For the past two and a half-ish years I’ve been writing about my Crafting my Life journey every Thursday. It’s been very positive for me. What started as an exercise in self-examination grew into a new life for me, an online class for moms who want more meaning, a play book and really a whole community. If you want to know what blogging has brought me, it’s this: a space to write in, connections with amazing people, and a sense of direction.
Creating Space Through Separation
As Crafting my Life has grown in its own right, I’ve been thinking about what I’m doing here on Strocel.com. It’s becoming increasingly clear to me that the two sites have become independent entities. I want to create space for each to grow in its own direction. I’ve decided to split them up, and stop writing my weekly Crafting my Life posts on Strocel.com. Instead, I’ll move from writing two times a week to three times a week on the Crafting my Life blog. If you’re on a mission to live a life of purpose and meaning, I hope you’ll join me there. Subscribe the Crafting my Life RSS feed, and you won’t miss a word.
I like the focus of having a topic I visit weekly, all the same. After some thought, I decided to go green with Enviro-Mama Thursdays on Strocel.com. Each week I’ll write something about my efforts to live a more sustainable life. In many ways, this is just an extension of my mission to live with greater authenticity and purpose. Taking care of the environment is one of my core values. It’s an expression of the kind of life I want to live, and as I do it I’m bringing more intention into my own daily routine.
I’m stretching my wings
Here are some subjects I’ll be writing about each Thursday:
- My One Green Thing for the month.
- Gardening and local eating.
- Reducing the number of toxins in my home.
- Green issues and politics.
- Reducing your carbon footprint.
- Becoming more self-sufficient.
- Environmentalism and money.
- Reducing, reusing and recycling.
- Green parenting.
As always, I love to hear your comments and feedback, and I really enjoy it when you share what you’re doing with me. If you’d like to tell me how you’re living a more sustainable life, drop me a line. Tell me your story, and share your hard-won lessons. I would love to hear about it all.
Searching for Clarity
This year I’m on a mission to achieve greater clarity. Separating Strocel.com from Crafting my Life and giving each site its own focus is helping me to do that. It’s good to have a vision of what I’m doing in this space, and what I’m doing is writing about my life and the things that matter to me. One of the things that really matters to me is doing what I can to have a positive impact on our planet. I hope you’ll come along with me for the journey, as I write about my experiences.
To focus, clarity and change!
