For the brave and weary sojourner.  I will help you remember your way to freedom.

I’m happy you found your way here. xo

You’re In The Right Place If…

You are in the right place if you are looking for hope & practical encouragement to help you get clear on what “enough” looks, sounds, and feels like for your life or business in this season of life.

You are in the right place if you want to craft a slower, simpler life. One that is intentional and mindful and has lots of breathing room for meaningful connection and savouring the small gifts of today.

You are in the right place if you’re a non-hustler, HSP, you or a family member live with chronic physical or mental illness or you tend to feel like you don’t “fit” well in this noisy, busy world.

You are in the right place if you’re curious about seasonal living: showing up to life in a way that respects natural rhythms, fertile and fallow times, and honours your unique wiring.

You are definitely in the right place if you are a wrestler, a questioner, one who struggles and desires a brave space to hang out and be reminded that you are not alone and that you matter.

You are in the right place if you want to live mind-body-spirit healthy but you opt-out of fads and care more about loving yourself well than following the crowd.

And you are absolutely in the right place if you are ready to quiet the noise of perfectionism, comparison, and fear, and show up fully to your imperfect & beautiful life, in every season.

Below I’ve offered you a brief overview of my work, some resources I’ve created for you, and how we can stay connected.

The Brave & Beautiful Membership Community

This is my favourite place to hang out with some of the brave and beautiful humans who have found their way to my work. The B&B is currently a small group of women in the “messy middle of life” seeking ongoing support and opportunity to deepen wisdom and grow together in a gentle and growth-minded environment. Doors open three times a year. Learn more or register here and if you want to be first to learn when space opens up, sign up for The HOPE Map (my weekly email).

The ALIP Shop

Mini-Courses, Mindfulness Journals, Purposeful Printables and more to help you quiet the noise of comparison, perfectionism, or fear and live an unshackled life of purpose, wholeness, and joy. Click here to visit the ALIP Shop.

The ALIP Resource Library (Free Gifts for You!)

I offer a collection of free resources, ready to download, to my email subscribers. I periodically change them up. Go here to access the Resource Library.

Light For The Path: Topical Resource Pages

7 Topical Resource Pages to support you in showing up fully to life in every season. Each page includes blog posts, videos/interviews, and a couple of other resources to support you in going deeper into the work of becoming your healthiest self and building your life imperfectly – on purpose. Access the ALIP Topical Resource Pages here.

Favourite Resource Recommendations

A thoughtfully curated collection of resource recommendations in a handful of different categories for doing life and slow business – on purpose. I change things up periodically to reflect what I’m loving and using in my own life and work. Check out this page.

Finding you and your work has been life-giving for me. It feels like a debt I’ll never be able to repay.

Who Am I?

Learn about my story here – meet Krista O’Reilly-Davi-Digui

Learn how I can help you handcraft an emotional & cognitive path forward – a HOPEMAP – for your life or business that allows you to live rooted, brave, and imperfectly on purpose.

I gained great courage from a quote I heard regarding the power of telling our truths and being authentic as a catalyst for others to do the same. Krista O’Reilly-Davi-Digui is a perfect example of just how true this is. Her courage in telling her truth, no matter how messy, has been an inspiration to me for almost a decade. And, in her Brave & Beautiful Membership community, she has provided a safe space where others can follow her lead in the company of like-minded women. Truly a gift!

More Ways to Gather & Grow Together

The heart of my work is A Life in Progress – but under this umbrella, I choose to run different social pages that speak to certain facets of life and work; you can choose the one or two that MOST serve you in this season.

Facebook – A life in Progress: Hope and practical encouragement to help you show up fully to your messy and beautiful life in every season.

Facebook – Rebranding Middle Age: Life wisdom, encouragement, and practical tips from a holistic perspective for walking through midlife with curiosity & JOY.

Facebook – Holding Your Breath: On grief, mental health, the beauty of diversity, self-compassion, and finding our way through loss.

Closed Facebook Group: Live on Purpose: This group is an offshoot of my work as a Holistic Health & Joyful Living Educator – specifically my Voice & Vision Consulting programs. The group offers regular encouragement and education related to mind-body wellness and living a compassionate and purposeful life, occasional book clubs or challenges, and a warm and welcoming space to hang out and forge relationships with other growth-minded and kind people.

Instagram: Inspiring quotes, thoughts & images from daily life, space to play with words, question ideas, and explore slow/purposeful/joyful living, and personal growth. (I also have a page called Rebranding Middle Age on IG but I’m not active there in this season.)

YouTube: Since fall 2019 I started uploading my interviews with Brave & Beautiful Women here so that members of my community who opt out of social media can still enjoy them (you can also find my interviews on Facebook).

The O’DaviDesign Art Scholarship

After my son died, I chose to create two art scholarships in his name – this is one way I can honour the fuller, beautiful truth of who he was and help remove shame and stigma around living with mental illness or simply being fully human in a messy world. Donate, Apply, or Learn More Here.

I’ve been reading your writing for a long time and want you to know your thoughtfulness and candour are always a huge help to me. You help me remember that there is no guarantee that things are going to go smoothly. There is just a need to try again the next day. Thank you for sharing your struggles and triumphs so openly. Your insight and perspective are greatly appreciated. Thank you!

You're imperfect. Life is messy. Show up anyway. I'll help you figure out how.
