Monday's Inspiration Celebration - Joan Anderson

I love Joan Anderson's message of being true to oneself. Her focus is on women and how the first half of our lives typically are devoted to taking care of others. I can relate to this to some degree, although I don't have children and haven't had the same kind of struggle for time of my own that I know many women experience. Still, it can be hard in our society to drop the feeling that we need to mold ourselves to please others. Joan is a wonderful role model for me in my quest to stand in my own truth, as you can see here and here.

Joan Anderson's books include A Year by the Sea, A Walk on the Beach, An Unfinished Marriage, and The Second Journey.
