I Believe

We will find true happiness when we learn to love ourselves as we are and others as they are, not as we wish them to be.

About Melody Chardon

For years, I struggled to make sense of why my life was not as happy as my head thought it “should be” or as amazing as my heart knew it “could be”.  My undying yearning for happiness led me on an extensive journey of learning and self-discovery.  The learning journey continues today, but now I have the tools to enjoy the ride.

During my period of self-discovery I read countless books.  Over and over, in big bold print I saw the words telling me what I “should” doing.  It seemed almost impossible to take what I should be doing and use it to free myself from the pain or create the happiness I was so desperately seeking.  Eventually it all came together.  One day, I “woke up” and it was a bright new day.  It was like flicking a switch.  My next steps became clearer than ever before.  

Of course this clarity didn’t come until I was forced to face 3 major life events.  Isn’t that always the way?  All of my previous book learning was preparing me for transformation.  Life was handing me a raw training field ripe with opportunity for growth.  I would finally learn how to take years of theory from my head right into my heart through practical application.

The loss of my father to Lewy Body Dementia in 2008, followed by a major career shift in 2009 and the death of my marriage in 2010 were all catalysts for my transformation.  I was being shown that it was time to start doing things much differently than I had before.  My health, my children and my life depended on it.   This was the turning point for me and the impetus for the work I do now.

I am a certified professional life wellness and transition coach, grief recovery specialist, a speaker, and facilitator.  I was also a radio talk show host on Voice America in 2015. I have made it my personal mission to inspire individuals to love the life they are living while transforming their relationships to food, fitness, finances, family and fun.
