The Myth of Having it All

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.

My husband and I downsized, simplified, and became virtual minimalists (and virtual workers as well) a few years ago, and recently we moved to Nashville. 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.

Cool things …
