The purpose of this book is simple. It is to encourage compassion and kindness in others, and to look beyond what you see or hear. Everyone has a story, many actually – like the ones in this book, and also like the ones that are not in this book, because we’re not quite ready to share and embrace the pain associated with those experiences. When we are ready though, we will always have a choice, and there are many ways to heal – sharing your story is one way, because it helps another know that they’re not alone…and perhaps it reassures us too.
I believe that the difficult and challenging times in our lives, is what defines us most. There is profound teaching in every situation, if we are open to it.
What this book is not about, is magnifying or belabouring these sometimes incredibly tragic moments – it is about honouring them actually, and celebrating the learning, wisdom and appreciation we gained for what is…and isn’t ‘now’.
Hearts Linked by Courage is a collection of real-life inspirational stories, ones of courage, surviving and thriving after abuse, the loss of a loved one and more! They’re meant to give you hope and encouragement that inspires you to have faith, learn from your experiences, be present and thankful every day, and take the higher road in life, regardless of what life throws at you.
And when you are in the depths of the ‘going through’ phase, let these stories be a reminder that ‘this too shall pass’ and you are not alone.
