Bright Light Living provides simple tools, inspiration, and insight to help you master your life with positivity, productivity, and passion.

Welcome! I am Kristin O’Ferrall, a wife, mother of two boys, and a true creative at heart. By trade I am a writer: grant writer, author of Marianna Mestre: Nothing’s As It Seems (Volume 1), and freelance writer.  Why did I start this blog and what can YOU GAIN from it? Well . . .

My Big 5 – 0 (gulp) is lurking – not this year’s birthday, but the next – and I realized that I was tired of not achieving everything that I wanted for my life. I am done with excuses.  I had My Bright Light Living A-Moment and decided to take action—I mean REAL, roll-up-your-sleeves, who cares what other people think ACTION.

This is my year to ROCK IT! and I plan on doing just that. I also hope that you will join me on this journey.  This is YOUR year to ROCK IT too.   I invite and encourage you to subscribe to my blog so that you can receive helpful tips, practical resources, and inspirational insights to TOTALLY ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS in life.

Where to Start?

52 Healthy Habits Assessment Chart
Challenge yourself with this 52 Healthy Habits Challenge. These are healthy habits for the mind, body, and spirit!  The goal is to incorporate as many of these habits into your own life.  I’ve even included this free Healthy Habits Assessment Chart, which lists out all the 52 healthy habits with corresponding assessment boxes–you click off one of the following for each habit: (1) Mastered It, (2) Work in Progress, (3) Off the Wagon, or (4) Not Yet Attempted.

My goal for this blog is to use these 52 Healthy Habits as my foundation.  The site will provide resources, tips, and motivation to master these healthy habits.

What Can You Expect?

Resources to help you master all areas of your life, such as:

The Diary of a Writer

And for those fellow writers, I have included The Diary of a Writer, which will chronicle my fiction writing as I work on the sequel to Marianna Mestre.  I would love to hear from other writers, especially those giving words of encouragement. My goal is to do the same. This is my way of holding myself accountable as I consistently work on my sequel.
