Hello World

To introduce myself, my name is Christopher, but I’ve been called Chip my entire life. I live in Steinbach, Manitoba with my wife, daughter and our two dogs. I’m currently in charge of the marketing department for Penner Building Center, one one the largest independently owned building supply companies in Canada, and I provide design consultation to small businesses in my spare time.

Why am I doing this?

Over the past few years I’ve been on a journey to lead a simple, more mindful life. As I’ve shared my experiences with friends and family, many have been curious about the methods and reasons behind the changes I was making. In an effort to organize my thoughts into one place, I’ve reconfigured my website into a blog to try and provide a consolidated resource for those interested in my findings and curiosities. Keep in mind, I’ve failed at blogging numerous times in the past, and this time may not be different.

I’m not a writer and I don’t pretend that I am one. My grammar is poor, I rely on spell check and I often catch myself rambling on about things. I will try my best to reduce my thoughts clearly and concisely as possible. As I’ve found from personal experience, what works for me won’t work for everyone and that’s OK, but hopefully I can be an encouragement to those seeking to live a more intentional life.
