This is The Shed Project, and you’re invited.
On September 14, I’m starting an 8 week adventure in letting go.
I will be letting go of all but 100 of my possessions, and 10 lbs off my body.
And I’d love you to join me…
…because when you travel light you have more freedom and flexibility. You can explore different paths and different choices.
…because when you let go of excess baggage you create beautiful, clear space. Space to breathe. Space to see your world and life afresh. Space for new energy and new ideas to flood in.
But letting go is rarely easy. Which is why we’re going to do this together.
The Shed Project is about coming together as an online community, to support each other in letting go of the excess baggage. To support you in letting go of whatever is weighing you down.
What’s weighing you down?
The stuff we accumulate in an attempt to feel safe, secure, happy, successful, and generally OK.
The stuff we use to fill every bit of space in our lives, so we don’t have to think or feel too much.
The stuff we consume to feed the vague yearning for more, so we can feel a little less empty for a while.
How’s that working for you?
Stuff is a tricky beast. You get more of it and then you need more space to store it, and then you need more money to maintain it. It’s an endless cycle that rarely satisfies your underlying need for love, safety and fulfillment.
Is the stuff helping you feel better, or you still feeling hungry, fearful and empty?
It’s time to Shed It
Yeah, I know it’s scary, but we’re going to be right here with you. With the support of The Shed Project online community, we’ll do things we never thought possible before.
And you’re going choose whatever it is you need to let go on this journey.
Letting go of possessions is big. Who doesn’t have too much stuff in their home?
I’m letting go of all but 100 of my possessions.
You might want to let go of 1/3 of your possessions. Or empty that storage space that’s costing you money. Or finally sort through those boxes of keepsakes you haven’t looked at for 10 years.
You can let go of excess weight. I’m letting go of 10 lbs. You could let go of 1 lb (about 1/2 kg) per week for the 8 weeks. Or get rid of that comfort food that feels good in the moment and so horrible a couple of hours later. Or relinquish that other habit you’re using to numb out: smoking, drinking, or excessive TV / internet.
And, of course, we’ll be letting go of emotional baggage.
The awesome truth is this: whatever you choose, once you you start letting go, you will GAIN. You will gain unexpected and wonderful things that simply didn’t have the space to show up before.
So, what have you got to lose?
Join the Shedventure
As a member of The Shed Project, you’ll be part of an online community of people supporting each other in this 8 week adventure of letting go.
This is what you get as a Shedventure member:
** You will have, available 24/7 through my website, The Shed Project Resource Kit. Inspiration and guidance. Books and websites.
** You will have the support of our online community through a Flickr forum. We’ll share before and after photos, discuss the process and cheer each other on.
** You will be able to connect with other members of the online community and share blogging about their Shedventure, and links to your own Shedventure blog posts. (I’ll also be posting my own journey to 100 possessions, and to be 10 lbs lighter.)
** Access to video interviews with me.
** Live Ustream TV Q & A sessions with me.
I’ve gathered many guest writers who will be posting during the 8 weeks of the project about their own adventures in letting go.
These are people who have gone before us – losing weight, letting go of possessions, packing up, downsizing and lightening their load. Gathered from all over the globe, they will inspire you with their stories, ideas and flat-out bravery.
That’s what I know will be in The Shed Project right now, and I think it’s pretty exciting. But honestly, I’m even more excited to see what emerges over the 8 week journey.
When you get a bunch of vibrant, creative people together, truly amazing things will happen.
I know it’s going to be a thrilling and liberating ride!
I can’t wait. And I hope you’ll be there with me.
