Welcome! Thanks so much for stopping by.

I began this blog as a way to keep track of my journey as I realign my life to fit more closely with my beliefs and ways in which I’d like to experience the world. This includes a heightened focus on my personal finances, consumption, impact, and overall priorities.

This blog quickly became a way to share my experiences and significant takeaways from each one. I’m not here to tell you how to do something but rather make a connection with you in one way or another that will lead you to reflect on your own situation and experiences.

Words are symbols for shared memories. If I use a word, then you should have some experience of what the word stands for. If not, the word means nothing to you.

Jorge Luis Borges, This Craft of Verse
