When thinking about something like Grown-Up Gap Year, you might find yourself wondering if it is just a chance for you to indulge for a year.
Or maybe you’re thinking, “Yep. Sounds great, Tiffany, but do you know how busy I am??”
Oh, yes, I know how busy you are. I know how busy you stay. And I also suspect that underneath all that busy is the longing for a life that feels different.
A life where you’re inspired.
Where you have energy left at the end of the day to do things you enjoy, rather than scroll through Netflix to pass the time until bed.
A life where you’re connected.
To yourself, to the people who light you up, to the habits and activities that make you feel like the truest version of yourself.
A life where you have fun and laugh and play.
Not just on vacation or when an old friend comes to town…we’re talking belly laughs daily.
And from the outside looking in, saying yes to a life like this—even now despite *flails hands around* all the things going on—can feel indulgent, like something that would be nice but isn’t necessary.
…until you start looking at the evidence that shows what feeling good actually does for you. We’re talking:
So yes, I want your days to feel like an indulgence and to be filled with joy and delight.
And yes, I want you to learn how to show up to all of it from a place of radical self-belief, wherein you trust yourself to say yes and say no and hit pause and rest and play and love.
And yes, I want your life to feel good. So good. I want it to feel even better on the inside than it looks on the outside.
But also? I want everything on the list above for you. The motivation. The creativity. The calm. The peace. The focus. The inspiration.
Here’s what I know about you: You’re good at achieving. (Really, really good at it.)
You’re good at making lists and checking them off.
You’re good at doing.
You’ve learned how to raise your hand and say YES, to show up to your life in a big, bold way, to chase those dreams down.
And that’s served you! Because it can take some serious courage and resilience—some chutzpah—to get the things you want sometimes.
After being busy for so long, your days can end up looking a little like this:
Work, come home, straighten the house, cook dinner, work some more, put the kids to bed, relish in the hour you have to scroll through IG or zone out in front of a Parks & Rec rerun, consult your calendar, shower, sleep, repeat.
So as good as you are at striving, you might also be kinda…siiiiigh…on the inside. Kinda uninspired by the GO-GO-GO.
And you might be at that oh-so-important point of wondering: What ELSE is there?
To which I say: sooo much more!
And don’t get me wrong, saying yes is a wonderful thing to do! As long as that yes is coming from a place of deep longing, radical self-belief, and what feels best for you.
Which is why I want to teach you how to go deeper. How to design a life that’s infused with delight and joy and curiosity and wonder. A life that’s full, radiant Technicolor.
Sometimes that might mean raising your hand and saying yes.
Sometimes that might mean watching one more episode of Schitt’s Creek.
Sometimes that might mean registering for that pottery class even though you tried it a few years ago and could never get your clay centered on the wheel despite showing up for 10 Mondays in a row. (‘Cause sometimes finding center is near impossible.)
For the record, I can’t tell you what your Technicolor life will look like.
But I know that life doesn’t always need us to do more.
It doesn’t always require a to-do list or a checklist or a color-coded planner.
Sometimes the most delicious, savory, luxurious life moments happen when we’re exploring or experimenting or being radically open to newness.
Want to spend a year designing your life through that lens?
