Stuff Happens It’s Not the End

Update: 2020-09-25


Welcome to the Winning Season Podcast with this week’s featured guest Tawana Anderson. Tawana is the author of Bruised and Broken to Shine: A Memoir, she is the mother of twins, a traveler, and a fantastic cook.

In this episode, Tawana talks about the idea SHINE, which stands for Stuff Happens It’s Not the End. She discusses the importance of letting go of the darkness and shame of a person’s past and finding your inner shine.

She wants others to shine their light because a person may look like they have it all together, but in reality, they could be thinking about themselves in a negative way. The practice is to let your light shine to be the best version of yourself, and she has different practices and programs to help others find their light. Her programs include getting together with women to share their light and travel with others to experience new things.

Bruised and Broken to Shine: A Memoir, Tawana’s story, and ways to let your light shine. You can reach Tawana at or on Instagram at tawana_shine. You can purchase her book either on Amazon or on her website. You can also

join the Shine Lifestyle group on Facebook for women who are wanting to be part of the SHINE


“I shared a lot of stuff about me just to show people that you will have these bruises and these breaks and people will call you broken but that’s how you get to your shine. That shine is inside of you.” --Tawana Anderson
