I am so excited! This is the first day of my freelance writing career, and we are featured on HuffingtonPost Home. I’ll take that as a great big (((YES))) from the great beyond. Thanks to Amy Marturana for the fun interview! Read her article and tour our tiny house.
These are the power lines at the top of the hill where we live. I don’t love that we have massive power lines nearby, and am thankful to the trees for hiding them from our view, but standing up there last night, I felt gratitude for them. I squinted to see them as they climbed up and down these Blue Ridge Mountains bringing power to all sorts of endeavors. As I soaked in the beauty of the amazing fall sunset, I heard our friend Tracy’s unexpected words, “Wow those power lines are beautiful. It’s amazing what humans have accomplished.” Her words helped me to appreciate the power lines. As the sun sunk behind the mountains and the power above me crackled on it’s way to somewhere else, I visualized myself plugged into it.
Yesterday, was my last day at my day job. I quit my job to be a writer. I’ve been afraid to take this leap for a long time for many reasons, one of the biggest: my fear of not having enough. This tiny life has shown me how little we need, how much we have, and how simplifying and “cultivating contentment” brings happiness. I am grateful and very excited to have the opportunity to follow my bliss and plug into my power!
This morning, I wrote a list of intentions in my journal and hung them in my office corner. I intend to read them daily. This freedom is going to take a lot of discipline!
