Family Brand: Take Back Your Family

Oct 7, 2021

Hey guys! Chris and Melissa here, As we approach our year mark of moving from Arizona to Hawaii, we’ve been thinking about the ways that we have grown and changed over the course of the last 12 months. If you pay attention, where you live can teach you a lot of lessons, and our experience has been no different. 

Listen in as we share the unexpected lesson of finding fulfillment with fewer things. While materialism is a big issue, we want to emphasize that wanting a bigger house,  a better car, and more things is not inherently bad or even frowned upon. But we’ve gained a keen sense of awareness of the big difference between our simple life in North Shore and the frantic pace of living on the mainland. You’ll hear our thoughts on how it’s changed not only our physical space but also our mental and spiritual space as well. 

Join us as we talk about how we quickly realized that even the small amount of things we brought are almost too much for where we are now. It’s easy to get wrapped up in feeling like we don’t have enough, which can put a strain on our wallets and our minds. We talk about the risk of comparing yourself to others and how that can lead to less satisfaction and more stress in your life. You’ll hear our experience of making time to figure out where our values truly lie, and how that has given us more confidence, joy, and freedom as a family. If you’ve felt overwhelmed lately it may be time to slow down and take stock of what is taking up space in your life.
