Learning to Let Go
Poetry and Prose Sharing the Pain, Pleasure, and Purpose of Letting Go
About the Book
Feeling the pain from hitting rock bottom after experiencing the unholy trinity of death, desolation, and divorce. She masterfully journeys back into the canals of her childhood memories, teenage fallacies, and adulthood to identify the detrimental strongholds, patterns, and behaviors she grew attached to. While laughing out loud at her hot comb traumas, crying inside for all her hidden pain, and rejoicing at her deliverance. She culminates each short story in a silky, sincere, and strong translation of her transformation. Beautifully sharing life lessons, failures and the pleasures endured, as she learned to let go of everything that hurt more than it healed, her heart.
