Stepping Forward ~ Pre-view to Official HHLLaunch

Welcome to the launch, new look and direction of High Heeled Life! I'm beyond excited to be sharing this turning point in my life with all of you. After all, many of you have been reading along since the beginning, March 2010.

A little look at how it all began:
Early readers will recall the blog was AttitudeIVLife (said as -  attitude for life) and I started writing under the pen name Sophia (honouring my grandmother and her strength). Though I now have a dedicated HighHeeledLife.com url.  it is forward to Blogger url, which still remains attitudeIVLife.blogspot . Over a few weeks I realized  that Falling Off a High Heeled Life (FOAHHL), better described what I was feeling/living as I shared my story about life after a traumatic accident.And had Jen at Posh Palm designs custom design a shoe logo that reflected how I was feeling FOAHHL.   Then something amazing happened ~ as 2011 came to a close I was still not feeling like me, but "Falling" no longer really applied. The next year I started to share more about my life and living in the country. This is when I started to realize that I was still living a High Heeled Life it just looked a little (ok ... at times a lot) different. Tired of just surviving - I wanted to start THRIVING, I spent the better part of 2012 visualizing how I wanted my life to be; turning to alternative healing methods and trying to find balance (mind*body*spirit). By the end of 2012 things started to happen, I was creating my new version of a High Heeled Life.


New logo: With the help of Sandy M. the HHL logo was redesigned. The socialite  falling off her High Heeled Life has been replaced with butterflies. Butterflies symbolize change ~  Change and transformation are inevitable for us all (whether expected and unexpected - joyous and not so joyous) we need to remember - change no matter how it presents itself is an opportunity to grow. I chose for the butterflies to be white (sparkly diamonds) because butterflies are also closely tied to the idea of spirit and souls, used in many religions and cultures. For me the butterfly represents both re-birth and naturalness. The shoe remains red - the colour red has strong symbolism of life and vitality and is associated with energy, excitement, strength and passion.

Living my journey and embracing the changes in my life, have set me on a path of creating balance in my life and truly living a High Heeled Life.

Remember Living a High Heeled Life is not about excess. It's about being selective and realizing excess does not increase your quality of life. Your quality of life comes from acheiving balance and peace within your self (mind, body and spirit). Once you have peace and balance you are able to create and live your own version of a High Heeled Life
