About the book
Haroldene Tshienda presents an honest account of her experiences and life-lessons through original poetry and prose. This book is as authentic as she is in her love for God and the passion she has for encouraging others. Each piece is as unedited as possible so that the reader is able to relate on a more personal and conversational level.
The stories and poems in this book have helped me take my setbacks and turn them into comebacks. All of us have issues that make us feel trapped or limited in some way or another: maybe anger, depression, grief anxiety or fear. It may be as debilitating as addiction or life-threatening illnesses, but no matter how deep the issue is, no matter how much you have struggled with it, the possibility exists for you to become absolutely free, whole and healed. This book is a journey towards freedom and revolution. I believe that everyone is capable of finding the root of their issues, resolving them completely letting them go and setting themselves free to live a life at their full potential, as a full expression of their true self. Natural healing is a humbling and profoundly transformative process, as I have experienced through heartaches, rejection, suicide attempts, fear and humiliation in just three years of my life. Since then, I have uncovered a boundless joy and freedom that has been my constant daily experience. This has become the most priceless gift in my life.
