So… we both quit our jobs.
That’s how this whole beautiful adventure began to unfold. We were tired and overworked. But we knew, could feel, and wanted desperately to be true that there had to be a better way. That the constant grind and push that we had been taught since childhood was what we had to do to “get ahead”, was not the only way.
So we agonized and we struggled until finally we made a choice. We chose to step off the path of productivity, to challenge the constant exhaustion and pushing that our culture says is normal, and find another way. We rested, which made room for play, and through both we discovered new levels of creativity and possibilities for how to live and work. We learned A LOT along the way, not all of it easy (one of us STRUGGLED with the concept of play) and we want to share it with you to ease the path a little.
