Oh, hello there!
I’m Esther Zimmer.
I’m a writer, lifestyle coach and a woman on a mission to live my most wildly beautiful and fulfilling life, naming what I truly want, without apology.
I fill my life with adventures and I love nothing more than packing a bag and heading somewhere new with my husband, David. We share a home in London and there’s an easel in one corner of our living room, piles of books lurking in dusty corners and photographs from our worldwide travels hanging on our walls. I spend my days talking with incredible women and my nights writing or getting lost in stories. I love to read books in the bath.
Words have played a powerful role in my life for as long as I can recall; my own as much as other people’s. I’ve kept a journal of some description ever since I left home at 16 and I wrote for a living throughout my corporate career. Writing is how I make sense of the world, my thoughts and my feelings. I believe the way we think about and speak to ourselves, and the stories we hold onto and tell others about who we are, can shape our lives in the most profound ways.
This space is where I share my work but it’s also my online journal; the place I write about life as a perfectly imperfect human, where I capture the rough and the smooth we all experience. I believe we need one another’s honest stories; to see our own thoughts and feelings reflected back at us, for encouragement and inspiration and to learn different ways to move through life.
My mission is to inspire women to let go of their old stories from the past and to name what they truly want, in order to write a new story for their future.
What the world needs now, more than ever, are women who are committed to living in a way that feels authentic to them; shining their light and sharing their gifts, their passions and their stories, and living their lives so well, they inspire others to live their lives well too.
