I grew up in the country. Not like the suburbs-country. We had cows, and hay bales, and I was regularly expected to drive a tractor. My growing up years taught me a few things: pretty much everything in life takes time and immense care to grow. Seasons aren’t just a piece of archaic imagery that our grandparents like to use. They are real. And as much as I enjoy efficiency and meeting goals quickly, I’ve realized over the years that the good stories are always the ones with the well-thought-out plots. The one’s that take the time, that endure the season, that journey from point A to point B in a windy and nonsensical route.
I live in the city now. I walk to a coffee shop with my dog. I read novels and watch British television And I write about finding freedom by cultivating a creative life. Not one that’s all order and rules and processes. And not one that’s willy-nilly, either. There’s a middle ground that’s paved with intentionality, and it’s something I’m learning every day. This is my story of finding my own plotline.
So here’s the thing: you are finding your way in a crazy world, just like the rest of us. And isn’t it beautiful to know that neither of us is alone?
