        This Labor Day weekend marks 1 year from my touchdown in Los Angeles. When those wheels grabbed the concrete at LAX I set an intention for this adventure to commit. To myself, to serving all of  you, and to my dreams. I talked about it on Instagram, journaled about it, and even engraved it on a bracelet. What I didn't realize, is I had just placed a large order.  To digest that order, I processed the best way I know how, by writing about it. Then I sat on it for days, afraid to externalize how it's unfolded for me.   It's the  longest, rawest, truest blog post I've ever written, and honestly I don't expect that anyone even reads it (It's a 17 min read according to Medium, so yea 😬) because to find the courage to send it out into the world I had to remind myself I'm doing this for me.  And in  doing so, I hope I can continue to encourage you to show up in your own life. It's the only way we learn from each other - leading by example. Doing the work and staying true to what's real for us, regardless of how messy and imperfect it may look. It's the only way to create a beautiful life by your own design.  If you're so inclined;  Commitment Courage . 🌹

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.
