A Book About Resilience

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life. That word is love.

Holly Elissa Bruno’s new book, Happiness is Running Through the Streets to Find You, is all about resilience. As she tells her story of overcoming the challenges she’s faced in her own life, she writes: "I had to reclaim my life…Loving requires surrendering the illusion of 'control.'"

She shares this advice from her own learnings: "We do not waste time judging ourselves or each other. When I am hurting, I ask for help. When I am happy, I share my joy...

I have choices. I can’t go wrong by being authentic and by inviting others to be true to themselves. When I mess up or fall into blind spots, I can learn. I can recover and I don’t have to heal alone."
