need? Try taking an honest look inside and ask if those things are keeping you from the life you want to live.
Simplifying your life can be simple. And no, you don’t have to move to Australia and give away your entire life’s possessions like I did. You find your own way. But it lets you relax and enjoy the time you have with people you love.
The stress of keeping up with the Joneses is not worth it compared to the peace that comes from owning less and LIVING MORE.
Choose to be happy now—choose to simplify…
