hi! I’m tracy konane

I’ve always been the outsider with the over-active imagination, whimsical ideas, and odd interests.

The idea of self-improvement excited me from a very young age.

I wanted to be a Care Bear and  fly around in a cloud car and show sad kids a new world of possibilities.

When I realized that I had full control over who I chose to be, I felt like I had discovered the biggest secret of a fulfilling life.


During my three decades, I’ve taken myself through multiple stages of evolution.

I’ve leveled-up through my social anxiety and low self-worth, through anger and jealousy and no ambition, through abusive relationships on both sides, through excessive cheap belongings and a trashy lifestyle, through awful diet and health issues and full-body rashes, through depending on getting drunk every night, through all the “shoulds” and societal expectations, and through many dark nights of the soul feeling utterly lost.

It wasn’t always smooth, easy, and beautiful, but I’m forever dead set and excessively passionate about creating the change I wish to see in myself.  To be able to help others do the same is an immense honor and one of my biggest and most fulfilling loves.

We create ourselves.

I believe that knowing and growing ourselves is a beautiful life-long practice and lifestyle.

It’s never about perfection; it’s about facing life with resilience, compassion, energy, love, and a creative spirit.




For the extra-inquisitive:

I was born and raised on Oahu, Hawaii, where I could always see two mountain ranges and acres of pineapple fields.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and a Master’s in Information Science.  I graduated from Master Coach Brooke Castillo’s Life Coach School in 2014.

I have an amazing man in my life who constantly inspires me to level-up by simply being who he is.

I am a Libra (Leo rising), an INFJ, and a fierce introvert who enjoys the extroverted life in short but glorious bursts.

My #1  favorite band is Rammstein, but you’ll usually find me listening to chill-out, dance music, and all kinds of rock.

I’ve been a band geek, a piano teacher, a building attendant, a bartender and waitress extraordinaire, web & graphic designer, librarian assistant, and crazy party animal.

I know the majority of Cats, Phantom, and Les Mis by heart.

I love birds.  Incidentally I’ve also always loved dinosaurs.

I love traveling and have a thing for trains.

My fantasy panel of mentors is Gandalf, Jimi Hendrix, Guinen, Capt. Picard, Bjork, and the Dalai Lama.

I have the humor of a 6 year old boy.

We’ll leave it at that for now!

    Hi! I stumbled upon your blog, The Monk Life, and I love it. I have a blog, theglimmery.com, that aims to capture hopes and dreams and happiness. I was wondering if you don’t mind me quoting from your blog; I will link back. And also, what is your background in being a life-monk? You can e-mail me privately if you’d like at gaolimoua@yahoo.com. I did try to e-mail you but it came back bad.
