        Feeling the Yoko Ono quotes lately. Yoko always seemed to effortlessly hold something many of us spend a lifetime cultivating.  Confidence. Not in the arrogant overbearing out-loud kind of way, but in a quiet calm confidence that spoke through her work and exuded power and strength.   To me, that kind of confidence can only be  defined as trusting yourself. It's the ability to trust the pursuit of  what captivates you, trust your decisions, and trust your capabilities -  without needing approval or permission from the outside world. It’s a deep understanding that you are enough, and have enough, to make an impact.   We all have the right to be seen, heard, and to show up unapologetically as ourselves. That's true religion.

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.
