You don’t have forever to honour your dreams. But you do have now.


Hi, I’m Bronnie and am honoured by your visit. Welcome!

I am best known as the author of the international bestselling memoir The Top Five Regrets of the Dying. More than that, I am deeply committed to regret-free living in my own life and am reaping the rewards of such effort.

Through action, conscious choice and courage, I now live with depths of peace I'd once thought could exist, but never really believed I'd know. I also love supporting others to experience the same.


But this isn’t a spiel about life only being joyful and wonderful and amazing every single minute of the day. That wouldn’t be honest. Life is not like that.

It is full of contrasts, as we’re all called to grow and expand our concepts and understanding of this journey we share.

Life can be raw, heart-wrenching, awful, dark, frightening and confusing. It can crack us open in the hardest ways. But it can also deliver joy and wonder, with new delight in day-to-day living, not just on your once-in-a-lifetime tropical holiday under the swaying palm trees.

It is a fabulous feeling when that becomes your reality, especially through changes you’ve consciously made and fears you’ve eradicated.


My teachings on courage, regret-free living, delight and self-kindness have supported millions of people worldwide and can help you too. They are shared through my three books, audio programs, speaking engagements, music, quotes, articles and videos, and the monthly newsletter.


It truly is possible to create a life free of regrets and one of delight, regardless of what challenges life throws your way.  And that is my wish for you: to embrace your life fully and enjoyably while you're alive, never to die with the anguish and heartache of regret.

We're all in this together. We need you to rise up, through the fullest enjoyment of your life possible. It is my honour to support you in doing that.

The only formula that works long-term is to follow your own heart.

Space is medicine.

There is awe to be found in presence, regardless of apparent circumstances.

Facing our own inevitable death is a fabulous tool for joy-filled living.

Self-love is essential to truly serve others well.

Our lessons are given to us from a place of love, to bring us into our best self.

Compassion is the best response to assumptions or criticism.

Simplicity brings joy.

Our magnificent planet is our greatest teacher.

Faith manifests dreams much more powerfully than logic.

Courage is always rewarded.

The greatest appreciation we can show for our life is to enjoy it as fully as possible.
