  1. Melissa,

    Having met you face to face a few years ago in Chicago, I can confirm how well your handling of drama is accomplished. The energy you devoted to a receptive audience was seriously impressive and your props (I remember crazy footwear and word play on the FUNctionality of family life) memorable.

    I often work with performers, who are simultaneously wanted for their celebrity and scorned for their drama. Somehow ‘Keep on the SUNNY SIDE of Life’ reminds me of ‘The Happiness of Pursuit’. There is a great deal we can learn from your resilience and continued perseverance.

    Sun salutations to you!

    Hi Melissa,
    I found this blog most pertinent to the environment I often find myself in with friends and family. I often find I have to reframe not only my own view but attempt to deliver a better one to others around me.

    I have to admit it’s not always an easy task doing so. As a trauma survivor I’m very aware of establishing new perceptions and associated behaviour but find it challenging in a world that sensationalises drama.

    It’s great to see someone being honest about the challenges of their journey.

    Much appreciated.

      Delighted to know that you are already practicing reframing and understand the value so well.

      You are totally correct, it isn’t always easy to do, particularly as a trauma survivor. I applaud your efforts.

      Hugs, Melissa

    I also believe that we need to throw out the drama in our lives and concentrate on the more positive things in our life. Also let us take action and work towards resolving the not so good issues in our lives.

      Thanks Lynne,

      It can be hard to toss out the drama which is why I reframe it . . .ultimately it disappears. Reframing is that step in the gap.


  5. Hi Melissa,

    Great post! When we discover that everything we say and do has an effect on our environment it can be pretty humbling to say the least. Life on this planet is about solving problems. When I began understanding that one cannot solve a problem if they are the problem things began to shift. Similar to what you were saying about taking responsibility for our words, actions I began to recognize that I was the constant in every situation. It no longer became about life happening to me rather more about me orchestrating life.

      Thank you Carol,

      You are so right, healing and a drama-free life starts with each of us! Glad you are on board.

    Another tip I use is from Edwene Gaines: “Forgive everyone, everything – especially yourself.”
    I find much of my drama stems from holding on to old hurts and perceived “wrongs”.

    Thanks for a great post!

    Thanks Darlene,

    Yes, I’m a fan of Edwene Gaines and have considered attending a workshop in Alabama. My favorite of hers is “The Four Laws of Spiritual Prosperity.”

    Hugs, Melissa
