The Story Behind It
Once upon a time, Brooke McAlary thought she was close to having it all. Married to a wonderful man, mother to a lively young daughter, and pregnant for a second time, she'd acquired all the things she'd once thought important: holidays, cars, a renovated home. Yet despite this, she found herself utterly despondent. Realising that they wanted a simpler, more fulfilling existence, Brooke and her family gradually created their own way of living.
Everything changed when she began decluttering. What began as an effort to remove some of the excess, slowly evolved into a complete transformation. She slowly replaced the overwhelm, clutter, excess and busyness, with a simpler, more meaningful, and contented life. Now she and her husband are self-employed and enjoy a life centred on the important things
- which, it turns out, aren't really things at all.
