Hi! I'm Cheli

​I'm the author and creator of live well explore often. Welcome!

Interesting fact about myself: I graduated college at 19.  Not because I was a prodigy, but because I excelled at moving fast through life.

I seemed like I was always trying to get to the next stage..quickly.

 

But why?

 

I sense it was my unconscious reaction to overcoming life's traumas at the time.  Coupled with allowing voices outside of my own to dictate the paths I should follow.  But I didn't know that at the time.

 

I do now.

And with that awareness came the realization that being present and mindful was the real antidote.  We can't always forecast the joy or unexpected disappointments life will bring us, but that does not mean we should not be present through it all.  We should - the good, the bad, and the ugly.

For years, I have served as a useful source to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I started writing about my travels, passions, my thoughts, and curious wondering about our world.

I created "Live Well Explore Often" with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and I have been at it ever since.

Take some time to explore the blog, sign up for a vision workshop, and feel free to reach out if you would like to collaborate on a project together.

"Anyone can touch awakening in whatever job he or she enjoys the most.  The most important thing is to just be ourselves and live our lives as deeply and mindfully as we can". - Thich Nhat Hanh
