What is Your Life’s Purpose?

What is your Life's Purpose?

Several years ago I was listening to Tony Robbins online inspiring people to discover their “life’s purpose”.  I  decided at the time that mine was to create beautiful things (whether it is a home interior, piece of jewelry or stained glass, a piece of music or a dance) and share it with others to give them (and me) joy.

What is your Life's Purpose?

That was my inspiration in starting Northern Lights Home Staging and Design i 2014. For those of you who do not know me, I am also an artist (stained glass, jewelry, alcohol ink, fractal art), musician and dancer. All these things give me joy, and I hope I can pass a little bit of that on to you.

What is your Life's Purpose?

When I create a beautiful space for you, whether it is to sell your home or to live in it, I  want you to say “Wow!!!” and feel some of the magic you might experience if you saw northern lights. That is my goal and how Northern Lights Home Staging and Design got it’s name.

At the time, I silently thanked Tony Robbins for helping me put into words what I knew to be true about myself.


Now,  five years later, I am looking back and wondering, is this still my life’s purpose?

What is your Life's Purpose?

The answer is YES!

And that makes me happy, because it makes me feel as if I am aligned with my true purpose, what I am meant to do. Are you? One of my favorite quotes is from another dancer and I truly believe this.

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and will be lost.”

Martha Graham

So, while  I still believe my life’s purpose is to create beautiful things, I realize that the outward beauty has more depth and layers than it used to. Whether it is in one of my Interior designs, pieces of art or a dance, the magic comes from a beautiful intersection of art, science and energy that goes into each creation. The more I learn about each aspect and grow as an artist, the more interesting and beautiful my creations become. To me anyways:) And hopefully to you!

Create Beauty in your home

I would like to show you how to create beauty in your home by aligning art, science and energy. An Aligned Design consultation to create a holistic plan is a great first step to map out your journey to a perfect space.

  1. An Aligned Design is so fitting – it describes exactly what (and how) you can assist your clients.

    I can see why Martha’s quote is your favourite!

    1. Thank’s so much! That makes me very happy that you think so. Trying to find the clearest way to describe what we do can be hard and I am glad it is working.

  2. I love that quote from Martha Graham! We each have a contribution to make to this world and it is so sad when we miss the opportunity!

    1. I know, I think fear holds many people back from making their unique contributions. Some time’s we just need to get our of our own way!
