The Magic Episode

“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”-4.png

Something special is in the air. And it’s not just the holidays.

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about magic. The kind that appears wherever you go and that makes you feel incredibly alive.

I can close my eyes and remember specific moments in time when I truly felt magic. That feeling seemed to escape me for awhile, but something has been waking up in me again. And I just couldn’t keep it to myself.

So this week, I’m getting deep into the majesty of life, how to find child-like wonder in everything you do and why when you choose to ignore the greatness of every moment, you’re only cheating yourself.

The FOMO Episode

If you’ve been following along since the beginning of the year, and honestly, even before that, you know that I’ve been in constant exploration of figuring out how to cut back on the requirements we (and others) give us.

For me, it was saying no to a lot of trips and events this year. I didn’t know why, but I felt this overwhelming need to create space. Turned out, that the space and freedom I needed would be to deal with being laid off, losing my uncle and some unexpected travel to deal with all of the above and more.

But then those events and trips come and go, and the pictures are on the internet just reminding me that I’m not there. But because I decided to make it that way. Saying no isn’t always easy, but I found that three things helped me keep my sanity this summer, and I hope that they can help you too if you’ve ever regretted opting out.
