This has been a good writing week for me. I put one new post on here and on Medium about what living an uncluttered life means to me. It seems to have gained some traction, because I feel like many of us are looking for simpler ways to live our lives. We want to make them more about experiences and less about the stuff.
I have also posted two more pieces on Medium. Why I'm Trying Not to Worry about Tomorrow, is about focusing more on present moments rather than worry about what is to come tomorrow or what has happened in the past. While we are shaped by our past, it doesn't define us, and tomorrow hasn't happened yet. So, why do we keep worrying about it? However, living in the moment is definitely a process in which we need to make sure we give ourselves grace and patiences in its pursuit.
The second piece was scary for me to write. Fight or Flight Happens When Least Expected might be one of the most transparent pieces I've written. It's about my new job and how I feel completely vulnerable and unsure of myself for one of the first times ever. There are always learning curves in a new job, but this is beyond anything I've ever felt. It was therapeutic in one way but hard to admit when I might have made a mistake. It was also different for me to write, because I'm such a positive twist on everyday experiences kind of gal. This was more just me being completely real and raw. Cue the butterflies in my stomach.
As always, I'm grateful and humbled by everyone who reads my posts. While I write for you in the hope that the content strikes a cord in some way, I'm discovering more and more that writing for an audience of one (myself) is also vitally important. Thank you for being on this journey with me!
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
