I’m not afraid to say it—I’m a fan of Train. Yes, the band. I have this memory from when I was a teenager of my Mom and I driving in the car and blasting Drops of Jupiter.

It’s when you move beyond what society has taught you life “should” look like and instead build a life that you’ve chosen wholeheartedly. For the record, even the seemingly “normal” choices can still be part of living creatively if they are chosen based on love and not guilt or a need for control.

That year I watched as she grew her career, moved to another city, and built a life that felt aligned with her goals. At the end of that year she excitedly said to me, “Holly, this year is going to be the year of you!” My reply? No, it’s not.
My response was not based on negativity or self-deprecation, I just knew that I wasn’t yet in my final steps of realizing a goal, I was still in a time of mindful preparation. When she found success that year, it wasn’t because she merely wanted to, it was because she had spent years of mindful planning and developing to align her skills with her goals.
