Cathy Anello is an Author, a Certified Healing Intuitive, Host of the Podcast “Making Each Day Matter” and Co-host of the popular Blog Talk Radio show “Best Life Café’ “ Her passion for spirituality and emotional health evolved naturally through her careear in fitness and mind-body instruction. Her experience in leading classes and motivating people to strengthen their bodies through movement, their minds with meditation and humor led to her current careear in broadcasting and writing.
Cathy spent 12 years working up to 50 hours each week in a highly stressful toxic work environment – In her last two years, job place harrassment was at an all time high. This left her in a constant state of stress and anxiety. One twitter post proclaiming life had to change led to a journey of inner questions on how to live a more fulfilled life. When she suddenly lost her job after standing up to the harrassement, she unsuspectingly suffered from PTSD in its wake. This inspired her to spend the next two years finding her true self and gaining the inner strength to allow her to live a better life. Shedding all of the normal conditioned ways of life, Cathy allowed her seeking spirit to guide her – tackling the little things that she never had time to experience. Then she noticed a strange feeling – ALIVENESS. An unavoidable passion for living life to its fullest. This sense of freedom permitted her to stop living a future life in her mind and discover the true meaning of living for today.
I was working in everyday “Corporate America” enslaved to a job that was challenging my every move. I worked there for almost thirteen years, yet in the last two, it became a toxic environment with verbal abuse and harrassment being a normal day at the office. On one very impactful day, (after days of crying in my office and suffering from panic attacks as a result) I turned to twitter and I wrote the following phrase – I don’t know how I am going to live – #IonlyknowhowImnotgoingtolive
Sitting there after that tweet, a voice out of no where asked me the following question : “Cathy, would you be living your life this way if you only had 6 months to live?” This began a quest for answers, so I started a daily journaling practice, recording my thoughts about what really mattered to me, and as I started to seek them, the answers came. I was soon after fired from my corporate job, and this led to six months on the floor debilitated and confused at losing what I thought the future held, and then six months of finding my power back- learning to live by different guidelines then I had ever allowed myself. Seeking joy and making time for people and things that mattered.
