I believe living well is a journey, a process, and regardless of the season of life we are in there are challenges. I don’t believe there is a one-size fits all solution or an ultimate arrival place when it comes to wellness. Although essential, I’m learning there’s a lot more to being well than healthy food and exercise. And, it feels like a million little steps and daily decisions that keep us moving forward.
I’ve been self-employed most of my adult life, living and working alongside so many who also walk a similar path with familiar challenges. This journey comes with a yearning for accomplishment, balance, health and happiness in relationships. Sometimes, it can feel like a chase.
In this busy season of life as a spouse, parent and business owner, I’m discovering what wellness looks and feels like. Being well, for me right now, is about making space in a busy life to discover what I need most today—sometimes it’s a long run, sometimes it’s Chardonnay, a good book and a hot bath.
To live well is to listen, learn and lean in. It’s about creating and making and doing things that bring you joy. It’s serving passion and purpose over perfectionism. It’s about going with the flow. It’s about slowing down enough to take notice of what’s working. And it challenges me every single day.
So many of you on this journey inspire me. I want to start a conversation and community around whole wellness, a place we can inspire and encourage one another to discover what being well means for you right now.
