About

Just like you…

Hi there! I’m Leanne, a pretty average working mom of two and professional writer for over a decade who struggles every…single…day…to feel grounded and at peace. My mind buzzes, my emotions run high, I am no zen master. I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression my entire life.

319471_636670884735_7881813_nOn April 15, 2013, I found myself at the finish line of the Boston Marathon when the bombs went off. On that day, everything I had ever known was shattered. I tried to come to peace with what I saw, what I did and didn’t do in those moments, but nothing worked. That was the beginning of my modern awakening and how, many years later, this blog came to be.

A Modern Awakening is a place where you can find the tools, tips, guides, mantras, and eBooks that will help you live a more connected mindful life. During my spiritual journey, I’ve learned quite a bit and hope that some of the things I will share will help you on yours. We are all in this together!

Join my email list and I’ll send you a free eBook on finding happiness at home and in the workplace, plus tips, information, and inspirational mantras that will help you live a happier and more present life—sent straight to your inbox.
