Allison Vesterfelt joins me on the podcast today. I have enjoyed watching as her writing career has grown immensely over the last few years. I recently finished her new book, Packing Light. I am excited to give away a copy to a listener.

On this episode, we talk about:

  • Restlessness versus being grateful for where we are
  • What if the story of the rich young ruler was a literal request?
  • We all hold on to things that we most likely need to let go of
  • It’s easy to cover up your dysfunctions when you have access to everything you need
  • No words are wasted when you write. They are all building blocks to help you get where you are going.
  • Writing can be lonely sometimes
  • Invite people into your writing process
  • Figuring out how to be practical and also monetize your art can be challenging
  • Staying stuck doesn’t make you feel unstuck, it just makes you feel more stuck
  • What’s preventing you from doing what you are called to do?
  • You build the bridge as you walk over it
  • Start with eliminating physical clutter. It is tied to the emotional.
  • Your life is waiting, but your arms are full
