I don’t know if I can call this a review or a boat ride that meanders through rushing waters of refreshing, untethered experiences. As I finished reading “My Inspired Life: A Poetic Journey” by author Michele Lee Sefton, the day was a cool, rainy day, and pausing as I sifted through her soothing words connected with my spirit on so many levels. Michele’s poetic epiphanies spill over into a fountain of cleansing resolve.
I was immediately introduced to Michele’s “intentional change journey” encouraging the transformational path of her readers. Starting with “A Story Set Free” to one of my favorites, “Making More Space for Hellos,” this is indeed a collection of relinquishing toxic people and escaping those things that try to steal our joy and tether our minds and spirits.
Her poems act as a releasing agent while words that once paralyzed her spirit, which all of us can relate to, are flushed like spoiled waste. Certain words come to mind when I read Michele’s poetry: melodious, captivating, growing, breathtaking, inspiring, releasing, compassionate, kindness, empathy, respect, and encouraging, just to name a few. Piggy-backing on the author’s parting words, this collection is an expanse of inspired spaces to pause, rest, take a deep breath, and become energized with a renewed spirit.
Continue to dance Michele, our free spirit!
