The sign spoke to me because so much of the last 30 days on Whole30 has been about subtracting things. Lots of things. Things I loved, things I didn’t know I could give up, there was lots of subtraction. And the overall health of my body feels just plain better. I stepped on the scale this morning and that confirmed one very true thing for me: I hate the scale. Subtracting the scale for the last 30 days was a good subtraction so I’m taking it away again. It serves me in no positive way consistently. The scale is fickle.
I’m traditionally an “add-er” if things aren’t feeling quite right I like to add things to it – responsibilities, clothing from target that I wear once, a cat, cake. But this is so simple that I can’t believe I’ve overlooked it. Perhaps the reason why things aren’t adding up is because there is just too much – too much noise, stuff, action, stuff, choices.
The last 30 days I spent a whole lot of effort subtracting unhealthy eating habits. I’m starting a new challenge with the next 30 days I’m going to spend some time subtracting the other stuff in life. Would you like to join me? I’m going to send out a daily email. It will be short. It will be a prompt to subtract something. You can reply and let me know you did it because everyone likes credit (right?). And if you didn’t – that’s okay – everyones equation is a little different.
About the artist: I loved what her Etsy description says and I wanted to highlight that here – I love the boldness and depth of her journey and how it leveraged something that was a result of a WANT. I love that so so much.
As a result of wanting to boost my creativity, I embarked on a journey of creating 100 Posters in 100 Days. Using inspirational quotes as my basis and applying typographic treatments to highlight the message – this magnet is a reflection of one of the results in my series.
