Creating a Simple, Intentional, Free Life with Miranda Anderson

Law Chat with Girija

Imagine not going shopping -- sounds simple, right? Now imagine not shopping for anything for a whole year. Our guest today did it and she’s here to share her experience. Episode Introduction:  In today’s Law Chat episode, we are accompanied by a true minimalist who tells her how she turned her life around by realizing the importance of what she already had as opposed to always chasing for more. Episode Summary:  Miranda Anderson walks us through her journey where she had always been used to independence ever since she was a young child and how that made an impact on her entire life. She shares all her milestones from being a nurse to blogging as a hobby and then finally monetizing her creative side. She also shares how she and her family have adopted the value of minimalism and changed their life. Main Takeaways: When you’re confused about what you want to do in life, stop doing everything and put things into perspective. Sometimes letting go off of the idea of the way things should be done can help you do better. You may think that you have wasted time while working in a different stream when you were supposed to do something else but you don’t realize the fact that you’re always learning and gaining skills that can be spun off and utilized in a different manner. Simplifying the little things in your life such as your meals and your closet can help take a load off of your schedule. Focus on budgeting your energy along with time and money. If you’re not utterly excited about something, then you probably shouldn’t do it. You should give yourself grace for sitting down and doing nothing. You need a break every now and then. Perfection isn’t about not bending the rules, it’s about bringing a level of intention to every choice you make. If you truly care about something, make sure you keep it protected. Resources:  Deep Work: Rules for Focused Success in a Distracted World Fun Facts About Miranda Anderson: Her favorite books are  Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown & The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister Her favorite business tool is Teachery. Her favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.

SMM 068: Taking Responsibility for Your Own Spirituality|| Miranda Anderson

Spiritually Minded Women Podcast

A few months ago, I discovered Miranda Anderson through an interview on another podcast. I loved her positive approach to life and immediately binged episodes from her own podcast, Live Free Creative, and read her book, More Than Enough. I was thrilled when she agreed to be a guest on my podcast. Living the Life you Want In the episode, you’ll hear Miranda discuss how she learned to live the life she wanted. She shares key elements she has learned of contentment and gratitude as well as setting aside the message we are lacking in some way. Miranda shared, “Today is the day that I want. The things that I have right now are the things that I want.” A Year of No Spending While attending a conference, Miranda heard these words, “You can do more of what you like and less of what you don’t like.” She went home with a new perspective that ultimately led her family to an experiment of no spending for a year. Miranda realized she was in control of her life and she didn’t have to do what she had always done. She talks about the lessons her family learned from the experiment and how their takeaways were external as well as internal. Overall, Miranda learned there is always something in your life that is good that you can be grateful for. Creating Space I loved discussing with Miranda how we can be responsible for our own spirituality. Miranda said, “It’s a lot more difficult to take full responsibility for our spirituality but it also makes it a lot more personal.” Miranda also discusses how she has learned to create space in her life to do as the song says–search, ponder and pray. She points to the example set by Christ when He took time to be away and “be.” Miranda believes “being” is as important as the “busy” things we do in the Gospel. No Checklists in Spirituality I was grateful to get to discuss a topic that has been on my mind a lot lately–there are no checklists with spirituality. Miranda pointed out that the shift in the church to a more home-centered approach is helping us to rely less on the structure and organization and be able to discover for ourselves what we need as spiritual beings. Partner with God in Motherhood Miranda talked about knowing who she is and how her divine identity translates to her role as a mother and in her relationship with God. She understands why she doesn’t have to be everything for her children. “My job is to get to know the divine beings that they already are and we learn together.”   Follow Miranda Instagram: @livefreemiranda Website: livefreecreative.co Podcast: Live Free Creative Book: More Than Enough Follow Spiritually Minded Mom Blog: spirituallymindedmom.com Instagram: @spirituallymindedmom Facebook: spirituallymindedmom Podcast: Spiritually Minded Mom on iTunes
