So much talent exists in this world. Far more then we will ever get to experience in a single lifetime.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Far more then we would get to experience in several lifetimes. We hope that whomever you are, wherever you are... you are letting your gifts shine.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And right now, we are going to admire this beautiful image and fruit bowls. By @walk_in_the_park_⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Love is a conscious choice. Every single moment, of every single day we have the power to choose love.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let's all be much more mindful of our choices. And while yes, certainly on this day while love is top-of-mind! But also every other day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We are moving into our sixth season and we have been so fortunate to work with some amazing humans and artists.
Including @christinaeveartist who has been a part of this since the beginning.
Thank you Christina. Thank you to everyone else who has continued to support us and believe in this mission!
You make up our community. And you are the ones who move us to keep at it.

Shadow play by @valeria.vasi
For so long product photography has been all about bright white and clean. And while, yes there is a time and place for that and it's helpful as a consumer to see the product in such a way. We are digging all the shadows popping up lately on our feed! More please!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We are for the people who are obsessed with their cause and mission. We are for the people who get so lost in their work that they come to and realize they haven't even looked at Instagram in hours. We are for the people that can look up at the sky and count 10,000 different colors.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are for the makers and artists who do what they do, because it's as vital as breathing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We aren't big fans of the word balance over here at HMPU. That adds so much undue pressure to never let the scales tip in favor of one thing or another.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Life (and your body) will tell you what it needs. If you listen.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What if instead we focus on bringing all areas of our life into harmony so they work together beautifully⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We ended 2018 with a conscious decision to remove ourselves and untether from the digital world—⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Admittedly, we lingered in that private space of afternoons spent idly reading, staring at the night sky, and finding white space longer than initially intended. But there is zero guilt about that. And that’s because for the first time, in a long time, we both felt.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We felt joy, laughter, release. We got in touch with friends. We communed with nature. We drank wine and laughed until our sides hurt. We sat in our bodies and listened to what our inner-self was craving.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Productivity is not a measure of self-worth. We choose to love ourselves and honor ourselves by listening to what we want and need, and refusing to do things out of obligation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We choose considered and intentional action. And it’s from that place we will continue to serve this community in 2019.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We hope that you’ll join us. And most importantly we hope that you do more of what brings you joy.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The rewards of running your own business are many. And so are the beliefs and misconceptions. Including this mentality that without the hustle, you will have no business.
Here at HMPU, that just don’t fly with us.
We believe in conscious choices. We believe in mindfulness. We believe in intentionality. We believe in purposeful action. We believe in space.
So may we suggest an alternative frame of mind to adopt this holiday season
Step away from your email. Step away from social media. Step away from your business.
Choose to reconnect with your family, friends, and loved ones. Choose to sit down to the dinner table this season and savor every bite. Choose to take in the conversation and really listen, without your business to-do list running on repeat in the back of your mind. Choose to give yourself whitespace.
It's exactly what we will be doing this season. And we invite you to do the same.
We look forward to seeing all of you in the new year after a restful and celebratory holiday.
