Write from the Heart by Heather Hummel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book is life-affirming and positive. When we first meet Samantha, the protag, she is in the throes of yet another breakup, has quit her boring job, and is wetting her pillow with tears every night. Somehow along the way, while writing her novel and in between therapy sessions, Samantha has a dream with these words. "WRITE POSITIVE"
What follows is a miracle, but one in small baby steps. Amanda rethinks her existence and the negative self-talk that constantly spiraled around her, dooming her relationships and hampering her success. Instead she grits her teeth and determines to Write Positive every day in her Positive Journal.
Well before the halfway point, I set this book aside and started my own Positive Journal. I counted my blessings, thanked God for letting me meet Heather and buy her book, and cast negativity and worries behind me. Knowing God has a plan for me, and really trusting it are two different things. Keeping a Positive Journal and writing down my prayers and giving thanks will help me to do the best I can and leave the results to Him.
I then finished the rest of the story in a single evening. The story was full of little surprises and nuggets of truth, about serendipity, believing you deserve happiness and being content. I cheered with Samantha and shared in her happiness as she fulfills her dreams and has a brighter future to look forward too.
