If there is one thing I have learned over the years, it’s that we are more alike than we are different. We each have our own story.

Mine includes growing up in the Chicago suburbs and earning a degree with honors from the University of Michigan, Then, life took off with a succession of professional and personal experiences as I followed my heart from one thing to the next, much like a hummingbird drinks from one bloom to the next.

I’ve been a top saleswoman in advertising, climbed the corporate ladder after years of resisting that life, pursued my greatest desire (my IT) of becoming an archaeologist, realized another IT of owning my own business (4 yoga studios), traveled as much as I could and established myself in cities overseas and in the States. I can tell you unequivocally that I have loved my life.

That doesn’t mean I haven’t suffered. I’ve been through dead-end jobs, periods of debilitating depression, divorce, financial loss and mistakes of my own making. Somehow I still wound up standing, just like so many of you who are survivors in your own right. The sum of my life’s experiences adds up to Wabi Sabi, my IT of sharing what I know with other women so they can realize the life of their dreams. We are all precious Souls sharing a human experience. We are here for a purpose. We're here to find and live IT.

about

The Japanese philosophy of Wabi Sabi loosely translates to “flawed but beautiful.” It honors the beauty in all that is less than perfect. This begs the question of what is perfect? Isn’t a brewing storm as magnificent as a clear, sunny day? Or a worn and scratched dresser perhaps more meaningful than a factory-fresh furnishing? 

Instead of dismissing what might be deemed as imperfect, Wabi Sabi finds beauty and acceptance in the flaws. It’s in the perceived flaws that uniqueness resides. Doesn’t it bring you a sense of peace — of permission even — to just be yourself? Wabi Sabi: we are all perfectly imperfect.
