        "Find your fire and do not be afraid to burn bridges that deserve to fall." - r.h. sin  Missed  my full moon circle last night so I decided to hold my own little ceremony and write out my reflections and intentions - and post it to Instagram of course.  Coming full circle from the last full  moon, September was all about remodeling. Shedding old wounds. Leaving  the comfort level of known territory and moving into the unknown. With  that movement comes a wealth of self-doubt, uncertainty, and discomfort to the mind and body. But those feelings are just fuel for what's on the  other side - expansion.  Remodeling, redesigning, and  restructuring anything in our lives; including the physical world of our  bodies, homes, careers, locations, and routines along with the inner  workings of our minds, emotions, and behaviors, requires a high tolerance to the temporary chaos that ensues. We are complex beings, and when you start taking shit apart, it gets messy.  Most of us, including myself, don't like messy. Because messy means loss of control. But with the focus of expansion in mind, and the building materials we have at our disposal to achieve it, messy can be a beautiful thing.  My biggest lesson came in learning to use all of those building materials. I thought I could just tear down the walls and build bridges. But we still need walls. It's just a matter of the right walls. We can choose  to strengthen the parts that are working for us, eliminate walls that  aren't, and create new walls (or burn bridges) to keep us from returning to old, familiar ways of being. With that solid foundation, we can build new bridges to new ways of doing things. New connections. New possibilities.  New life. 🔥🌹

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.
