What would you say if someone asked you to tell them your life story? Would it be a story you would be excited to tell? Is it a story of conviction, courage, and joy? For most people, it is not. In her earlier years, author Debbie Ford was constantly battling drug addiction and feelings of worthlessness. It was during a session of group therapy in rehab when a flash of insight hit her like a slap across the face. She realized that the stories people in the group were telling -- including her own -- had become repetitive tales that people had scripted themselves into and that they couldn't move beyond the roles they had created for themselves. They were all taking their individual tales of woe as the ultimate "truth" about who they were, who they are, and who they could become.
Delving into and working through her own story, she realized that in the heart of it, of every person's story, lies a great secret. And that secret is "the key to unleashing our magnificence." Through journaling exercises, rituals, and meditations that are provided at the end of each chapter, you, too, will learn to embrace and let go of your own story. In the process you will unearth your own secret, the light that has been long and carefully buried. (Jennifer Forman)
