I don't know why I am doing these daily selfies but I sort of like the documenting of #thedailyoutfit. Today it's all about the red boots. #lovethem #oldgringos
I’ve been feeling really good lately. Our little family is in one of those restful periods where things seem to be running really smoothly. And business, though always running well ahead of me with a life of its own, is also in a steady and calm place. There is breath and rest and play and plans and inspiration and perspective. I’m soaking it in. Gratitude, big time. 
 “We cannot become what we need by remaining what we are.” – John C. Maxwell   
About a year ago I went on a mission to assemble a life team. I was tired of going it alone, and tired of managing the burdens of going it alone. There is a specific price we pay when we don’t reach out, when we don’t commune, when we don’t ask for help. I was getting weary of that price and made some radical steps to turn things around.  Turns out assembling a life team meant assembling a whole new life. 
First, I hired Lacy to help run all things KRR. Gosh, was that a good move. Then, John became a stay-at-home-papa. It was a bit scary at first to give up his good income, but it turned out to be the best move ever.
And then slowly a team of people came together in my life that I regularly rely on to help keep my spirit in good working order. 

A naturopath. An amazing therapist who I call my guide. A health coach and trainer. A beautiful cast of studio mates who I see on a weekly basis. A team of accountants, lawyers, bookkeeper. A massage therapist and energy healer. A web developer I can rely on. A group of neighbor mamas who meet regularly.  Even an inspiring copywriter. Oh yes, and my parents and preschool teachers are huge players too. 
I have no idea why I waited so long to create the support community my body, my spirit, and my work needed. I’m just really really glad I followed the call. I feel less alone. Less exhausted. Less burdened. 
I deeply believe no matter where we’re at on the path – whether we have a lot of extra money or not, whether we’re stay at home mamas or not, whether we work full time or part time – we can reach out for more support and create the village that we all need. As someone who has worn her independence as armor my entire life, this has been a huge lesson for me to receive. I suspect it always will be. But I’m learning…..
How about you? In what ways have you assembled your life team? How have they kept your spirit in good working order? Let’s celebrate our teams, because it really does take a village, no?

The sweet gift of amazement from a barista

  Recently, I was ordering my usual oat milk mocha at my favorite coffee shop when the young man at the counter, a barista, casually asked, "Whatcha doing today?" I shrugged my shoulders and answered, "Not much, just a little work." "Oh, cool," he said. "What do...
