Welcome

Hello!

There’s SO much going on in our world. Every day can bring new challenges to our happiness and sense of wellbeing. Making authentic connections with other people feels more important to me now, than ever before. I created this Blog in 2019, as a way of sharing my personal stories and perspectives about our shared process of Life. I explain a little about my background in my Posts: I didn’t have the happiest or healthiest of childhoods, but I know I gained a solid understanding of what it takes to not only survive, but thrive through tough circumstances; personal and professional.
Through my writing, if I can touch just one person’s heart with the message, “You’re never as alone as you think!”, having to learn the mechanics of Blogging will have been worth it. Thank you for spending some of your precious time with me!

Is Something/Someone Truly a ‘Good Fit’?

Is Something/Someone Truly a ‘Good Fit’?

I was labeled as a “willful" child. “Stubborn and pig-headed!” as a teenager and young adult. Despite appearances, I was actually super-impressionable. For years I made choices that were better, or more appropriate, for someone else. To this day, I have to practice...

When I Question My Own Feelings

When I Question My Own Feelings

Whenever I express an emotion, I’m rarely ambivalent. Whether it’s “up”, “down” or just "meh”, whatever I'm feeling is apparent. But lately, when someone doesn’t seem to like, or be comfortable with whatever I've expressed, I've begun questioning the validity of my...

The “New Normal”? I Have Questions

The “New Normal”? I Have Questions

Reflections on the concept of a "New Normal" is almost daily for me. Thanks to Covid's evil twin Delta, masking indoors in California is back. The earworm in my newsfeed: “Is this [masking] the new normal?” Of course: we need to follow protocols keeping us all safe....

Our Pandemic Relationship Issues

Our Pandemic Relationship Issues

Whatever's worth doing, I want to get it right. The first time, if possible. “Practice Makes Perfect”? Even as a child, practice of any kind was a soul-killer. No doubt why my parents soon bailed on the idea of piano lessons. But over the years I discovered something...

There’s so much going on in our world. Each day can bring new challenges to our sense of wellbeing. Making connections with others feels even more important to me now.

I created this Blog in 2019, just to share what Living Bravely means to me. Like many of my Readers, I’m a survivor of some pretty devastating life-events. Living Bravely is much more than just keeping a “positive attitude”. It requires allowing our minds, hearts and spirits to take the time we need to process everything.

I hope my personal stories and observations inspire. Please share your comments and suggestions whenever you have them. I appreciate your time with me! Michele
