“Everybody has a little bit of the sun and moon in them. Everybody has a little bit of man, woman, and animal in them. Darks and lights in them. Everyone is part of a connected cosmic system. Part earth and sea, wind and fire, with some salt and dust swimming in them. We have a universe within ourselves that mimics the universe outside. None of us are just black or white, or never wrong and always right. No one. No one exists without polarities. Everybody has good and bad forces working with them, against them, and within them.” - Suzy Kassem   I haven’t created much space to write this week but this artwork brought my fingertips briefly back to the keys (writing with ink used to be so much more romantic). There are a vast many things I do not know, cognitively speaking. But intrinsically, I know this much; we are all deeply woven together.  The thoughts you have, the energy you cultivate, and the choices you make are all impacting the world as a whole. Every micro movement is creating the macro world.  So start with the little shifts. Change the universe you live in, one thought and one tiny gesture at a time. Build on each step. Let it ripple outward into your relationships, culture, and society.  We, as the individual, collectively create our culture. Our society. Our world; and ultimately our universe. Let’s make sure it’s the one we’ve envisioned. ✨

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.
