Hi, my name is Michele Anderson, and I started this blog because I want to help people feel more connected to their life and experience the joy and peace that comes with that.
For decades I struggled with anxieties that kept me from truly living my life and experiencing the peace and happiness that we all have a right to. Through the loss of a job, I tumbled down into a deep depression and finally realized that I had been living my life in survival mode completely lost.
Something inside of me wanted more than just to survive–I wanted to feel good about who I was. I started on a spiritual journey and read everything I could on the subject. Some of my favorite authors are Dr. Wayne Dyer, Eckhart Tolle, Louise Hay, Dr. Judith Orloff, Don Miguel Ruiz, and Jon Kabat-Zinn. What I learned on my quest was that we all have a right to be happy; we just have to choose to be.
I realized that I was carrying a lot of negativity–the result of wounds from a bad childhood. I knew that I had to heal myself, but the first step in doing that was to forgive–a very hard task for me. I had to forgive everyone who ever hurt me–including myself.
My journey of healing led me to writing a book, A Daughter’s Journey Toward Enlightenment. I’m still looking to get this book published.* In the book, I take the reader on a journey of my life in the hope that by sharing my experiences I can help those that are suffering with the same negative emotions I had for my mom and myself, and maybe shed some light on helping us all to be mindful parents and better nurturers.
Thank you for visiting my blog, and please share your thoughts with me; I care about you.
Remember, you are not all alone on your journey, so ask for help when you are lost.
Sending love your way.
* 2018 update on publishing the book: I’ve decided not to publish the book in its current format and have set it aside for now.
