Love every piece of yourself, the dark and the light.    This  has been a big theme for me lately. I’ve opened up certain  relationships in my life again (both in my family and romantically) and  realized that undoubtedly, meaningful relationships cause you to see  yourself for who you really are. All of those pieces.   Each  relationship is an opportunity to learn and grow. What we see in the  other person, is what we see in ourselves. You can choose to see their  darkness or their light, either way you’ll find what you’re looking for.  And the same is always true for yourself.    So instead of self  care Sunday, I’m working on self love Sunday today - recognizing I have  some really great qualities, and some shit that could really use some  work. But I’m accepting all of it as who I am, and learning to love the  process.

Life by Design was born out of a need for my own self-healing after decades of unresolved illness. It wasn’t until finding the courage to look within that I discovered it was my own belief system holding me back from experiencing a truly thriving life. We all have access to that thriving life. We just need to rediscover our power and ignite the healing-self. Only then can we unapologetically live a life by our own design.
