5/10/2016: Truer

A reminder to go after growing truer, not necessarily bigger. $25 giclee print available at the Made Vibrant Art Shop.

It’s very rare that I share blog post links on Instagram anymore, but when I do it’s because I want to share a piece of writing with you guys that I care deeply about. Today’s message comes straight from my newsletter to #selfmadesociety that I wrote on Monday, inspired in part by a great post I read by @byreginatv titled “How NOT To Get Caught In The Six Figure Blog Suck-In.” It’s on a topic that I’m incredibly passionate about, one that’s been on my mind a lot over the past year, more specifically, THIS question:

WHY do we feel constantly driven by the pursuit of MORE everything?

More money. More readers. More email subscribers. More fame. More mentions. More followers. More stuff. (Mo' problems?)

In this post, I share my theories on where this desire stems from, but more importantly I share this simple but radical question that is imperative to understanding and unlearning this never-ending quest for more everything: Are you in the pursuit of growing BIGGER or growing TRUER?

If these thoughts and questions pique your interest, I’d love for you to click through to the post link in profile (or head to madevibrnant.com/blog to find it) and let me know your thoughts in the comments.

To be content with less is a daring notion in today’s world, but it’s a notion I want to explore whole-heartedly. If you’ve ever felt LESS THAN because of the pressure to do more, earn more, BE MORE, this one’s for you.
