ABOUT Tricia Rose Stone

“Through rose colored glasses we can begin to look within and see our true beauty and extend that vision out to see the love and beauty in the world around us”

There was a long, winding journey that led me to the discovery of Rose Colored Glasses.

When my daughter was just three months old, and I was 30, an unexpected and painful divorce launched me onto a long path of healing and discovery.

Through therapy, intensive workshops, journaling, and meditation, I faced down difficult feelings – which, as I began to discover, weren’t all tethered to the divorce. I uncovered older emotions, long buried deep inside, waiting to be healed.

My journey into motherhood brought joy, adventure, and its own unique challenges. A turning point occurred when my daughter, who I raised as a single parent since infancy, turned 16 and opted to go live with her father.

The uncomfortable feelings surfaced again, and with them came questions like: Am I enough? Am I worthy? Am I capable?

In plumbing the doubts and the answers I found within, I realized I could reframe this experience as a gift. Our time apart offered a time of growth for both of us, and an opportunity for new connection as well.

This emboldened my belief in a loving universe that continually urges us to grow through our challenges, empowering us to become more fully who we are here to be. This initially painful experience ultimately helped free me from my old doubts.

My wish is to build a community that supports women to honor and celebrate their own unique paths, while recognizing how deeply connected we all are. Through “rose colored glasses” we can see the goodness and kindness within us, and then project our deepened sense of self-love outward. We can see a loving world that reflects back to us the truth – that we are loved, we belong, and we are worthy.

*Tricia and her husband are currently busy blending their family along both coasts, splitting time between Boston and Los Angeles. She has an 18 year old daughter and 3 adult stepdaughters.
