    Thorny Tales Worth Telling: Personal Stories To Be Inspired By During Life’s Hard Times

     
    Many people will go through a hard time at one point or another in their life, but acknowledging that somebody is there for them can be difficult when it feels like they’re all alone in the world. Reading other people’s stories of personal development can help to ease their pain and a new book titled Thorns To Be Thankful For: Personal Stories of Overcoming Hard Times can help to do just that.

    Written by numerous authors who have gone through unthinkable circumstances and have come out on the other side - now stronger than ever - Thorns To Be Thankful For shows readers the power of perspective when it comes to dealing with life’s hardships.

    Co-authored by Rachel Rofé, a successful entrepreneur, and 40+ other contributors who wanted to share their stories with the world, the book was written to showcase how as Rachel puts it, “everything happens for our highest good”, despite any troubling events that may have happened either now, or in the past.

    Be Motivated and Inspired By Powerful Personal Development Stories
    Each author wrote about past events in their lives that had caused them grief and how it made them feel. Upon reflection, many writers came to the conclusion that while the event didn’t feel good at the time, it played an important part in shaping who they are in the long term, leading towards a great life lesson, or an even bigger blessing in the future.

    Many of the stories that people went through were heartbreaking or life-changing events that left them feeling devastated, trapped or hopeless. Yet it is only through recalling their personal development stories in writing that they can begin to see how valuable that life lesson was.

    The book is a testament to the idea that even if bad things have happened in the past or are still occurring, it’s possible to turn life around and make the most of a bad situation.

    Stories That Inspire Togetherness
    From facing their greatest adversity, learning to let go of what society told them to be, removing their self-limiting beliefs, or having to start all over again – each chapter is a short story in itself - a thorn that ultimately proved to be a life lesson that helped each person to grow mentally, physically and spiritually.

    “Each chapter in the book is a peek into a different person’s soul and what their life experience was like…you’ll hear their stories, feel inspired, and realize that we’re all in this together,” says Rachel, who hopes that people will be encouraged and motivated to understand that whatever life throws at them, it’s possible to come out of it with their head held high.

    Thorns To Be Thankful For: Personal Stories of Overcoming Hard Times is available on Amazon Kindle for $0.99 or for $18.99 in paperback format from Monday 24th February.
