The Myth of Having it All

Time flies when you’re having fun!

I can’t believe it’s already February! I was determined that 2017 was going to be the year I would maintain the enthusiasm and optimism with which I started the year. So far, so good. How’s it going for you?

But before I dive into my thoughts, I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for opening and reading this blog. I’d love to know how you discovered me and my work. Would you kindly take a minute and tell me, if we’ve never connected directly before (or even if we have, and you still want to tell me)?

Anyway, today I had some thoughts about “having it all.” I think we have been sold a bill of goods that we need to have a bunch of things in order to be happy. I’m such a slow learner I’ve climbed that mountain more than twice … accumulating all of the things and then realizing I had to care for them, insure them, get them cleaned, or worry about them … or all of the above.

A few years ago, my husband and I downsized and we’re getting ready (probably when our daughter graduates from high school next year … wait, what?!) to go mobile. As in, live on a bus and travel all around. Why share this with you? Well, I’ve worked with thousands of professionals over the years and the happiest ones were those that found a level of simplicity and joy. Those who were the most miserable were constantly worrying about something (not necessary someone).

I wanted to interject some positivity and encouragement into your days, especially since you’re taking the time to read this:

Remember this: whoever told you it was imperative for you to have, do, and be it all didn’t know what they were talking about. 🙂 Just sayin’.

Best wishes for your success. Be sure to let me know how I can support you in 2017.
