I will start on Monday. After my travels, I will change my life. Next year is my year. I will quit when I turn 30. When I find a new job, I will pull my s*** together.

You do not need a special date or time or month or year. You are worthy of sparkle right now. If you are looking to make any changes in your life, you can start in this moment. Change happens slowly and steadily, and by simply telling yourself that change is possible right now, you are beginning.
Are you ready to sparkle today? No contingency plans, no special dates, no new month, new week, new year. You are worthy of sparkle in this moment. Not sure where to begin? It is the perfect time to take a step home to yourself. Let’s connect and…
