My number one belief is that our thoughts, choices, and actions create our lives.
So I’ve dedicated myself to making choices, thinking thoughts, and taking actions that feel good.
But that wasn’t always the case.
I used to be a total neasayer. I thought wonderful things happened to other people, but not to me. I lived with crippling depression and stayed mired in "shoulds" instead of living the life I really wanted.
I loved the idea of traveling, writing for a living and living a stylish life full of exciting people. I was always drawn to books about these kinds of characters and I admired friends who lived their lives like this. But these seemed like things that were possible for other people. Not for me.
But when I discovered existentialist philosophy and began to delve into the world of personal development, my whole world began to open up. I've spent the past five years devouring self-help books, attending workshops, and experimenting with personal development techniques. I've learned practical tools for cultivating self-love, overcoming resistance, dragging an impossible seeming dream into reality, and infusing my everyday life with magic.
Since then I've edited magazines, traveled the world, quit my job to work as a freelance writer, moved across the globe, and started my own business. In short, I've become an expert dream wrangler.
Almost on a whim, I moved to London, England from Canada in October 2013 - it sounded like a fun adventure. I only intended to stay here for a year but I ended up meeting the love of my life and getting married. Now we live together with our cat Hagrid in a converted East London church.
First and foremost, I’m a storyteller. This website is a home for my writing and podcast. I currently support myself by working as a virtual assistant, and through the support of my incredible patrons on Patreon.
I don't want to offer advice or how-tos; I want to share the imperfect mess of being human by sharing my story and the stories of others. You can take from it what you will. Mostly, I hope you take from it that you're not alone.
