Day 3480 – Penguin Appreciation Day – or – The Antarctic Experience

In honor of penguin appreciation day, I wanted to give a shout out to my super awesome client, and her amazing project – The Antarctic Experience. She’s in Antarctica now, and you can catch updates on her Instagram account.

Antarctica is high on my major bucket list, and I can’t wait to finally go. Have you ever been?

Day 3474 – 51 Hours To Drive Across The Country

Facebook reminded me today that 7 years ago, we had just arrived home from our drive from California in 51 hours. For a little while, I wore that as a badge of honor….but now, it makes me really really really tired to remember.

Have you ever driven across the US in a really short amount of time?

Day 3469 – Less Junk < More Journey

After our amazing 2016 road trip, we started thinking about living in an RV/Camper van/etc full time and traveling the country. I found so many amazing YouTubers who gave lots of info on how to do it. We have since decided that the bigger dream we have is the ability to travel when we want, and not so much living on the road.

But there was one channel that I continued to follow, Less Junk < More Journey. I just love their attitude, their fun, and the things they share about life on the road. I recently found out that part of their passive income is rental properties, yet another connection with them.

Before Thanksgiving, they released a new line of merch and I picked up one of their sweatshirts. I have to say, it is the most comfortable sweatshirt I’ve ever owned (I’m seriously considering picking up another one). And I love the message that it shares. It also gives me a chance to talk them up when folks notice my shirt.

Day 3468 – Surprise Photo

This morning, I had to find a photo from our 2016 road trip. While searching, I found one (see below) that I don’t remember having. I kind of remember taking it, but it’s a really fun photo and one I might have printed out.

It’s a good reminder to actually look through what you DO have. I can’t even comprehend how many photos that I have that I might not remember, between all those from wedding photography, our many travels, and just random things.

How often do you go through your photos?

Day 3465 – Finding Joy In The Journey

At least half a year ago, I purchased a mug. The day I found it, I was wandering through a dollar store, a little ticked off. I had traveled to an appointment only to have said appointment canceled right before I was set to arrive. I then saw the mug (pictured below) and had to buy it.

I drink my coffee out of this mug and I love seeing the reminder to find joy in the journey, it is a reminder I need often. Building our business has been one of the most challenging and most rewarding things I’ve ever done. I am consistently needing to grow, stretch, mold, and meet the challenges.

After a pretty long day, Bret was encouraging me to remember just how far I’ve come, even in just the last few months. Reminding me of the stress of taking less calls versus how many we’re getting now…what once was completely overwhelming, is now normal and a part of my day.

I try to consistently keep in my mind when I’m starting to get stressed: “imagine how much this will help you grow, you will likely not recognize yourself in a few months.” My word/phrase for this year is Journey More, Stress Less.

I actually love the fact that life is not about each milestone, it is about the journey itself.

So friends, find joy in the journey you’re on today.
