Hello lovelies! I'm a bit late in getting this posted, as I was out all day and then fell asleep pretty early (the consequence of which is that I'm now awake at 2:30am!).
I'm feeling a calling to change my blog name to better suit what's coming very soon down the road. I'm working on some creative projects and I need a fresh title. What do you think about that idea? Should I change it? Should I stay Sweet Maple?
Here is my answer to Day 3's prompt. The topic to write on today is a carry-on from yesterday.
"What’s your definition of freedom in business and adventure in life?"
I know I said I dream of opening a beautiful little store with purple walls, preferably in Kensington Market, but for me, total freedom in business would have it being online where I can always work from home or on the road. I wouldn't be tied down to a brick-and-mortar location, even though I can't ever see myself leaving the Toronto area.
I could travel across Canada in an RV if I wish, not worrying about getting to my job every single day, because it would be right in front of me on my laptop. Everything about my work is fluid and flexible, with tons of creative time.
I could check my schedule and smile.
I could work in a coffee shop, play in the woods, work in a car, create in a little blanket fort filled with lights.
I could say no to things that didn't suit me or my business.
I could say YES to things that enriched me or my business.
I have fewer belongings which can up and travel with me at any given time.
I would have more facetime with my children.
I would quit playing it safe, and let loose the wildness in my heart. I would be a succulent wild woman, the kind born right from one of Sark's lovely books. I would self-experiment and always seek new knowledge, understanding, and experience.
My anxiety would not cripple me as I set my own pace, style, and live my creative dreams of birthing my art babies into the world and inspiring people to live both amazingly and simply.
Freedom is always an option, and adventure is always all around you.
How does this resonate with you? I'd love to know!
