Synopsis: Based on a phenomenally popular blog post, a simple and counterintuitive approach to finding true joy

When Luminita Saviuc, founder the PurposeFairy blog, posted a list of things to let go in order to be happy, she had no idea that it would go viral, shared more than 1.2 million times and counting. Based on that inspiring post, this heartfelt book gives readers permission to give up--that is, to let go of the bad habits that are holding them back from achieving authentic happiness and living their best lives. Lessons include:

·         Give Up the Past
·         Give Up Your Limiting Beliefs
·         Give Up Blaming Others
·         Give Up the Need to Always Be Right
·         Give Up Labels
·         Give Up Attachment

Simple yet wise, and informed by the author's own inspiring personal journey, this liberating little book presents a fresh twist on happiness advice: take a step back to reflect, and give yourself permission to let things go. Includes a foreword by Vishen Lakhiani, New York Times-bestselling author of The Code of the Extraordinary Mind and founder and CEO of Mindvalley.
