25 True Stories on Letting Go (and the Peace and Balance Bonus Pack)

Nothing in the universe can stop you from letting go and starting over. – Guy Finley

My new book, Letting Go: 25 True Stories of Peace, Hope and Surrender, is now available exclusively from Amazon.

The project started last January when I asked The BridgeMaker community to share a time when they made the decision to let go of anger, of the past, of a relationship, of guilt, of heartache, of anxiety, of mistakes, of perfection or of any negative attachment.

The purpose of this project was to create a collaborative book about the life-changing gift that letting go gives you and me.

Letting go is something that many of us struggle with, which makes it difficult, if not impossible, to live fully in the present.

When our thoughts are constantly going to a time or place somewhere in the past, it’s hard to see the moment that’s right before us. The project also helped me address the pain I was still feeling after the unexpected death of brother in October, 2011.

It was hard to let go of my feelings of shame, guilt and pain after Eric died. Working on the book over the last 10 months has helped me move forward in the healing process by remembering this important life lesson: letting go isn’t a sign of weakness; it’s a sign of strength.

About the Book

Letting Go: 25 True Stories of Peace, Hope and Surrender offers 25 heartfelt stories from people just like you and me. These stories provide a properly-sized window into their lives and give the encouragement to let go and finally move on. The stories are categorized into five parts:

  • Letting Go of Relationships
  • Letting Go of Emotional Attachments
  • Letting Go of the Past
  • Letting Go of Fear
  • Letting Go of our Children

Each true story will help you remember that you’re not alone on your journey and that letting go is about having the faith to offer up your struggles and then getting out of the way so your beautiful life can be revealed.
