063: Go on a Joyride, Aimee DuFresne, writer, traveler, joy catalyst

“It’s about being happy, it’s about living your life- not anyone else’s life. But it’s the life that YOU want to live, the life that makes you happy, that makes you share with the world what it is that you want to share.” ~Aimee DuFresne

Trust the unfolding…

Do you ever find yourself dangling the proverbial carrot in front of yourself? “I’ll be happy when I…” or “If only I could just…” or “I’ll take a break once I…”

Aimee DuFresne is no stranger to this trap, but through decluttering (inside and out), focusing on joy and doubling down on self-care and travel, she’s found a way to spring that trap and live an unconventional life.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • Aimee’s big “Joy Ride” and what it’s all about
  • Her adventures on her book tour that brought her to the west coast, and her time house sitting
  • What self-care really means (not just the buzz-word version) and some of Aimee’s favorite practices
  • How Aimee balances EVERYTHING out in her life
  • The day that her life completely changed
  • How the impostor voice shows up for Aimee especially around entrepreneurship and being an author
  • Aimee’s view on success

Aimee’s top life tip: Trust the unfolding.

“This is really exciting, but does it give me freedom?” ~Aimee DuFresne
