Inspired by Linda Breen Pierce who wrote Simplicity Lessons: a 12 step guide to Living Simply, you can join me on
limiting your material possessions to cure Affluenza. Change your thinking and lead a thought revolution.
Do you own your stuff or does it own you?
Discover what you cherish...
Define what burdens you...
Isolate and item that you bought but never use...
Describe an experience with a possession that required more time and energy than you expected?
If you had 10 minutes to evacuate you home due to an a disaster what would you take and what would you miss?
What consumption pattern will you change in the next 48 hour?
What habit will you change in the next 21 days.
Looking at the bigger picture for my household, required me to control the triggers for consumption or what I call the "dream books" or catalogs of the retail world. Methodically, I ignore, purged and requested that the catalogs not cross the threshold of my home. Next, I needed to decline invitations to make-up, candle, and jewlery parties etc. that maximize peer pressure for the sale. I also realized that it was the art fairs, the one of a kind local artisian boutiques that really tugged on my heart strings and ultimately on my wallet needed to be removed from my social calendar. Then it took a visit from my mother to learn of my true complusion which is kitchen tools. Waking up from affluenza is a process and ultimately I share my experience so that you can feel the liberation and lightness that will carry over to other areas of your life.
