The Living Proof Mission: The Living Proof Blog is a people powered project paving the way for humanity to believe it’s possible to rise out of our limits and embrace our full potential. Our intention with this campaign is to create permission to be yourself in a world that often asks us to step outside and give more focus externally at the cost of our own presence. We've experienced first hand what happens to our mental health when we give our power away to stigmas and shoulds. And, that's why we created Sankalpa to offer wearable wellness tools and a community of support to internally resource and self validate. We see reclaiming our power as giving attention to what matters to us. And, presence is a great way to find these answers. Presence and self awareness aren't these lofty ideals. They are within your own capacity. Here you'll find examples of real people sharing how they find presence and what they care about. Dive in the mind and heart of what it means to be human...

A memory of feeling in your power
A moment I felt in power was remodeling my home. I was in control of everything during this process and it turned out to become my dream house. I realized I was really good at what I do! Also, giving birth to my daughter without any pain meds was definitely another time I felt in power.

Share a vulnerability that you are currently embracing about yourself
My leg. I had a bad accident the other year and it’s really impacted my life. It’s been challenging getting back to the place I once was, however I have to keep reminding myself to keep working at it!
When you see/hear the word "agency" what comes up for you?
Agency gives me a negative connotation. To me, it seems like someone looking for something that might not even be there.
What about choice?
I think about freedom.
If you could tell a young version of yourself one thing, what would that be?
Everything is going to be okay..
