Since this is my first ever blog post, I feel the need to explain why ” Another Wonderland”? You might actually have an idea of where I’m going with this, don’t you?
You see, I’m a fan of Alice and all the adventures she experienced in this out-of-this-world place called Wonderland. Not only that, I feel like some or many of us may identify with her curiosity, struggles, questions and frustrations as she finds herself in this magical place. I totally do!
To be honest, I just turned 33 at the end of August and have been experiencing a range of feelings from confusion, doubt, fear, and lack of direction and purpose, almost like a lostness or an early mid-life crisis. I really thought I’d be doing something meaningful with my life right around this time. Instead, I have several things I’d love to do, but everything happens so fast! Childhood was so simple, I catch myself reminiscing about it periodically.
In my head, I dream of accomplishing all my goals and making a difference in this world somehow. I guess you can relate, too?
Then shortly after my birthday, my husband and I moved into a 557 sq. ft. studio for 13 1/2 months. So I have decided to roll back the sleeves and do some work by documenting this period of our lives among other things I’m interested in; I’m considering it our greatest adventure to date as we journey deeper into living a life with less.
This blog will record lessons learned and lessons in progress as I navigate, not Alice’s, but another wonderland called life. I might find out one or more of you just happen to be going through the same thing as I am, or you share similar values and interests as this gal. So I’m super excited to start sharing! I’ve always loved to write, so this will not only be a good outlet, but a place of learning.
So sit back, grab a cup of tea or whatever you like to sip on, and feel free to jump in on the conversation! Hearing from you will be awesome!
