It's not just about saying no to things that really just feel like obligations.
Nope. The real work is saying no to really good things and experiences to make room for the best, most important, most fulfilling things and experiences. Sweet mercy, that is hard.
And I've noticed that it's not just hard for me as an individual. It's hard for me as a mama to do for my family, as a creator to do for my projects, and as a leader to do for my nonprofit and my business.
During this journey out of overwhelm, I've read and worked with some amazing minimalist folks, and I've discovered that they mostly focus on the rewards of simplifying. With one broken teapot, I offer support and perspective and a framework for the hard work of saying no to the good things so that you can get to the rewards of the best things.
