start here

Welcome to my internet home. You may have landed here because you signed up for The HOPE Map. You may have found your way here because you’re looking for a more compassionate, joyful, and purposeful way to move through your imperfect & beautiful life. I’m happy you’re here.

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 into 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 safe 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 (with joy and on purpose) to your imperfect & beautiful life.

“Finding you and your courses have been life-giving for me. I feel like it is a debt I will never be able to repay.” —Roxanne R

The ALIP Resource Library (Free Gifts for You!)

I offer resources I think will be useful for you, free and ready to download. I periodically change them up. Go here to access the Resource Library. You will also receive a 50% off coupon code for a mini-course/course bundle or purposeful printable pack and access to my Live on Purpose FB Group.

Light For Your Path: Topical Resource Pages

I’ve created 7 Topical Resource Pages to guide you in showing up fully to life in every season. Each page includes 10 relevant blog posts, two videos or interviews for supplemental learning, and a couple of resources I’ve made to support you in going deeper into the work of becoming your healthiest self and building a life of meaning and joy. Access the ALIP Topical Resource Pages here.

Favourite Resource Recommendations

On this page, I offer a carefully curated collection of favourite resource recommendations in a handful of different categories to help you show up fully to your imperfect and beautiful life (+ slow business!) in every season. I change things up periodically to reflect what I’m loving and using in my own life and work. Check out this page.

“Years ago 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!”       —Sandra Kerr-Porcari

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. Learn more or join here.

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 – so that 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 imperfect 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, equity and the beauty of diversity, self-compassion, and finding our way through child 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. Educational coaching videos and a warm and welcoming space to hang out and forge relationships with other growth-minded and kind people make this a growth-minded and positive space to spend time. One day/week the focus is for non-hustlers, strong introverts, HSP’s, folks who require ample breathing room and space to putter and ponder and who are building a #slowbusinessonpurpose.

Instagram: Inspiring quotes, thoughts & images from daily life, space to play with words, question ideas, and explore slow/purposeful/joyful living, and personal growth. (also here at Rebranding Middle Age on IG)

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!”  —Holly M.
