We all know the old conversation – the “how to have it all” question. It’s been at every women’s conference for the past 30 years. Of course it reinvents itself all the time with new books about happiness or leaning in, but the conversation among women has long surpassed how to “have it all”. Mostly because “all” needs to be redefined. Now, it’s much more about how can I make what I have, matter the most. To do this we ask the everyday questions; how can work be interesting, efficient, impactful- – forward-moving? How do I spend time with my child in the most stimulating, meaningful, and truthful way? How do I not just pass my partner in the hallway or ask him to pass the salt. How do I wake-up to what’s right there — to what IS in my universe? How can driving to soccer practice, a phone call with a client, a playdate, a meeting that may feel just a little too far away, feel amazingly GOOD? How to find presence in the quotidian? How to find the awe?
There’s science on this, which is kind of a relief because I think we’d all like some reassurance that “all” is whatever you have right now. And if whatever you have right now is everything, then how do you touch, feel, taste and absorb all of your everything?
So thrilled to host author and filmmaker Betsy Chasse in LA June 1st! #theresabetterway.
