All of life is beautiful and purposeful. There are always reasons for joy – even in sorrowful experiences.
HOLLAND, Mich. (PRWEB) June 01, 2017
Shannon Elhart marks her publishing debut with the release of “The Healing Gift of Gratitude” (published by Balboa Press in December of 2016), a self-help guide created from her personal, conscious journey from difficult life experiences.
“After I experienced many very difficult life experiences (my newborn’s death, addiction to alcohol, rape, divorce, and a lifetime struggle with low self-worth), I began a journey to consciously heal all of it. By ‘consciously’ I mean getting to the root of it. Rather than covering it up or avoiding the pain, I wanted to heal it to the point where I not only accepted the pain but I gave it room in my life so I could grow and become a better person through it.”
“The Healing Gift of Gratitude” helps readers live a life more grounded in appreciation for everything – things about the self, about others and about the world. The most surprising discoveries in Elhart’s book are to find gratitude for unexpected, simple and even painful life experiences. Those discoveries not only change one’s day-to-day style of living, they help begin healing deep wounds so a person can be free from the past.
“All of life is beautiful and purposeful. There are always reasons for joy – even in sorrowful experiences. I hope readers recognize the reliance joy and sorrow have on each other so they’re better able to navigate and grow through their suffering, trusting that joy is on the other side,” Elhart says.
Highlighting gratitude as “learned by doing, not taught by reading,” the book presents a very brief “lesson” in gratitude followed by the freedom to journal for a week, in a way that applies the lesson in a very personal way.
