A heart-healing guide to forgiveness, apologies, and mindful tools for peace from Kelly Browne, go-to gratitude expert and author of the bestselling thank-you book series, 101 Ways to Say Thank You.
In a world that can feel divided and disconnected, everyone wants a quick fix to solve their personal issues. But sometimes it’s not so easy to just “get over” something that has hurt us deeply. With the right mindfulness tools—meditation, reflection, and the spirit of intention—we can enjoy a daily lifestyle of personal awareness and wellness. The practice of mindful forgiveness encourages us to disempower resentment by releasing the offending incident, rendering it powerless and helping us to move toward healing and peace.
