• The Vibrant Life Initiative

    Dear Friends, The Vibrant Life is a philosophy that I’ve been developing over the last several years. I started it as a sort of self-therapy to help with my depression and anxiety. I was living in an oppressively gray world that I knew in my heart should be colorful and vibrant. I’m still on that journey. Some days are still excruciatingly difficult. But I am learning how to change my thoughts and actions and become a better version of myself. As I’ve followed this path of personal development my desire to share my insights with others has grown too intense to ignore. So the Vibrant Life Initiative was born; an invitation…

  • Episode 5: Kindred Spirits

    Yo Peeps! Welcome to The Vibrant Life Podcast where each week we take a look at ways to live life out loud, in color, and on purpose. My name is Emily Romrell and this is Episode 5: Kindred Spirits.  This week I want to focus on the people in our lives, the difference they make, and how to seek out and find more and more wonderful relationships along the way. C. S. Lewis is a hero of mine, and in my opinion he was one of the greatest thinkers and writers of the twentieth century. The Chronicles of Narnia was probably the first book series that I fell heart and…

  • Episode 4: The Happy Medium

    Welcome to the Vibrant Life! My name is Emily Romrell. Today is February  15, 2016, and this is Episode 4: The Happy Medium.  This week the focus is all about finding balance. It can be pretty tricky at times, but it’s definitely possible. Finding the Happy Medium is a fundamental part of living a vibrant life. I love Science Fiction, and I love Children’s books. So you might be able to guess that one of my all time favorite writers is Madeleine L’Engle author of the fabulous book “A Wrinkle in Time.” I love that she uses real science in her writing, and she doesn’t dumb things down for her…

  • Episode 2: Be Not Weary In Well Doing

    Hello Friends, and happy Monday! My name is Emily Romrell. Welcome to The Vibrant Life. This is Episode 2: Be Not Weary in Well Doing. On this episode,  I’ll be discussing the origins of this saying, how it became my personal mantra, and how it has become a true source of strength and help for me to keep fighting the good fight. Do you have a favorite movie line? My family loves to watch movies and sometimes we can have whole conversations made up from movie quotes. After Batman Begins came out in 2005 my brother, Dallin, couldn’t go a whole day without saying, “Stay calm, you’ve been poisoned.”  And…
