I love that FEAR acronym, too. Thanks to David for mentioning it.
Your post is an excellent reminder to examine our patterns and habits since it’s easy and natural for us to slip back into them. I occasionally make an effort to think about what I can eliminate from my life and then do it. Getting rid of the unnecessary or negative leaves space for more positive things (or even just for space, which is a treasure! There’s not always the need to fill it!).
As the birth of my son approaches next week, I am busy going through things, throwing stuff out, and filling the back of my car with donations. Feels so good to downsize, but can I continue the intention by not replacing it all with more junk?!?
