Sometimes that’s a gorgeous top paired with the perfect necklace.
Sometimes that’s the perfect gift to give a girlfriend.
Sometimes that's an inspirational phrase to make you stand taller or fall on the floor laughing.
Always, that’s a little something to make you feel lighter and brighter.
So, just who the heck am I?
Okay. Okay. Let's get to know each other a little better. My name is Kara Gorski and Saylor Design Co is my baby. Yep, that's me right down there.
Many years ago, I was living the perfect life. (Okay, I am still living a pretty perfect and extremely blessed life, but just hang in there with this story.)
I had an awesome, growing career as an economist (OMG! I have a Ph.D. in economics. Who does that?). I had two little boys at home who were 15 months and 3 years old at the time, and an amazing husband who was a budding entrepreneur. I worked all the time to try to balance my home, my office and my life’s greatest loves.
It all looked amazing on Facebook. Except that it wasn’t. Because, I was miserable.
I had totally lost myself. I could not keep up with all the demands on my time and my giant to do list at home and at work. I felt like I was always neglecting someone or something every single minute of every single day. I always felt guilty. I never said no. I never had time for myself.
Do you ever feel that way?
Then, one Sunday afternoon I took off my bra and my hand brushed up against a hard lump on my breast.
I had breast cancer at age 35, a disease I had lost my own mother to when I was 7 years old.
My diagnosis and treatment took me on a transformative journey of self realization and discovery. I figured out what I really wanted from life and how to get it. And what I wanted was really pretty simple.
I wanted to wake up each morning and be joyful. Just joyful.
And that's what I want for you too.
