New poetry book release! Forgiveness & Peace

-- Quote of the Day --

…Forgiveness is something that you do for yourself. …Sometimes we think that in forgiving a person we are giving them power. But it is actually the other way around; you are giving your power away if you never forgive. …You need to take your power back and forgive it and that is the only way you are going to move past it. …It is simply saying ‘I don’t need this anymore, I am bigger than this and I want to take my power back and not have this person taking space in my head.’ …If you don’t – you are going to be the one that is hurting… You will not be the happy empowered, beautiful soul you were meant to be, but it will make you physically sick to. …It takes a very long time to heal deep wounds, and that is ok – but at some point there needs to be forgiveness.”
~ Sandee Sgarlata - July 9, 2009

Today's quote originated from the Inner Peace thru Forgiveness interview that aired on the July 9th broadcast on Conscious Discussions talk radio show. It was a really interesting discussion that I hope you can make time for. The archive is available free, anytime of the day - simply click on the hyper-links here to get to the Conscious Discussions talk radio show.

-- Announcement !! --

I am so very excited to let you all know that the newly revised edition of Towards Understanding is now available as an e-book via

Towards Understanding (revised edition) is a collection of 125 non-fiction poems written in chronological order. It is a true story of a young pre-teen female growing up on her own, struggling to survive, breaking the chains of inner demons & finally growing towards understanding of her value & purpose in life – but not quite reaching it. Thus the title… Towards Understanding.

The reason why I wrote the book originally was to show other victims of abuse, violence & neglect that they can live a wholesome life without baggage from the past. Second to that I wanted to provide a road-map that showed the healing process that victims go through, letting others know they are not alone. People who are involved with victims can learn what that person is going through or will go through and therefore they might be able to provide a better support system.

The original version of this book is still available in paperback & hardcover by ordering through most online or your local retailers. This new revised edition offers 5 new poems, creating an ending that I am much more comfortable with, & updated author information - among a few other revisions.

More information about the book, in it's various formats, & excerpts are available via:

Remember – when you are about to ask someone if he can keep a secret, you’re about to show him a person who can’t.
