Who do you admire?

Dear Joys…I hope this post is a great reminder that, despite all the fearmongering, there are so many ways to lift our vibration. Joy, happiness and love is the greatest rebellion.

One of the other people who I admire is photographer Carla Coulson. Her book, Italian Joy sparked delight. So much so that when she published her photography workshop in Puglia, Italy I jumped at the chance. And now inspired by her Wall of Love photographic prints I’m delighted to be offering my own series of love-inspired fine art prints. I know your walls (home and office) will love these gorgeous vibes. DM to learn more

Who do you admire that works and lives with HEALTHY self-love regardless of the views or opinions of others? Right off the bat, I’m going to say music legend Eric Clapton for his rebellious courage in speaking out about vaccines and mandates, anxiety and suicide. And for his great song, written by Van Morrison, “It’s got to stop”

And also one of my muses, Coco Chanel, who suffered such pain and loss throughout her life and still showed up for beauty.

How about you? Who do you admire? Why? How could they inspire you to have the courage and boldness to chase your dreams? 

Say YES to happiness NOW! It’s never too late to follow your joy and to live a life you love.

“This book is indeed like a shot of espresso… a brilliant inspiring resource that you can pick up when you need some encouragement to keep you moving forward on your journey to success!”

Be inspired by Coco’s formula for success—available as a paperback, hardback and eBook.
