When your space is clear, your mind is clear.
Living simply serves to illuminate inherent truth, the truth that we were put on this earth not to accumulate things but to love and be loved.
You’re here. You are whole and perfect.
So consider the boxes checked; you’ve arrived! You get to be happy. Right now. The stage is set in the best possible way to empower you to live your best life.
Beyond the personal benefits, when you complete the New Minimalism decluttering process, you will be contributing to your community with the items you choose to donate to others. When you donate you are being good to the earth, keeping things out of the landfill and signaling that fewer things need to be made in the first place.
As you tread lightly, mindfully and generously, picture the ripple effect of your actions, radiating out from your your home, into your neighborhood, your city, eventually encompassing this little blue dot called Earth that we all share.
