Hello Hello, my name is Michelle! Welcome to my blog! I’m so glad you’re here and we can share this journey together…
…in this world where things can seem so gloomy I love to hold on to the fact that amongst all the negative there is still light and positive energy that can take hold of a person’s soul and bring them to their true self…a self that shines with love and happiness and can truly SPARKLE….
So…you might be wondering, “Sparkles and Rainbows,” really is this chick serious?!?! Heck yes i’m serious! There is a bit of a story behind the whole thing. Shortly after I met my husband, two months in to be exact, he popped the question. He told me that in his engineer/business brain everything seemed very black and white. It was when we first met that he saw light, sparkles, and rainbows flowing out of me…love at first sight to be just a little bit cheesy! He claims to see that positive energy in me everyday, even when I don’t see it in myself.
It is truly the most wonderful feeling in the world to have the support of someone who can love you even when you feel you are at your worst. Someone who sees the good in you…no matter what trials life throws your way. But what is even better is when you can stand on your own two feet and HONESTLY say I LOVE MYSELF!!!
When we first met, I would not say that I was at my best, far from it to be honest. It took falling all the way to the bottom of the pit for me to see that life and enjoying each moment is a conscious and active choice that an individual needs to make. Meeting my husband was truly an angel intervening in both our life paths and bringing us to a place where we can really know what it means to love another human being! We didn’t save each other or depend on the love of one another to build our relationship…we both had to be in a place of self acceptance and love for our paths to cross.
Before I met my husband I was struggling. I had been through therapy and counseling with the surface being the only thing affected. I thought I was making progress and yet I still struggled on a day to day basis with even the simplest of tasks and emotions. But somewhere deep down inside I knew I was worth it. I still loved the person I was becoming, alas with some major tweaking being needed, and I knew that someday…cheesy I know…I would find someone who valued me, himself, and our relationship. But it all started with valuing myself as the #1 PERSON in my life and taking care of my light and loving myself.
I started this blog as a way to track my life goals and loves and progress in rediscovering my inner light and value! I hope to take this journey one day at a time and with each baby step loving myself more and practicing radiating my light and love to others.
I hope you follow along on my journey and maybe together we can learn some crazy life lessons together…
Love & Light & Blessings,
