101 Ways to Handle Hurtful Situations with Mindful Forgiveness Los Angeles, March 8, 2023 — Go-to gratitude expert Kelly Browne addresses the art of forgiveness and making amends for the sake of self-care and inner calmness in her new book, 101 Ways to Create Mindful Forgiveness: A Heart-Healing Guide to Forgiveness, Apologies, and Mindful Tools for Peace.
Browne shares personal stories, priceless practical guidance, journal prompts and therapeutic tools to help readers navigate a wide spectrum of difficult scenarios and freely choose to move forward in peace.
“Holding on to events that hurt us continues to cause us pain, dimming the light of our spirit and leaving us susceptible to illness,” Browne writes in the book’s introduction.
A survivor of personal trauma, Browne’s insights are meaningful and heartfelt, as she covers both personal and professional relationships in her book, teaching readers:
- How to Apologize Using the 6 Rs - Electronic Apologies: Text, Emojis and Emailed Apologies - The Three Faces of an Apology - Meaningful Apologetic Words and Notes - Moving Forward Toward Forgiveness - The Forgiveness Thesaurus - Releasing Grudges - Choosing Compassion Over Revenge - Overcoming Trauma - And much more
With cover praise from Reverend Canon Mpho Tutu van Furth, the book includes inspiration from The Book of Forgiving, which Tutu co-wrote with her father, Nobel Peace Prize recipient Archbishop Desmond Tutu — sharing wisdom that humanity desperately needs for healing the racial divides in current times.
“In a world that can feel divided and disconnected, everyone wants a quick fix to solve their personal issues,” Browne added. “It’s not easy to just ‘get over’ something that has hurt us deeply. But with the right mindfulness tools, we can enjoy a daily lifestyle of personal awareness and wellness.”
