If you would like to step through a portal into a You-niverse full of new choices and second chances, read Chiron O'Keefe's amazing book, ' Bravely You, Bravely Me, Being You Without Apology,' for an experience that will change your life.
An accomplished storyteller, Chiron infuses stories of her bravest and most heartbreaking moments with wit and warmth, while encouraging the reader to build connections with oneself and others by owning the stories we all have to tell. She examines her own tumultuous childhood with honesty and courage, revealing the wounded child we all carry some part of deep within us and the steps we can take to begin our own healing journey.
In the words of Brene' Brown, "When we deny the story, it defines us. When we own the story, we can write a brave new ending." With empathy and compassion, Chiron O'Keefe shows us how to do exactly that- change the script of our life story with awareness of our longing to know who we are as well as our need for meaningful connections, thus changing the pain of the past into a glorious celebration of our own indomitable spirit. You won't close this book without knowing your heart has been opened to the joy and love we all so richly deserve!

Are we bound to become the people that circumstances dictate? In Bravely You, Bravely Me, Chiron O'Keefe challenges the authorship of her own selfhood, offering the reader the tantalizing idea that identity is as malleable as the language of story. How do we expect our life story to go? What happens if we decide to change the plot? The remarkable truth O'Keefe offers is that we can toss out the script and write ourselves a new one any time we choose. It really is that simple. Bravely You, Bravely Me is a wise, soulful, and compassionate reminder to look for the story each of us is composing every day, and to inhabit that creativity as a joyfully conscious creator.

A beautiful memoir infused with self-acceptance exercises, Bravely You, Bravely Me is an inspiring and empowering trip to the Land of You. Like the Great and Powerful Oz, Ms. O’Keefe sets us on the yellow brick road of uncertainty and introspection, only to lead us into an enchanted world where we feel safe enough to draw back the curtain and meet the person running the show—our own true Self. With courage, insight, and joy, Bravely You, Bravely Me reveals we’ve always had the power to fully embrace who we are…and who we want to be.

“We’re all delicious mysteries,” writes O’Keefe. In this personal, powerful and playful book, she invites us to explore and experiment with our beliefs. With practical examples and exercises, she shows us how to release the pain and trauma we’ve endured (she herself endured plenty) and create the freer, more satisfying life we yearn for. Illuminated throughout with sensual detail, in one passage O’Keefe speaks of the metamorphosis of caterpillar to butterfly, calling it “a provocative summons, beckoning us towards an irrevocable transformation.” It is O’Keefe’s gift to do the same for us.

O’Keefe writes as if she was destined to do exactly that: create with her words. Powerful. Moving. Inspiring. The reader will be fully immersed into the story she tells and they will have a hard time letting go. They become a part of the journey O’Keefe takes them on. It appears to me she found her gift in life and it’s in the written word.
