They say you tend to take for granted that the things that come easily to you, come as easily to everyone else – but this is not often the case.
A little while ago, I realised I had a lot to share about what it means to live with intention, to do things differently from what’s always been done, and to really live a life that reflects your deepest truth.
These things come easily to me but I’ve come to see that they don’t necessarily come easily to others.
In 2014, it became very clear to me that my life was making me miserable. I’d done everything ‘right’ – got a degree, got a good job, found a good man, got a car, house, wardrobe… but in the small hours of the night I found myself sobbing uncontrollably because something was missing – something I couldn’t figure out.
By starting a powerful daily journaling practice, I connected the dots and found the missing pieces. I confronted myself on the page and connected with my inner wisdom, remembered what really mattered to me, and found the courage to change my life.
I slowly started to live a more intentional life by questioning everything: my job, my house, my relationships, my hobbies. I started to express my true self, live guided by a sense of purpose, and stop merely surviving.
I want to share everything I’ve learned about how to live a brave intentional life, so I’m writing a book about it.
I want to provide a practical road-map to help you live with intention: to get clear on what’s most important to you (it’s probably not what you think!), to dare to think differently from everyone else and stop worrying about what others will think, and to take brave steps towards living a life that reflects your deepest truth.
The book will share clear and actionable steps, examples from my own intentional living journey, and journaling prompts to help you dig deep and excavate your own inner wisdom.
In this book I’ll teach you how to:
- Connect with your soul
- Know and celebrate your uniqueness
- Think for yourself
- Connect with your deeper purpose and create a vision for your life
- Craft your own definition of enough
- Leave the ‘tribe’
- Simplify your life and align with what matters
- Be careful with what you allow into your life
- Create more often and consume less
- Find your courage and trust the process
