Contribute Your Acceptance Story to my New Book and Receive $50 plus a Free Signed Copy!
Do you have a personal story about how you accepted someone as they are–annoying traits and all? A love one, boss, parents, or estranged sibling—even a nemesis? Or a story about how your accepting an adversity (a business failure, career setback, health issue, child’s wrongdoing, or other setback) allowed you to move forward with your life in a less stressful, more positive way?
I am currently writing another book, titled The Blessings of Acceptance, about the profound and often unexpected benefits that are bestowed upon us when we accept people and things as they are, or the “what is” in our lives. Included in the book will be true stories from individuals who have embraced the far-reaching acceptance dynamic.
Please share your acceptance story with the book’s readers, using the questions below as a guideline. If your story is selected for the book, you will receive $50 plus a signed copy of the book one month after its formal publication.
Your story should be 300-500 words. The stories may be edited to fit within the subject matter and format of the book. In order to protect your privacy, unless you specifically express otherwise, the names in the stories will be changed, and possibly other identifying factors, such as gender and location. Story guideline qustions are provided below to assist you in formulating your story.
Please send your story to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and be sure to include your name, email and mailing addresses, and telephone number.
