Happy Holidays! Today, I offer the simplest of Simplified Suggestions during this holiday season – please be kind to yourself and others. With all of the chaos in the world, kindness is the best we can offer to anyone and what we can control within ourselves. Show love to those who you care about and give yourself love, too.
As I reflect upon this past year, I am extraordinarily grateful to my family, friends and colleagues for their indelible support and love. Earlier this year, my resignation from a ten-year marketing and advertising career was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve made; however, my announcement was met with supportive smiles and genuine well wishes from everyone I care about.
Not knowing what I was going to do next was terrifying, but necessary because I needed to take a break for myself and pivot my career toward simplification. My focus was to relax and determine how best to incorporate my love of organization into a role within a company, but life took an amazing turn and I am so happy that my passion has come to life as Simplified by Jess. In the spirit of this Simplified Suggestion message, I’m also proud of myself for my determination and courage. Starting a business is not an easy task, but it is definitely made less difficult when you give and receive love and support. This holiday season I’m thankful for kindness.
Every piece of the universe, even the tiniest little snow crystal, matters somehow. I have a place in the pattern, and so do you. Thinking of you this holiday season!
