Last week, I wrote the last rent check that I will write for a year, maybe more. Not stepping totally off the grid, but stepping away from the center of it all for a while...equally to send my son to music production school AND to focus on work I WANT to do instead of work I have to do to pay for things that don't really matter. And the end result will be more abundance...in every way.
Moving to a small family home that's been sitting there empty for a while. It's modest and remote. Extremely. But, it'll do! I'm seriously looking forward to downsizing, removing distractions, prioritizing what matters. We are replacing water lines, electrical wiring, etc. And I guess I'm gonna have to live with the...ahem...lovely red carpet throughout for a while. Small price to pay.
Family and friends got together for a work-party this last weekend. I was a little overwhelmed by the outpouring of support - donations of supplies, time, sweat and genuine concern for getting things situated for me and my son. My son was equally moved. He sat in a corner for a while, nauseous, realizing this is real, no more talk, I've gotta follow through and do my part, too. Yes, exactly. Accountability is a beautiful thing.
Being a part of the cannabis and hemp industries require me to be very intentional about where I put my energy. I've already started building a business in that regard, and am so excited to have a chance to fulfill my wildest dreams and be the vessel for some change.
And of course...to be able to make it possible for my son to pursue his own dreams...well, that is priceless.
I'm a huge advocate of questioning the status quo, taking that road-less-traveled, and creating ways to accomplish what many people tell me can't be done.
And I'm infinitely grateful to have the opportunity to focus on and create things that have been stirring in me for a long, long time. Me (and each of us!)...a soul in a body with a purpose that exceeds the daily rat race. And I am so excited to be able to focus on that purpose. It is our individual "purposes" that make the world a better place. Let the adventure & the abundance begin... Stay tuned, if you'd like to follow the journey.
My goal in sharing my story is to inspire others to find creative ways to manifest their own stories, too...
