More and more each day I've come to realize there's an intersection where our stories collide - a common thread weaving throughout which binds us all together. We don't just chance our way into another's story, we've been placed here...to go deep, care for people, struggle alongside and celebrate good! You see, we've been given grace & hope to extend it and through seasons of brokenness - light shines brightest! There is purpose behind the whole story. Our past doesn't define us, it's actually what connects us to the world.
"The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed." - Ernest Hemingway
Hi there, I'm Leigh - Nashville based writer, creator, dreamer and professional laugher. Hang around me enough and I might genuinely have you convinced you're the funniest person alive. In pursuit of the things that put wind in my sails - I love to travel and spend time with the people I love! You can most often find me eating Tex-Mex, running, chasing waterfalls, hanging from a ladder, talking to strangers or exploring Nashville one coffee shop at a time!
My hope is to bring beauty to the forefront and ultimately reflect something greater through creativity! The art of DESIGN is bringing something beautiful to life and WRITING has the power to challenge, inspire, encourage & transform.
"Creativity is the way you share your soul with the world. Your spiritual practice and creative practice are the way that you interact with every single person and even yourself. And without access to other people’s creativity, we are not okay as humans. The only unique contribution we will make in this world, will be born of creativity.” - BRENE BROWN
I've crossed paths with some unlikely individuals over the years. Through these relationships my perspective has been shaped...in the best way possible. Reclaim is about the second chance, seeing potential in the unlikely and pursuing hope in all circumstances. It's about seeing all people through the same lens...of empathy, compassion and love.
"I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university." - Albert Einstein
Reclaim is about rising above, seeing potential, economic opportunity, equality, social awareness, transformation and the call to freely give. From the places we shop to the causes we support...we can all be a part of supporting good in the world and empowering others. We've been threaded for good to make one grand contribution to the world.
Let’s take a minute to challenge our perspective…nothing is ever too far-gone to be Reclaimed. Will you join me in the quest to see good, pursue beauty and reclaim whole-hearted living? In doing so, we may begin to see hope, dignity and beauty transform lives.
Pull up a chair. I hope you'll stay a while!
