lacylike Blogging today about why burn out is a good thing. Sharing why we turned down a reality TV show about living in the RV and where we are on the #youngfamilycabin reno. See the post at LacyYoung.com/blog
Here's the latest complete project! Bathroom lights made from conduit pipe and old glass insulators. I'm really loving our #handmadehome I can't wait to show you behind the curtain to the shower... it's nearly there. Think super industrial, boiler room look. Roomy with enough shower heads for a party.

lacylike This book would have revolutionized my 26 year old self in the corporate America days of struggle and striving. It was full of brilliant reminders to my 36 year old self. I am indeed an #essentialist exploring #thedisciplinedpursuitofless
Here are the notes I've scribbled inside the cover. Hoping one of these moves you too! - ask what's important right now - make room to enjoy the essential - less but better - ask: Is this exactly what I'm looking for? - Protect the asset (you). - learn the slow yes and the quick no - play is essential, it sparks exploration - create space to escape and explore life - say no to good opportunities and yes to truly great ones - pour your energy into the activities that are most meaningful - make decisions by design not default - a powerful phrase is "if you decide to"

lacylike I got up and enjoyed a long morning of mediating, porch sitting, bird watching, tea sipping, Cliff chatting, book reading, Ned holding and didn't touch or look at my phone until nearly 10 am... on a Monday! And the avocado seed has sprouted! I feel like running around screaming I DID IT! The slow down plan at #youngfamilycabin is starting to work! 🏼 #thisishuge #tomorrowyoga 3d

lacylike Just hearing the news about #WayneDyer transitioning. He touched my life and the life of many in my family so deeply. His books were the first that Cliff read when he was learning what it means to be a spiritual being in this human experience. My sister calls him "Uncle Wayne" and for years we've been talking about him like he was our family. He made this work of learning more about consciousness and the self accessible in such a loving way. Most recently as he was negotiating sickness in his body he taught me not to see it as unfair but as an opportunity for higher learning. Something I try to remember and practice. What I am learning about death is that it's not an ending so much as a transfer to our natural state. My life is so much better for having been a student of his teachings. Cliff says "he lived his path and I hope to do the same." I can't say it any better than that. #thankyouwayne 4d

lacylike "Even after all this time
The sun never says to the earth, "You owe Me." Look what happens
with a love like that,
It lights the Whole Sky."
- #Hafiz
I try to love him like that.... To remember that he doesn't owe me anything. And I don't owe him anything. That we are whole and complete beings who choose each other daily. I try to remember to listen in such a way that I get to learn who he is now without judgement and notice how his thoughts are different then they once were. Discovering him each day has become one of my favorite things. I may or may not read this post to him but looking at this image of him looking at me gave me a moment of pause, a nod to all the work we do. That felt worthy of documenting. #marriageiscool #lacyandcliff by @ashlie.woods

lacylike Intricate. Fragile. Beautiful. Like life itself. This is on a #passionfruit tree. It could be that it's 105 degrees or the stories coming back from students in the #chakrasystem ecourse but the sight of this flower made me feel all at once weepy and deeply inspired. #thankyounature #ilovemyjob #grateful 1w

lacylike Back at the #youngfamilycabin renovation project.
My little sister is always telling me to follow my feel-good-bread-crumbs. Sitting here sipping my morning tea, listening to the stream and watching Ned take a step and then shake out his paw I realize that - I Feel Good!
When we set out to have an #rvadventure we thought we were going to sell this place... it would be one more thing to downsize and one less thing to worry about. But it had other plans for us and we both feel grateful for that. Recently we've done less driving and more getting to know this land and her secrets. We resisted the thought of sitting still at first but once we gave ourselves permission to just do what felt good everything lightened. And so here we are still living simply, still exploring new lands and finding new parts of ourselves. And it all feels intentional. All is well.

lacylike Today's office. The new LacyYoung.com is soooo close to being born. We are sitting in this totally funky (in the good way) coffee shop listening to strangers talk about selling melons at the farmers market, sipping herbal tea and losing track of time. #lacyandcliff #createtogether #heartwork #rvadventure #mobileoffice 2w

lacylike This testimonial made me cry. Experiencing her #Shift was moving to the core of my being. "When Lacy said, 'You are exactly where you need to be and you will get everything you need,' I closed the email and wondered what I had been thinking (or drinking!) when I decided to sign on for the SHIFT experience in Calistoga. I remember thinking, well, at least the scenery would be beautiful. Yes, I was, if not a total skeptic, at least highly doubtful about what could be accomplished in such a short time. But I was so stuck that I was willing to haul myself across the country, shack up with a stranger, eat tofu and let another stranger mess around with my mind! Thus was my sorry state of affairs!

Somehow Lacy sensed that I was ready for a SHIFT, ready to shed the stories and beliefs that had been holding me prisoner in my own life. And in true Zen fashion, 'when the student is ready, the master appears.' Lacy met me where I was, spoke in a language I could understand, held me tenderly in her heart and totally whacked me upside the head (in the nicest, most loving way possible!)! To say I was surprised doesn’t even come close. To know why truths about me that I have struggled to accept for years were finally and suddenly available to me is a mystery. But it happened, in two days, in Cali-fricken-stoga, I SHIFTed.

Lacy said, 'You are exactly where you need to be and you will get everything you need, it’s your turn.' Now I understand.

Thank you Lacy and my dear Calistoga SHIFTers.

I've got this!" - BF, Kalamazoo, MI Stunning photo of BF by @emilywalen

lacylike Our life since moving into the RV has been a LOT of togetherness. It's been over a year now of being all up in each other's space. Every several of months we make sure to get away from each other (said with love and a giggle) for a few days so that we have the opportunity to think, listen inward and miss each other. Cliff just sent me this selfie! He's camping, hiking, working on his tan 😎and that smile says his battery is charging up. #rvadventure #lacyandcliff #rvstyle #lovehim #nurturingourmarriage #rvliving 3w
