I have been a little quiet on social for a few reasons; mostly, because I want 2024 to be the year of less

December was a tough month for my family, we needed more (uninterrupted) time together.

And, I have been trying to figure out how I want to show up in 2024. 

In November/beginning of December when I started to plan for 2024 I was ready to go all in, petal to the metal, work all the time, hustle, full calendar (because busy equal productive 😞).

Reality hit in November when I tried to schedule a dinner with friends only to realize I don’t have a free weekend until the end of February. I have weeknights open and a Saturday or Sunday here and there but a full weekend, not for a long time. 

For once this did not excite me- it induced stress.

I realized a lot has changed in my life recently- not only my goals and clarity on my purpose but also how I want to feel day to day.

I want to show up because I want to do something, not because I have to. 

I began to think, what if in 2024 is the year of less

Less commitments, less possessions, less stress. 

So, in 2024, I am showing up with less

Less judgement and fewer expectations; but (re)committed to my goals.

Less obligations and fewer yeses; but fully present when I arrive. 

Perhaps you also need this- it is okay to start the new year slowly and intentionally.🩷J
