I’m grateful you have come.

One of my favorite quotes of all time is: “The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.” – M. Scott Peck

And this photo, taken on Stearn’s Wharf in Santa Barbara, captures its essence.


Stepping outside of our comfort zone is, by definition, well… uncomfortable. To take such a leap of faith can require not only strength and courage, but also planning, commitment, and fearlessness (with a dash of chutzpah, as my grandmother would say).

Through this website, I hope to inspire and empower you to take your first (or second, third, one hundredth …) step towards leading a happier, healthier, saner life. Whether you have come to read my blog musings, find a recipe for food or DIY self-care products, or learn more about aloe (aka “The Plant of Immortality”), I hope you will find something you like.

Thank you for stopping by.
