About CTPM

Book cover A Practical Guide to Breaking Free, Moving Forward and Living    Genuinely


You can’t hold on to a perfect moment forever, but many of us try, and for some people, clinging to that perfect moment, reliving it over and over, is more important than facing reality.

Do you have a special moment that you hang on to? Are there moments that make you feel good, and safe, that you continually use as a blueprint for your life- or vice-versa, how many moments do you run from because they are unpleasant to think about?

Finding our core self can sometimes be a challenge if our genuineness takes a backseat to these moments. Ideas, traditions and stories we tell ourselves, good or bad, can be comfortable and familiar, and if we are not paying attention, can become a pattern of thinking that we can get stuck in.

CTPM helps you to explore your current belief systems and find out what is real for you. You are encouraged to understand why current life situations may or may not be working for you anymore. When you realize who you are meant to be, your purpose becomes greater than your fears.

CTPM is dedicated to my late husband, Mike Brown, who journeyed with me and helped to create some incredibly “perfect moments,” but also as a life partner explored with me the greater depths of life and offered strength and new perspectives at those moments when life did not always make sense. In this spirit, I expand on excerpts from the book or share a human interest story that I think might serve as interesting nourishment for the soul and provide the solace that we are never alone.

I believe that to truly understand ourselves it’s important to express and experiment with our innermost feelings through creativity, life and what it offers. The page “Bridges,” is just that, a bridge to connect, and offer others a platform to feature their own gifts and talents. Whether it’s a special photo, a drawing, painting, poetry, music, or whatever is unique and alive in their creative expression .

This blog was started a few years back and has went through it’s own life transitions. I have missed the very many wonderful people I met as a result of blogging and look forward to writing new posts and seeing their amazing and evolving blogs.

I hope you continue to visit my blog regularly for what I hope is insightful, informative and inspirational for you, but more importantly I hope it is a place we can share our stories and feelings. It is in these “heartfelt” moments that we gain new perspectives and an appreciation for others and the beauty all around us.

Most sincerely,


Ginny Brown

    Dear Chasing, I LOVE the title of your blog: chasing the perfect moment! I’m glad you enjoyed my post about taxes. I found the information to be eye-opening. Annie

  17. I agree we are kindred spirits with a passion for the simple things in life.
