I’m Liz Petrone, And This Is My Dharma

I’m Liz Petrone, And This Is My Dharma

Hi. I’m Liz. I am a mama, a writer, a yogi, a warrior, a wanderer, a dreamer, a doubter, and a hot mess. I write stories on my blog about love and loss and raising babies and how life can be so hard and so beautiful all at the same time. My work has been featured all over the internet and instead of cleaning I usually spend my free time working on my first book, a memoir.

Your Personal or Professional Goals:

My goal as a writer and story teller has always been to share my own truths in a way that might help anyone else feel less alone. I write stories from my life and the lives of the people around me on my blog that I hope can help my readers see that while each one of us is unique, so much of the human experience is universal. I’m also working on finishing my first book, a memoir that shares the story of the loss of my mother to suicide and the birth of my son three weeks later.

What’s your offering to the world:

All too often we hold these things inside of us, whether it is out of shame or fear or just a general feeling that no one else could possibly understand. I want to help encourage people to discover the beauty and connection that lie inherent in sharing our stories.

Who/What Inspires You:

I’m inspired by the great story tellers in history, of course, but I am also inspired maybe even more by the everyday people I meet who are getting up in the morning and facing their struggles head on, one day or hour or step at a time. There is so much strength in the quiet perseverance of so many of us.


My mission as a writer is no different than my mission as a mother or a wife or a sister: I want to leave the world a better place than I found it.

Favorite Quote:

I love this incredible quote from Cheryl Strayed:

“Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can’t cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It’s just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal.” ― Cheryl Strayed, Tiny Beautiful Things: Advice on Love and Life from Dear Sugar

Your Goals:

My goals change from minute to minute depending on barometric pressure and how many children are climbing on me and how much caffeine I have had, but here are the things I would like to accomplish this year:

1. Finish my memoir.
2. Run a half marathon.
3. Make peace with my body.
4. Learn how to rock a hand stand.
5. Learn how to apply eyeliner.
6. Carry some of my online friendships into real life friendships.
7. Speak publicly without bursting into tears.
8. Become less intimately acquainted with the snooze button. Ditto white flour.
9. Set an example of grace and beauty for my children while not losing myself in the process.
10. Change the world.
