Today, some sunshine in my life, good friend, Camy Tang guest blogs to share with us a preview of her third book, "Single Sashimi." Our heroine on paper has a life that most would envy, and yet she is in need to heal a part of her that is deeply wounded. Yes, this is almost like reading my autobiography.
Actually, I do have a credit in the book for helping Camy with some background information about the technology industry where are heroine roams. Welcome Camy!
Many times, we can’t move forward in life until we undergo some type of healing from our past. It doesn’t necessarily mean healing from some horrific abuse or devastating tragedy. Sometimes it’s healing from something small but significant.
I just finished reading Sunset by Karen Kingsbury. The core of the story is redemption. Things coming full circle.A couple on the brink of divorce has to undergo healing from something in their past that they thought they’d already dealt with. The man had to earnestly and honestly seek forgiveness for an act of selfishness.
It seemed like something trivial until the man realized that
his actions had deprived his wife of her last words to her father and caused
her tarnished reputation among her friends and family.
In my latest novel, Single Sashimi, my heroine seems to have
everything—great job, fabulous looks, sharp mind.
I don’t know anyone who’s had a completely pain-free life.
Some people might have more pain than others, or different types of pain.Also, people are different. An event that might cause pain
to one person might not cause pain to another. Just because you’re hurt by
something and someone else isn’t doesn’t make your pain any less valid.
But everyone can find healing so they can move on. The key
is to pinpoint what you need healing from.
Whoever you turn to, seek healing. It will probably be
painful, but it’s like ripping off a bandage—it hurts for a while, but then
it’s better to expose the wound to light and fresh air.
I’m praying that all of you reading this will find your healing. Come visit my website as I'm throwing an exciting contest right now. I'm giving away ten boxes of books and 30 copies of, Single Sashimi.
