Ease

Every time I sit down to write one of our posts and episodes for what we’ve informally called the little word series, I think of 2 or 3 more I’d love to talk about. I can now confidently say that this series of posts and episodes will definitely be back after we’re done with the last two I had in mind for this time around. We’ve already talked about patience, excess, change, fear, and one of my favorites, labels, and we’ve got just two more to go. Today, we’ll be talking about what has possibly been denied, repressed and pushed back in modern society and in our lives and formative years in the biggest way, and that is the pursuit of ease. Ease will be our little word for today as we discuss eating, our stress levels, time, mindfulness and the emotional aspects of ourselves that have an impact on the way we eat, the choices we make and our general well-being.

Is it just me or is anyone else noticing a serious busyness epidemic in our world today? “Busy” has become the new “fine” when we ask people how they are, not as a complaint, but more often than not as a little badge of honor. Everywhere we turn, and especially in social media, it’s all about the hustle, the getting things done, the systems and ways in which we can do more, using time to an inch of its life. In last week’s podcast episode I answered a listener question from one of our Sams (our gender-neutral pseudonym for all our listeners and readers who send us questions). Sam had asked how Carlos and I manage to have Brownble up and running with its constant flow of content that is released weekly AND also have our day jobs. You can listen back to last week’s episode to hear my full answer, which had mostly to do with getting organized and sticking to the plan so it becomes a habit (especially in terms of the content we create).

Anxiety and Me

Hello my lovelies! So much has happened around here since last Thursday that I feel I’ve been away forever and it’s only been a week. As you probably know by now, our brand new course The Roadmap is going live in just three days (three days! Eeek!). What’s even more shocking than that, and why Carlos and I keep pinching each other, is the fact that our early bird students and members are already enjoying the course and loving it! It’s no longer our little baby safely tucked away in our little home anymore. Now it’s out there, for almost everyone and soon to be everyone to see and be a part of. It seems crazy to me that for over a year we’ve been at this non-stop, and now a whole new chapter in Brownble begins.

This journey has been amazing, exhiliarating, fun, eye-opening and full of lessons, and I can’t thank you enough because without you it wouldn’t be possible! To top things off, we’re getting ready for a big kitchen remodel around here, which you’ll all get to see in action of course, and that has meant filming round the clock so that all our content can continue to come out in spite of our house looking like the Hulk came to visit and suddenly got really angry. Add to that the normal and sometimes challenging things of daily life, and situations that have had to be resolved as they pop up, and we honestly feel like a whole new stage of life is ahead. It feels just like when you finish something really big, and now comes the calm and a new adventure we can feel coming, but can’t quite tell what it is yet. The roadmap in and of itself was a huge breakthrough for me in particular. I went to places I hadn’t been to when it comes to the way I share content and my personal views, not to mention the fact that it challenged everything I thought I could and couldn’t do.
