Welcome to my blog!


Michelle Pitot

Five years ago I was cruising along in miserable auto-pilot when I survived a life-threatening event. There’s nothing like becoming acutely aware of death to make you face your life. Since that day I’ve made many external changes in my life but it’s the internal ones that matter to me the most. That’s what this blog is about.

The stories on these pages are from my life but none of us is unique. If any of my narratives speak to you, cause you to wonder, to think, to laugh, maybe even make a change in your own life, then my job here is done. But please don’t just read my words – tell your own story too. Stories create connection, awaken feelings, give voice to thoughts and realities too often hidden.

All of us have a story to tell and it is in telling our stories that we alter reality. These pages are born out of my life mission to change the world. I invite you to speak up, write it down, reach out to others… and change your corner of the world as well.
