Rosemary Strunk and Wendy Wiles co-created Living Courageously, LLC. We chose a name that would inspire us and our clients to live life courageously - cultivating awareness, embracing change, exercising our strengths, living our Values, practicing mindfulness, and expressing loving-kindness one breath at a time.

We choose owning our stories of struggle, over hiding, over hustling, over pretending. When we deny our stories, they define us. When we run from struggle, we are never free. So we turn toward truth and look it in the eye.....We are the authors of our lives. We write our own daring endings. We craft love from heartbreak, compassion from shame, grace from disappointment, courage from failure....
— Dr. Brene Brown, Rising Strong
