From the Forward of this most empowering book:
“The Pearls of Wisdom Project seeks to INSPIRE, ENCOURAGE & UPLIFT. Women are simply amazing and we’ve all learned valuable lessons along our life journey… experiences that are worth sharing. This book is essentially everyday women sharing with everyday women. Every page is filled with nuggets of wisdom that will probably not be found in a school textbook or taught in a classroom. Each “pearl” represents the core essence of various life experiences of different women from all walks of life. My hope is that these special “pearls of wisdom” will touch your heart, awaken your spirit, perhaps make you laugh, an ultimately serve as a source of guidance and support on your life journey.”
Peace, Love & Blessings,
Tanya Douglas-Holland Md MPH
If you are willing to take down the walls of judgement and competition with one another, you can open up a vast arena of knowledge and understanding about who you are and why you are as you are that you can never tap in any other way.Barbara Jacoby: From the back cover of The Pearls Of Wisdom Project
This book is a perfect representation of all that embodies the woman affectionately called Dr. Tanya. My first “encounter” with her dates back to 2012 when she contacted me to ask whether I would be willing to share my story for a feature that she hosted at that time titled “Wonderful Wednesdays”. It was the first time that someone acknowledged my cancer and domestic violence journeys and the work that I had been doing for more that 4 years to inspire and give hope to women who were traveling a similar path. Her reaching out to me served as such a catalyst as it was exactly what I needed to push forward and work harder to continue the journey that I had envisioned as the reason for the Let Life Happen website.[pro_ad_display_adzone id=”397348″]
Now, here we are more than 4 years later and are now privileged to have available to us such a special book to which women everywhere and from all walks of life have gladly contributed the “pearls of wisdom” that they have learned during their lives. And Dr. Tanya is the perfect person to have conceived this idea and present it to all of us. In its simplistic format, we are given a unique collection of life lessons that, if we can truly embrace them, will lead us to knowing true happiness in our lives. It doesn’t matter what we may have experienced and the depths of despair we may have reached. If we are willing to let go of the past and embrace the wisdom of a wonderful group of women who have known the same challenges and experiences that we all face at one time or another in our lives, we can change our present and future.
Therefore, I send out my greatest thanks and deepest gratitude to Dr. Tanya for engineering this project and for giving us an opportunity to help others, men and women alike, to understand that they are not alone in the challenges that they may be facing and that there is help and guidance available from others who care to make a difference.
I truly encourage everyone to obtain their own copy of the book and perhaps even purchase an extra copy to give to someone that they know who might really need that extra support right now.
The book can be purchased from the publisher at Outskirts Press or from Amazon and “all proceeds from the book will go directly towards supporting self-care in women”. It seems to me that all of us are the winners from this project.
