I’m Mychele, the creative, and sometimes crazy, force behind this blog! I believe that life is a journey of creativity, love, chaos, and amazingness. I believe that we are all powerful creators in designing our life journey in a way that makes our hearts sing and our souls bliss out! I’m on a mission to create a passion filled, colorful life where dreams come true for me and YOU! Will you join me in this adventure?
My life has been full of twists and turns. As so many of us have been known to say, “This is NOT where I thought my life was going to go!” Sometimes said with immense sadness or frustration, other times with complete awe and joy at the incredible surprises life has a habit of bestowing upon us! I found myself saying this exact phrase shortly after my first daughter was born. Then again after the second. And now, as they are both in school, growing into amazing, intelligent, and beautiful young people I find myself having this thought yet again. The difference is this time I’m ready to take action to build the life of my dreams. My CURRENT dreams! Life changes and so do dreams. I’m shedding the old to make room for some new, bright, shiny dreams to emerge!
My BIG dream is to encourage other women to do the same. Imagine a world in which we choose joy. We choose to LIVE outrageous dreams. We choose to forge our OWN paths. Imagine the world coming alive with so much LOVE of LIFE! I do every day and it’s delicious! As I share my thoughts, dreams, hopes, and desires throughout this blog I hope you will too!
If you’re ready to take the reigns of your destiny to make your life totally rock the way you want it to rock then welcome! And if you’re thinking that there must be more to life, that “This is NOT where I thought my life was going to go!” then welcome to you too! This blog is an adventure through life- kids, parenting, arts and crafts, life skills, fitness, sparkling chaos, and so much more. As I share my escapades navigating through my own dreams I hope that you will find inspiration and support to travel your own path!
