In Lean and Intentional Living, the path to improvement is lined with discomfort

Change often comes with discomfort, even change for the better. Our minds are comfortable with the status quo and reluctant to forge ahead into known obstacles and discomfort.

Cookies will not hold me back forever. How even slow progress is still progress when it comes to Minimalism

Do you ever feel that you aren’t as minimalist as you could be?

I did not stop and consider how much was right for me, I just assumed that whatever was in front of me was the right amount. I didn’t accept that I would need to make radical changes to clear the excess from my life.
