Yesterday we watched an entire movie, something we haven't done since Jackie's cast came off. And it was a fairly new one (the Incredibles 2) so it was enlightening to see the way characters are created to represent “the times.”
I thought the new characters had more presence and less words. I know, a lot of analysis for an entertaining kids movie, but it's hard not to notice when it's so on point with what it can feel like in the real world; a heightened importance of how things appear, without a corresponding expectations of meaningful value.
I'm grateful that we tend to be aligned with these feelings because it means we don't take our time together for granted. And that's all part of this low waste lifestyle—time is resource to use or to waste.
One of the greatest strengths of our relationship is our practice of working together; we pass ideas and thoughts back and forth until they've formed into something that neither of us may have been able to get to alone; we challenge our reasons and actions, continuously coming back to our values and goals; we grow with flexibility and adapt to new information and experiences. It's in our downtime that we use the mental space to let thoughts and ideas run loose.
We've heard the expressions “don't mix business with pleasure” as well as “don't work with family members.”
I imagine the outcome will land on either end of the spectrum and we're two of the lucky ones! Collaboration suits us. Enjoying our downtime conversations (now they're more like car-time conversations), and scheduling solid work hours at @getcroissant co-working spaces gives us a sense of balance even when we’re living in this intersection of blurred lines.
