hello dear minimalists im just started to try to be a minimalist i mean a real one , while i was listening to your first podcast you said some stuff about throwing away our picture, well cause im new on this i thought it might be intemperance i mean why should we throw our memories away ? when they doesnt take place more than a book or two?when we feel good about them and by watching them time to time we remember good times and get energy.

I love listening to all of your podcasts, however, for guys that emphasise good English, it's driving me crazy listening to how many times you add the word 'like' into almost every sentence. Ugh!

This show missed an opinion from someone who has explored the topic from many different angles, like someone who's keen and experienced on helping people becoming unstuck. It sounded to me you guys were only validating each others' limiting beliefs. Even though there were some strongly relatable points made, every advice given didn't sound as encouraging but more like a deep sigh out of resignation and hopelessness. Thanks for sharing the stories, though 🙏

Great episode, as always! I have trouble listening to people sometimes too, I don't always retain what people say because I'm too busy thinking about what to say next.

I'm going to travel soon so for the whole episode I was wondering when they're going to talk about baggage in context of traveling, but apparently it was about some other baggage 😁

Great podcast, again! One simple comment, and a judgement that I do (learnt from you): whenever thinking on buying, I also think if I can afford it, and what am I quitting from. ❤️

Ryan, God has told us he would take care of his children. But at the same time he has given us common sense to make the right decisions and take actions that will also take care of us. It would be unwise not to rely on God, but equally unwise to think we don't need to do anything (not to be saved because that's why Jesus died). (That's summing up what could be an in depth conversation).
