Don’t worry — you’re in the right spot. 🙂 I’ve made some tweaks to the look of A Mindful Migration and its focus ongoing. When I launched A Mindful Migration, the plan was for it to be a personal finance blog, specifically focused on mindful spending. But even back then, in my heart of hearts, I knew it wouldn’t last. After all, I made the deliberate choice to not use the word money or debt or budget or any word associated with finance in its name. And frankly, from an SEO perspective, that is a bad choice. I didn’t do it to trick anyone, but simply because I knew money wasn’t really my passion long-term.
I live the real world. It is glorious. It is messy. It is hopeful. It is oppressive. But it is real. But … we are all also characters in an Unreal World too. A world where the sun always shines, lives are perfect and every damn person has good news to share. It is aspirational, but it also a big, fat lie. Yet we believe. We hold our lives against this mythical world that only exists in our social media feeds, television shows and the movies. We discover our lives don’t compare and believe we’re not enough or unworthy or doing something wrong. We lie about how perfect our lives are as we stand hip-deep in caca. No more. It’s time to get real, people.
