As 2013 closed out and we rolled into 2014, there was one phrase that was our mantra through this transition: SIMPLIFY - as if your life depends on it.
Upward Spiral has grown a lot in the past year and we are working hard to make our ultimate dream of opening the Upward Spiral Center for Healing and Transformation come true. Our new website is the very beginning of this new chapter for Upward Spiral.
The process of growing a business is complicated and time-consuming. Luckily, we absolutely love what we do so the journey has been joyful, though not lacking in new lessons to be learned.
The big lesson throughout everything has been to simplify. It works as a business model but also for making home life more comfortable. One thing I've been doing at home is really going through my things, letting go of what I don't use, putting all like things in the same place (I don't need to keep thumb tacks in 3 different places, do I?), and really only doing one thing at a time.
I am less rushed, less stressed, and more calm throughout my days. My 'to-do's' are still a million tasks long but the more I focus on the simplicity in my life, I can maneuver the multitudes of responsibility with grace.
Wishing you all a transformative New Year!
