A dawning, a new realization and a cup of coffee

Happy Friday!!


Or Happy New Dawning of a New Day; regardless of what we call it. Another awesome "side effect" of working on my own is the ability to wake to a new day every day without being pushed into a routine that I don't create for myself. Not to say that I am not busy - some days are insane -- but just to say that I do not start with an alarm that scares me awake, begrudgingly, preparing for a day of my time that I do not own. Friday still makes me excited for the impending weekend and I want to welcome it with open arms. I don't think that energy surge will ever go away; just like waking on a Saturday feels somehow more fresh and open to new things.

I am still reading about the Minimalist Lifestyle and am finding that it aligns with the way I want to move through the world. It comes down to experimenting with the open days to figure out what works, lose what doesn't and altar the slight differences. It is pretty exciting to start down this path of pairing down of things that are like albatrosses around the neck and move towards opening up new avenues of living out lives. Creativity is not a 9-5 state of being.


Just Show Up.
