Here’s a radical notion: What if you really liked, even outright adored, every material thing in your own life? What if the quality, shape, color, function, and feel of everything you owned gave you satisfaction, pride, and delight?
Often, people hold on to futons and tired old chairs long after their university days have passed. “Well, we hate it,” they say, “but we really need it.” Get rid of it.
When you let go of things you don’t love you create space for things that you do love to show up. If you don’t like something in your space, it’s dragging you down. This is about how stuff makes you feel.
Satisfaction and delight feel just right.
IDEA: Identify the “old chairs” in your life that you’re making do with and get rid of them. You may have to sit on floor cushions for a while, but you’ll be dwelling in possibility instead of compromise and regret.
