when I look 10-years down the road, when I remove all the reasons, constraints, and excuses. when I dream & desire. this is what I see. one of the most beautiful tools I have been given while working for lululemon. is the art of creating a vision for my life.
through the work of Danielle LaPorte, specifically her book, ‘the fire starter sessions’ I have been moved to discover, ‘well, how do I want my life to feel.’ through my coaching sessions with Mary Beth LaRue I became clear.
the answer is: connection, freedom, adventure, love, self-expression & passion.
this is who I am.
this is what I see.
this is what I know to be true.
What do you see when you look 10-years down the road?
In 10-years I am 43 living on the coast with my beautiful family. I am surrounded by the colors, grey, blue, and brown, I am surrounded by the sound of giant laughs, giant imaginations, paws on the hardwood floor and these words said again and again ‘I love you.’
Music is always playing, our kitchen is where anyone feels like they can walk in and open the fridge, we rarely wear shoes, and we dance, all the time. Our backyard is a gathering for all the beautiful people in our lives, we spend perfect 70 degree nights back here with mason jars of red wine, cold IPA’s, fresh-squeezed meyer lemonade, and fresh everything from our garden. Soft overhead white-lights strung between the trees, flannels, voices and belly laughs that feel comfortable, surround me.
We make a living doing what we love, we work hard, we love hard, and life feels so good. I wake up every morning and reach for the person I love the most, and I say outloud ‘you are are the one I love the most’ our kids jump into bed with us every Sunday in their super hero pajamas, their big dreams, and messy hair. I listen with my open heart and gentle hands and let them know that their dreams are always worth saying out loud.
I am an innovator. A creator. A leader. A lover of progress. I am sought-after. I am grounded. I am grateful. I am so in love with life. And I don’t waste a single second wondering how I got so lucky. I receive without inhibition: what life gave back to me has me in awe, every single day.
