Erin’s own life has been a rollercoaster of emotions. She explores how she navigated being a college graduate yet trying to find her voice in the world. Falling in love with a man who’s health gave rise to fear. Moving cross-country after economic hardships and a chance for new beginning. How her job, social media in specific, has been a blessing and a curse. With the advent of blogging she began her platform with styling, design work and her written word. Work piled up as life goes on as always. The fast paced nature of her work asked her to do more or be more, give more.
Yet through her book I (re)learn the importance of detaching. There’ s a time and place for work and the realm of technology but our own life deserves our undivided attention. Erin confronted the chaos of her demanding schedule through realizing that her marriage and motherhood meant more to her: she wanted to be more present. I believe we can all fall into a cycle of running in circles to keep up, or push ourselves to keep in. Sometimes we need to, but we could we also consider what we miss in the moment?
