How do you create freedom and simplicity in your life? I did the KonMari tidying process years ago and applied it not just to my possessions but to my activities and relationships. As Marie Kondo says, "Joy is the criterion."
Why did you choose to do what you do? It chose me. I moved to the mountains outside of Colorado Springs in 2010 to "leave space for my soul to contact me," as I told friends and family. I needed a change from the pace and overwork in New York. I had recently purchased a book called 48 Days to the Work You Love. I didn't read past the first chapter. One night while in the mountains, I found myself working late on a friend's resume. Trying to put some of her magnificence onto paper created such flow, that it felt like a sign. I researched certification programs for resume writing right then, and there was a new career coaching program that looked interesting. Registration was due that day. I registered on the spot and the fit felt so natural. While packing to move to Boulder, Colorado I came across the 48 Days book. The receipt was still inside. Guess how many days there were between when I purchased it and when I noticed the flow experience of the resume writing and registered for the certification program? Forty-eight, of course. Message received.
My favorite self-care ritual is: A hot bath. Candles, rose salt scrub, music...it's a whole thing.What is your current favorite thing or experience? Operations and automation: I resisted it for years and I so value the personal touch, but I'm realizing that the more systems and processes I have, the more energy I have to be even more high-touch or creative.
