Let me ask you a question: have you ever known something that would have been right for you and done you a world of good, and yet, you didn’t do it?

Eh oui, me too. Cheers! Welcome to the club!

The next right thing for you to do may hover in the background for a l-o-o-o-n-g time, until someone spells it out. Since you are reading this, feeling lighter – in your home, thoughts, relationships, feelings – in your life tout court – might be the next right thing for you!

This article explores the reasons why you’ll want to lighten your load, but before we’ll dive into your WHY, let me give it to you straight: one can do the right thing for the wrong reason. There are a lot of excellent reasons to lighten your load. There are some less-than-brilliant ones.nes. 

Obviously, I do believe that lightening your load and letting go of inner and outer clutter is a good idea :).

The Wrong Reasons


Do you want to impress someone other than yourself?

Do you expect things to be comfortable right from the start?

Do you also expect miracles right from the start?

Do you believe that “go big or go home” is the only approach possible?

Do you believe that you have to do it all by yourself?

Do you think you can do without a plan, help or accountability?

This list is a Who’s Who of the biggest mistakes you can make when it comes to changing your habits and creating more lightness. If you don’t know them all, you do know some of them from experience, n’est-ce pas?
