No qualifications, no problem


Everything (and everyone) is but a speck in the ocean of time and life.

  • a challenging relationship that’s been testing your patience and sanity
  • a friendship that’s currently giving you grief
  • a lack of job options available to you
  • the fear of not having or owning enough
  • the fear of not being loved for being you
  • wondering late into the night if you need to be “better”, “thinner”, “hotter”, “smarter”…



Even if you get rejected, you’re enough.

You’re not what they want.

You’re not good enough. You’re too different.”



The 5-year milestone comes bearing some gifts in the form of lessons.
