To make sure that you are dedicated to the process of simplifying your life and making a positive change in your home environment, print out and sign this agreement. Hang it on the refrigerator or keep it somewhere meaningful to you and refer to it for inspiration.
I, ___________________, agree to use my best efforts to slow down my schedule, pare down my stuff, nurture my spirit and live well on less for five weeks.
Leaving all preconceived notions and judgments at the gateway to a new experience, I promise to perform all written exercises in an effort to understand myself better.
At the end of the five weeks, I will have accomplished at least one of the suggested simplifying exercises.
My goal is to create an environment that nurtures me (and my family) so that I can spend more time pursuing things that are important to me and less time getting bogged down by my stuff.
