"What if we could sit together in our home and feel truly relaxed?"
"We would be so much happier if our days weren't all transitions."
"What if we could be that family who says yes to spontaneous fun?"
"OMG, help me lose this extra 50 pounds of dead weight from my life!"
Family life seems to bring with it a mass of obligations (to have, do, and be all the things) that can leave us feeling so much anxiety.
I know I did after spending the first several years of parenting trying to acquire all the things from decor to toys to classes. The problem was, the more I acquired, the more cluttered and stressed my life became. In my zealousness to prove my worthiness to everyone else, I had lost sight of a fundamental truth I had already known deep down: to say yes to what really matters, you have to say no to everything that doesn't. So I worked to hone my values and step fully into alignment with them—in my home and my relationships, with my time and my money. I leaned in and let go. As I leaned into what mattered, my fulfillment and peace grew. As I let go of what didn't, my stress and overwhelm shrank. Turns out holding figurative space for your priorities requires creating literal space in your home, calendar, relationships, and bank accounts.
"There's not enough space, not enough time, not enough money, not enough patience . . . I'm so stressed out!"
"I'm so tired of feeling overwhelmed by my home, my calendar, my people, and my bank account. How can I be present when half the time I just want to run away?!"
"Minimalism looks dreamy, but I'm not a single, white, tech bro. How can minimalism work in a full house with a vibrant family?"
Through my work with thousands of families, I had witnessed the power of simplifying a child's life—it makes a world of difference to their well being (and the behavioral symptoms that communicate their unmet needs). So I began to extend minimalism more explicitly into my work and the results have been nothing short of awe-inspiring: the frazzled mom finds herself again and the out of control child centers and grounds.
The path to fulfillment lies not in the pursuit of more, but in the contentment with less but better—in going all in with what is consciously ordained as essential and letting go of everything else.
