Your story is yours,
so don’t let the naysayers
write your life for you.


Every day and all around us there are opinions about how we “should be”. It can be extremely crippling, when we buy into it. The greatest gift we can give another person when we spend time with them is to celebrate who they ARE, rather than focusing on what they are not. And the greatest gift we can give ourselves is to do the same.

If you’re not living the life you want, start right now. It is your precious life. And at the end of it, no matter how many hours and days and years you are given, I guarantee it will feel like it wasn’t enough. Who would know better than you, how to live out your time?

The hour glass is ticking…
