October was all about rewriting the rules and living with purpose. Here’s the best of Purposing.
Because maybe you could use a handy little reminder to read, while I am moving to a new house with six children underfoot this week?
(Really the children have been super helpful. There are other things underfoot, though. Like BOXES and DUST and THINGS TO PACK.)
I haven’t hit the stage where I walk around muttering, “WHY DO WE OWN STUFF” and “WHO INVENTED CLOTHES” and “WHAT’S THE POINT OF DISHES.” There’s still time. You can follow our moving adventures on Instagram, if you like.
On to the highlight reel!
Live with purpose.
Call out the norms and rules that aren’t helping you, and make new choices that make sense. Ask the questions that help move you toward your purpose. Keep asking, even if the answers aren’t neat and expected.
On being yourself.
Because who else is going to be you, if you don’t? It’s easy to offer up the tidy version of yourself, but the real you has texture and depth and nuance. You can choose to honor who you were made to be. You can be yourself, imperfections and all.
On the moments that matter. (They all matter.)
On the importance of small things.
On having purpose during all the times.
On living your story.
Rest has purpose, and you were made to rest. (I hear that lots of you connected with this one!)
Say yes AND say no.
So many of you told me this was your favorite post this month. (Thank you!)
You don’t have to do it all. No one does it all. We don’t even agree on what “it all” IS.

It’s part ebook, part journal, part inspiration-and-ideas for NOT doing it all.
