This is a picture of me next to the first tiny house I ever saw in person and stepped into. What a fun moment that was!!
I want to talk briefly on labels and how we can turn them into badges of honor.
If you're feeling stuck, disgruntled, or lost, this exercise can help you rediscover your purpose and bring some energy and life back even if you're not content where you are right now.
You could (and oh how I have, again and again) say, "I am stuck. I am lost. I feel broken. I don't know what I should be doing or even what I want to do."
Rather than focusing on all of these negatives, though, why not list out some positives?
It is ridiculously simple, but brings so much contentment and renewed passion.
So, as an example, here are some of mine. I encourage you to make your own list. Write it on paper and stick it on your fridge. Watch yourself brighten when you read it.
