The Language of Letting Go
by Melody Beattie
August Special Price: $13
The cover of Melody Beattie’s book The Language of Letting Go is a beautiful monarch butterfly, recently born but hanging on to its cocoon. Will she let go or will she continue to cling fiercely to the cradle that no longer serves any purpose? We know she’ll be happier if she lets go, but does she? It’s a problem.
The Language of Letting Go is a popular meditation book with “366 moving reflections and prayers to guide us through each day of the year” with reminders that “the best way to heal and grow is to take responsibility for our own pain and self-care.”
Beatty says about The Language of Letting Go, “It is a book to help you feel good and assist you in the process of self care and recovery.”
The August 6 meditation reminds us that problems are made to be solved; there’s a solution for every one of them. We don’t need to be surprised that life hold problems for us, it always will.
“Sometimes, problems just are; sometimes they are a warning sign that we are on the wrong track. We can learn to accept problems as an inevitable part of life. We can learn to solve problems. We can learn to learn to trust our ability to solve problems. … We can focus on the solution rather than on the problem, and maintain a positive attitude toward life and the inevitable flow of problems and solutions.” (p. 219)
Available throughout August at Stepping Stones Bookstore for $13.
