Awakening Wisdom Through Stories of Inspiration, Challenge and Possibility (Thinking Positive Book, Ladies Birthday Gift, and Readers of I Will Not Die an Unlived Life)
An inspirational book that shines a light on how each person carries a possibility that the rest of us need. Instead of hugs, Dawna Markova’s midwife grandmother used to kiss the unique marks at the very end of her fingertips, calling them “promise prints.” She said that the moment each of us is born life makes a promise to the world that only we can fulfill. Nourished by this wisdom, Dawna grew to understand that discovering how you matter is what makes it possible for you to love your unique existence. Living A Loved Life is a particularly important book in these dark and fragmented times when so many of us have become convinced that they really can’t and don’t make a difference.
