Forgiveness and acceptance, two of the greatest ways of bringing peace of mind and healing the traumas of life.

Learn to forgive oneself, leads to learning how to forgive others and to release toxic bonds.

Acceptance of what life throws at us, in the knowledge nothing that we're meant to experience ( good and bad ) will ever pass us bye, leads to viewing life with a positive attitude and perspective.

Good luck with your book, I'm sure it will help many a soul. X
