About me

My passion is connecting with people and inspiring them.  Like you, I faced many challenges in life – cancer being one of them.  The key to overcoming adversity, being happy and healthy is maintaining a positive spirit, supporting each other, doing things that make us smile, and keeping it simple.  Making a difference, protecting animal and human rights, enjoying nature, dancing, meditating, and writing are my motivators. Recently I became certified in a whole food plant-based nutrition program which is a healthy and moral choice for me, animals, marine life, and our planet.

Hope these Pick-me-up Pearls inspire you.  Feel good, Be well!   ~Michelle

    • Hi SparkyJen! First of all, love your name and spirit on your blog. 🌟 Inspiration is my passion in life. Like Ralph Waldo Emerson stated in his poem: Success is “to know one life has breathed easier because you have lived.”

      Friends tell me how much they love my positive posts on Facebook. There’s so much negativity and stress in today’s world, it’s nice to help pick people up. It’s how I chose this blog name.

      As far as my lifestyle: I try to live a healthy life eating mostly a plant-based diet, stay active through tap dancing, Zumba, Pilates, walking on the beach, sipping wine and enjoying fun times with family and friends, writing, meditating, traveling, and volunteering for social justice groups.

      I’m reminding myself to step outside of my comfort zone, try new adventures and be a little more fearless. Life is good but it’s not perfect. Bumps in the road challenge us and enable us to grow. I appreciate lessons learned and people who give us new perspectives.

      Thanks for your interest and inspiration! I look forward to reading and sharing our stories. 🙂 Michelle
