Titles help describe "what we do" to those that don't know "who we are". Wife, Mom, Daughter, Friend, Realtor, Designer, Entrepreneur, Writer, Leader... Some titles we acquire and some we are born with. I was born with the gift of being able to connect with others & with a deep-seated passion for all aspects of design. Unfortunately, like many others, I chose a career based on security & opportunity for monetary growth instead of one based on fulfillment. In 2017, with love and support from family and friends, I got the chance to start over... At 32 years old I realized that I couldn't do it anymore. I couldn't keep pretending that l was ok... I couldn't keep living my life to please others even if it meant facing my worst fear; disappointing the people I loved the most. It was one of the hardest things I've ever done but it was also one of the best decisions I've ever made. My original "plan" didn't work out and I felt like such a failure for the first year after leaving my job. I now Know that failure is sometimes necessary for growth and it often leads us to something greater.  My "failure" taught me that I had to let go of perfectionism and my fear of rejection. I realized I had spent most of my life allowing fear to hold me back. Once I found the courage to face my fears I knew I was the only one that would ever have the power to hold me back!!  It felt like a fog had been lifted from my life!!  My mind was able to focus on what mattered instead of being caught up in a loop of negative thoughts. I began to realize how I could use my gifts & passions to create positive change in the world. Finding purpose through Love, connection, gratitude, mindfulness, giving back... "Live Simply, Golightly. Your key to a beautiful life..." I designed a plan that will significantly improve people's lives while also helping to save our planet. When your passion aligns with your purpose your life begins to flow...  I am so grateful for this beautiful life. I am grateful for the people that helped me grow by believing in me. Now I Know that I am capable of anything I put my mind to. I am a work in progress, an unfinished project, but I can See the Light. In design, when you can see the vision in your head begin to come to life it is as exciting as seeing it completed. I believe the same is true for personal growth. Our lives are an ongoing design project. We must continue to update, renovate, & redesign so that our Vision can come to Life. The Plan isn't designed to change who we are, we should embrace the good, use it as our foundation, and build upon it. We need to let go of outdated ideas that no longer serve our purpose and replace them with new ones that do. The Plan is designed to help us Realize that we all have the potential to become anything we put our minds to and the only limits we have are the ones we place upon ourselves...
