It kinda made me fearless in a lot of ways. Focusing on the future was my coping mechanism for dealing with all the sad and scary thoughts about moving.
And it might explain why I have ants in my pants about forging ahead and finding my place in the world.
One thing’s for sure, I’m a firm believer in following your heart’s desires. Which is how I’ve ended up going down a rebel path of art-making and fashion.
So think of me as a rebel on a mission to make the world better, one human at a time. Starting with myself.
And I just happen to be an artist, a storyteller, and a fashion misfit. So there ya go.

The life you want wants you.
Right about the time I turned fifty, i came across a quote that blew my mind. It said, The life you want wants you.
I’ve always tried to listen to my heart when making decisions, but this was different. It went beyond this idea of finding your own way. It got me to thinking about my desires as messages from my future self.
Because the goal of finding your own way is ease. Not struggle. And yet, it’s usually way harder to forge your own path. Unless, of course, you begin identifying with your future self.
Feeling fab starts with a desire and manifests in your behavior to look as fab as you feel.
Focusing on your future you makes becoming her so much easier. She’s your version of fabulous. And she’s planted those desires inside you so that you can bloom into her. If we follow our desires, we’ll always be thriving. If we can start thinking like her now, we can adjust our behavior to support us. Like creating habits and rituals hat make us happy because no matter how different our individual desires may be, ultimately what we’re all after is more ease and joy in our lives.
The only thing that can get in our way is feeling undeserving of what we desire.
That’s the obstacle we’re all trying to get over, isn’t it? We’re all dealing with our own resistance to feeling worthy of what we desire.
So let me be the one to remind you that:
Not only are you already worthy of all you desire, but your sole purpose here is to dream and desire. Because the act of dreaming and desiring is how we expand. And expansion is what we feel and do when we love being alive.
I'm Alex, your Twinki-Winki little-miss-sunshine.
