Unfiltered: Thoughts from Seat 12E.

I just got back the from the Making Things Happen conference. And I honestly can’t wait to share what it did in my heart. I spent a lot of time in airports yesterday, processing, dreaming, overwhelming myself, and calming myself down. And I just had to remind myself: You cannot do it all. You can’t and you shouldn’t. Sometimes, something has to go. When life feels too full, so full that it’s paralyzing, it’s time to cut something out.

So I cancelled my Netflix subscription. And I unsubscribed to a bunch of emails that clutter my headspace and make me want to buy more things. I know, those aren’t huge life-altering things.

But I think the small decisions that clear out the surface stuff in our lives will make it easier to make big decisions about the things that really matter.

Because I know I need less junk and more goodness. I need less shallow and more meaningful. In all areas of my life.

And sometimes those little, harmless things are tiny strings binding us to a lesser life, holding us back from jumping into the deep end.

And I don’t know about you, but I want to dive into the deep.

So I'm cutting some strings and testing the waters.

I'll let you know how it goes.
