One of my favourites is called, "Miss Minimalist: Inspiration to downsize, declutter, and simplify". Not only did I find it helpful and inspirational to downsize, declutter and simplify but it changed my outlook on something pretty huge. Let me tell you a story.....
I was walking with a friend on a waterfront trail and we stopped to talk to a couple of women. We found out these women were teachers, as was (still is) the friend I was with. We were all talking and smiling. When one of them asked what I did I said, "I work at SuperPet" and the body launguage instantly changed. Both women nodded, stopped smiling and turned away from me, still facing my friend. Another women joined us, friends with the other two and they talked about how they were all teachers, doing what and where. Afterwards she asked me what I did and this time I said, "I'm the administrative assistant at SuperPet" and the body launguage instantly changed again. The other two women turned towards me once again.
I thought about this occurrence of the past years, wondering what I would say that might have been different with each change in my situation, especially after closing my business and becoming 'only' a stay at home mom, since that doesn't begin to cover it but I don't feel a 10 minute conversation is needed/desired either. After reading the passage (below) in this new book I have a brilliant answer.... "I am a Bliss Seeker"!!
What a perfect description that anyone who knows me would have to agree with. I love what it means to me, love the definition of it, I love what it implies and how it even rolls off my tongue. It's perfect.
