When I worked for a commercial architecture and civil engineering firm, I learned that architecture is very intentional.
As the architect, you have to consider the whole experience of all the types of people who will occupy the space. This includes what they see when they walk in, how they flow through the rooms, where the entrances and exits are, and so on.
It requires a lot of up front thinking because once you start pouring the foundation, framing and putting up walls, it is a whole lot harder to change things.
Lucky for us humans, as architects of our lives, we get opportunities to re-design whenever we want. Sure, sometimes it feels like change is the equivalent of demolishing a perfectly fine building, but what if your intention is to plant a new forest on that land?
Haven’t ever architect-ed your life before? Don’t worry – that funny feeling is normal. This isn’t something that they teach us in school.
I’m excited to offer you the opportunity to be the architect of your life this Saturday, January 23rd, with Your Word, Your Year, a class where soulful moms get back in touch with their dreams and the things that move them.
January is the perfect time to pour a new foundation for the year.
With intention and a dash of magic, set forth a new design for your 2021. No, it’s not too late.

A daily practice challenges the person who creates on “inspiration.” We have to mother everyday, and ultimately, it is the daily grind that gives us perspective, clarity and the “high’s” of motherhood. I am exploring if the same happens when I write everyday on the topics that normally light me up – motherhood, self-development, healing and creating.
