Less


The last few years I have spent consciously becoming less busy. So often I heard from the ones I love: "I know you are really busy but..." There were no shortages of times where I couldn't "fit in" an hour for a coffee date with a friend or a phone call. Down time was non-existent. I was always contemplating "what's next." It was very easy for me to get caught up in the energy and habit of having a very full plate. I thrived off of it.

There was no big aha moment, instead it was just a steady desire to be more fully engaged. To be a better wife, a better sister, daughter, friend, colleague. It was an acknowledgement that life is more than just showing up, more than just doing something. It is about living life at a slower pace. Daily embracing being alive, passionate, & authentically present. Knowing that a full plate doesn't equate to a full life. Fullness comes from the internal gifts that we have and who we share them with.
