I swear I believe in the power of meditation and it has changed my life. But in all honesty there are moments in life that call for kicking, screaming and crying.
Change evokes a lot of anxiety in people. Many get a vision of waking up in a place they don’t know, around people they have never met. Financial insecurity is often at stake. It can feel lonely and scary. But change doesn’t have to be completely life altering. More often than not it is about clearing a path, trimming some branches, and giving your senses space to roam.

I often suspected I was an introvert hanging out in an extroverts body. Turns out I was right.

But you need to prepare in advance—you need to have a pre-determined set of tools.

What are you drawn to? What places? What people? What things? The questions are endless but the answers could be a key to your future. Creating some type of visual output for your thoughts is often a great way to …
Life revision and reinvention is a process of self-exploration. It’s about giving yourself permission to imagine and fantasize about your future. It’s asking yourself questions and discovering whether you are being true to yourself–
Some might call this behavior irrational and at the very least impractical. I’ve heard reasonable people warn that we will never be able to move out of our house. I think they are wrong. Letting go doesn’t have to be a jarring process or a super human feat. It can be a slow and steady clearing. You don’t have to de-clutter all at once. And don’t let anyone tell you what you have to throw out, give away or donate—that is your decision and yours alone.
