“This is my life” – all 17 years and 3 months left*

I’m searching for my focus in this next phase in my life.   (I’ve probably always been searching – this is the first time it’s conscious).  In my search I found this Holstee Manifesto video.

My 3 favorites are:

  • If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
  • Getting Lost will help you find yourself
  • Stop over analyzing
  • We are united in our differences

The more I think about it the more I realize I’m in a pickle.  The Holstee Manifesto says:  “Do what your love”.  Well,  I love my job and  . . .  I’m quitting.  Now I’ll have more time to watch TV . . .  I’m feeling more and more lost.  But it feels good to know we are all united differently in the same search  . . .  I’m very confused.

  1. First Manifesto I’ve read worth re-reading and posting on my desk. Less TV, more ice cream and getting lost are right up my alley – I can LIVE with that!


  2. i wonder if this was filmed in Porland, Oregon. Portland is a major biking community with everything from bridge crossings en masse to nude bike rides.


  3. Hello Judy-Judith! I love the Holstee worldview (and have their beautiful handmade paper greeting cards on hand with this manifesto printed on the front – a perfect all-purpose message for any occasion!)

    Good luck sorting out your pickle….




      • everything in moderation. That is what we need to think. Enjoy it. that is something we don’t do in this country with food a lot of the time….Savor it. We spend so much time thinking is this good for me, is this bad….
        We need to savor the food we eat, enjoy life. take the time to enjoy what is around us. If we are present with what we are doing, really savoring what we are eating, we are much less likely to eat too much, or mindlessly eat. So enjoy that sandwich and pickle, if you really savor the taste, you might find you only need a part of it, and can savor more of it later. don’t deprive yourself….savor life.
        Do what you love….Often!

        about loving your job and now leaving it. Yes you are leaving your job, but you aren’t leaving who you are. and your job is part of who you are. You are that person….no you won’t be going in to your office or getting paid, but really, you are that person. You aren’t going to change. And you can still do some creative workshops and such. They are just too much fun.
        and so are you.
