My Passion

When you feel stuck in an endless race, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed, under-performing and drained. I know how frustrating it is to repeat the same patterns, run into the same walls, fall from the same stumbling blocks. I know how exhausting it feels to fall short of your goals at the end of your day, week, year – even a decade.

If you’re tired of waking up feeling behind. If you’re fed-up from facing another day working your hardest without moving the needle, I have a message for you.


This blog started when I decided to stop measuring myself by how many items I could strike off my to-do list before the end of the day. I found myself mopping my kitchen floor at 11 p.m. – cursing my husband under my breath – and for what? I began seeking out better personal strategies for managing myself and finding meaning.

I believe in stopping the glorification of busy-ness to find real presence.

I believe in bringing your full human to work to find true purpose.

I believe in de-stressing and generating energy to find peace.

I don’t pretend to have everything figured out, and I need a lot of reminders to keep the main thing, the main thing. Sometimes the best way to find the next step forward is to remember that you’re not the only one feeling stuck.

I’m Lieve (rhymes with diva) and I started this blog because planning, goal-setting and follow through don’t come naturally to me. After literally pulling my hair out one-too-many times, I became officially obsessed with researching and sharing strategies for getting intentions out of my head and into action.  

If you were here with me now, we’d swap stories over a strong cup of coffee while walking along Lake Michigan. In the meantime I’m grateful you’re here on the blog. I can’t wait to learn more about you and hear how your story unfolds.
