It is an honour for me to share my experience utilising, implementing and living by the LYBL principles and philosophy.
I was first introduced to the systems and structures of LYBL in 2015, when I confessed to Michele that I felt like I was on the Merry-Go-Round of life.
My business was at a stand still, my marriage was stale, I was wearing so many hats I didn’t know if I was coming or going.Michele heard my plea, made time for me and came to my house with flip chart in hand. That day marked my first one-on-one session in life and business coaching.
We set an intention for the session and then spent the next three hours getting ‘real’. Michele has a way of creating space to allow people to look in the mirror and see things from a different perspective.
That session changed the course of my life, my business and the life of my family.
Michele believed in me, more than I believed in myself. She saw potential I didn’t see.
I wanted more.
The shape of my life changed, my business grew, my marriage deepened, my family bonded.
My love for LYBL evolved, I wanted not only to continue to grow and expand personally, I wanted to help others see their light, identify their seeds of potential and flourish.
During this time, I became a certified wellness coach, fitness coach, stretch specialist and Amazon best seller of “Truth Fully Heals”.
I am honoured to be one of the first LYBL Ambassadors, leading the wellness portion of the LYBL transformational 3-day houseboat events, workshops and one-on-one offerings.
LYBL has the tools and resources to change lives when a person is ready and open to look inward, take responsibility and ownership of where they are, and begin to reframe the voices in their head to shape their new truth, to live their best life.
I am a believer of people owning their own health which runs parallel with living their best life
.Living your best life isn’t about listing goals and action items.
To me, LYBL means to;
- Dig deep to reveal my hearts song or calling + stand in truth to who I am
- Speak truth
- Be true to my values and beliefs
- Believe and have faith
What does all this mean? How do I find these things? What does living my best life mean? What is my first step?
For me, it is to;
Acknowledge – the situation/feeling
Accept – the truth, don’t believe the lies
Ask – for help, forgiveness or forgive
Action – walk forward, take steps be led from within
And then… Repeat.
My favourite phrase of the LYBL manifesto is “say ‘yes’ to adventure”. I lead my life by saying yes to adventure, staying true to my innate voice, trusting my instinct and jumping in the deep end of life.
If I can leave one thought of encouragement it is to get off the bench and starting playing the game of life. You must roll the dice and keep moving forward.
Learn with all your Heart.
Believe, Trust, have Faith and Do.
Saying ‘yes’ to adventure has led me on my greatest learnings. I have faced challenges and many unknowns. Stepping into my un-comfort zone wakens my mind body and soul. It keeps me aware and awake.
For those of you who want to know more about my story, my life and how I stay true to myself you can read my book, Truth Fully Heals or enjoy my recent blog ‘Lucky Living’ when I share how I sold our family home and gave away all personal possessions, bought a sailboat in the Caribbean, got stuck at sea ‘country-less’ and unknowing of my future during the global pandemic as the world ports closed while home schooling my teenagers on a journey to migrate to the USA.

I am currently studying to become a Flexologist for Stretch Lab, Little Italy as well as creatively stretching myself to become as one with my ukulele, settle into a new country and gain a green card residency for my husband.
Living is grand, it is a privilege so live your best life as if you only had today to live.
