What does the D•I•Y stand for?


Daring: Having the courage to take chances

Intuitive: Sharing the wisdom gained from our time on earth

Young@heart: Retaining the curiosity and optimism of youth

DIYWOMAN is about connecting, supporting, gaining strength from others and navigating through life the best way we can. It’s about how we choose to respond to life’s challenges.

As long as we have choices, we have agency.

DIYWOMAN covers a wide range of topics, from relationships to travel to ways to stay engaged in our world. We write about books we love and books we gave up on – and don’t feel guilty about. Because we know the most precious commodity we have is time, and we’ve still got lots to pack in to our allocation.
