This site is about helping you live a better-feeling life.

I’m Mimi Harmon, and here’s my philosophy:

A better-feeling life consists of better-feeling moments.
But it’s in everyday moments that we most derail our lives.


By thinking about our lives in bad-feeling ways that bring us down.

And once we’re down, by thinking more things that “help” us stay there.

Put another way, the more time we spend emotionally out of sorts, the less capacity we have to live and create better-feeling moments that make a better-feeling life.

An everyday—and every day—thought I had went something like this: I’m wasting my life doing this job.

I thought it so much that I made myself sick and stopped working to regain my health; this threw my life into financial crisis, which created new problems for me, like losing my home.

Thankfully, I’d learned about the power of the mind and started using mine to tell better-feeling stories about my life. And now, my life feels better because I’ve put storytelling at the center of a career I’m building for myself.

Through my books and short stories, you’ll get practical ideas for making your life feel better. Just as importantly, you’ll get musings about little stuff that can send you astray in big ways.

We can learn from each other’s experiences, so I write about mine. Even the unflattering ones. Particularly, I write about recovering from or skirting everyday stumbling blocks to free myself—and you—to get on with better-feeling things, like labors of love.

So what labors of love do I have on my horizon?
The “work” of using storytelling to strengthen and promote small businesses, and to help people build better-feeling communities, bank accounts and bodies, all with a special love for folks over 50, just like I am.

If that sounds good ’cause you’re itching to learn and/or teach about any of those topics, sign up here to keep in touch.

By signing up, you’ll get a gift: a workbook to get clear about a better-feeling career. You’ll also get occasional bite-sized stories from me in your inbox and updates about my projects.
