Does Curating a Life You Desire HAVE to Be Complex?

By Åsa Nilsson | Sep 15, 2023

“Åsa, are you depressed?” asks my cousin one day. No, why? Because you’re spending all of this time on death cleaning. HA! No! 

I love that she asked me but no, I feel more alive and on purpose than I have in a very long time. 

Seeing the forest (and the moss) through the trees, getting clear in my home is the action I am taking but the CLARITY that’s unfolding before my very eyes is astounding.  Won’t you follow along?
