This!

Their documentary made a big impact in my life and little by little I am implementing these ideals in all areas. Less (clutter and distraction) is definitely more! More time and mental and emotional bandwidth to focus on what/who truly matters! Many thanks! 😘

If I could leave a million stars I would

Thank you for being you and for doing what y’all do. Thank you for not making me feel judged or guilty. I cried when I listened to your response to me. I’ve made strides and I’ll continue to do that and I’ll continue to listen and truly hear ♥️ All the best!

Used to like this show now its just a commercial for Patreon

I used to like this show, but now it’s just a teaser to get you to pay for Patreon. There is enough free information on minimalism so Im not wasting money on this.
