If you live in the world today, you know that there is a myth of business, of consumption, of more, more, more. National holidays are turned into shopping marathons, water cooler talks are for commiserating about how tired you are, how much money you’re spending that you don’t have, and you’re wondering when you last slept a full night.
But imagine this: you get 8-10 hours of sleep per night. Your bank account is more full than it’s been in months. You’re getting everything done that you need to. Holidays are actually spent making memories with the people important to you. Your business isn’t running you. You’re running your business.
I’ve been dreaming about this imagined world a lot lately, because, like most of you, I’ve been really freaking busy lately. Things keep falling to the wayside. I keep apologizing and making promises to myself that seem to never be kept. It’s an old story, a familiar pattern, and I’m ready to break out of it. And I want to help you break out of your patterns too.
Because life is more than this: more than sleepless nights, endless to-do lists, and nightly interactions with that amazing take-out place down the street. At the end of the day, would you rather not be dying? Or would you rather be living?
I want to live a full life. I want to help as many people with their businesses as possible. I want to travel the world (again) and immerse myself in as many cultures as I can. I want to be the embodiment of my core desired feelings. I want to stop feeling paralyzed from the shoulds in my life and start feeling energized by the wants that are living in my brain, in my journal, on my vision boards.
And that is part of why things are shifting around here. If you’ve noticed an absence of posting, it’s because I’m working overtime to get everything ready. Think: new columns, new logo, new domain (!!!), new ways for us to work together. Because if the first half of 2015 has taught me anything, it’s that adapting is the way to survive. And everything inside of me has been telling me to change the way I do things. So I’m heeding the calls.
