I don’t believe in false choices. And life throws plenty of them our way: Life vs work. Being a mom vs “having it all”. Spending time with the kids vs fitness goals. Pleasure vs health. With a little creativity, why should we not be able to put it all together, “stack our lives” as Katy Bowman would say?
We just have to come from a place of abundance and nourishment, instead of scarcity and self-denial. You can simplify AND enrich your life all at the same time.
In my world growing constantly is an absolute necessity. A bottle of natural wine is always a fabulous idea.
Fretting over macronutrients is overrated and calorie-counting is a definite NO.
Fantasizing about dinner is totally reasonable.
Striving for deliciousness is a must.
But at the end of the day, connection is all that really matters.
When I die, I want to be remembered as a person who made up new questions when she didn’t like the answers.
And who inspired others to connect the dots and take charge of their lives too.
