#15on15 – A Day In The Life...

Joy. It’s a driving force in my life. It’s the inner barometer that guides all of my decisions.

That and freedom. When it comes to work and career, freedom has always been necessary in order for me to fully feel any of the other good stuff. I’ve never been comfortable with working the 9-5. I've tried it. Many times. And somehow it just doesn’t make sense to my soul.

The authentic path isn't necessarily the easiest. I've struggled to get here. I fought for it long and hard. Mostly with myself. Which makes me even more grateful to stand here, in this place I've carved out for myself and say that I won. I've won a life that feels really, really good.  Yes, sometimes there is darkness, but mostly there is light.

Joy has led me to this light filled life. To this place I can 100% say I'm meant to be. Using my passions and creativity to be of service in the world. Building genuine connections with people and helping them live their most joyful, empowered and abundant lives. What an incredible gift.

In no particular order, the things that make me feel joyful are:

A person whose name rhymes with 'Mavid';) freedom, flowers, Lily, connection, compassion, coffee, creativity, naps, nature, sunshine, thunder storms, books, light, water, laughter (always lots of loud laughter), love–it's really why we're all here, and life–what a precious thing it is.

And this is a day in mine...
