Deconstruct The Yuck - A Year of Monthly Challenges in Search of an Authentic Life
Deconstruct the Yuck is about cultivating an authentic, balanced life out of the 'yucks' around us. ‘Yuck’ is the stuff that bogs us down and gets in the way of the life we truly want, and occasionally even our own values. It is personal, social and societal. 'Yuck' focuses on the 'shoulds' in life and dismisses the simplicity that brings joy.
Our 'deconstruct' process consists of a daily blog paired with the goal of doing a year of Monthly Challenges. The hope is that through trying new actions of change and writing our daily reflections, we will rediscover our authentic selves. We also hope to inspire others to find some sort of peace amid the 'yuck.'
