The quiet elegance of a curated life.
What do you envision when you think of your dream life? How are you feeling in this dream life?
I close my eyes and I see a fresh, white, airy home, filled with love, peace and laughter. And how do I feel in it? Free, yet anchored. Calm, yet buzzing with life.
That's how I envision my dream life, the dream me.
I started 2019 wanting to truly live and to rediscover who I am. I was tired of the old, lifeless, sitting-duck, hermit me. And the feeling of being... What's the word... STAGNANT. I haven't always been like this. I wanted the old me and my old life back. The good, old days.
Until I came across this quote. It totally changed the ball game for me.
"Life is not about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself."
- George Bernard Shaw -
This quote literally left me in a daze for a while.
Then excitement crept in.
And finally... HOPE.
Hope because I instantly recognized that embracing this mindset guarantees change. It gives the autonomy back to me. Because the power to create change is in my hands, I can take action right now. I don't have to passively wait for something good to happen to me while I search for who I am and what I am meant to do. Change can start as soon as (or as late... heard of procrastination?) I want. It is up to ME.
So here I am. On this journey to CREATE the the person I want to be and the life I dream of living. And the result I hope to see?

As for the shop? (Haha... Almost forgot about that!) I plan to fill it with purposefully curated items that can help us with this process. And it doesn't hurt for them to be gorgeous at the same time. Beautifully functional!
So don't be shy. Hop on and come on this adventure with me!
