The Emotions That Prevent Change: Why We Hold Onto Things and People Longer Than We Should
It is hard work to go through change. We all have to go through it, and if we are focused on personal growth, we are going to go through change more often.
As I move toward minimalism, I have had to work through a lot of emotions that I didn’t realize were holding me back and keeping me within the confines of clutter, stress, ‘have-to’ and allowing toxicity in my life.
“Less is best” has become my motto for my faith, use of time, priorities and spending habits. And yet, I am beginning to learn that there is so much more to this mindset than just ‘having less.’
My attitude is now focusing on adding value, on being intentional and knowing my personal goals above all else. This idea of simplifying goes into all aspects of my life - relationships, time management, faith, money, being balanced, careers, everything is covered by it. The truth is, I have found minimalism to be a freeing mindset. I am truly enjoying the process of becoming more by becoming less.
