Open Heart: Your Life Your Choice by Jan Campbell – Book Review

If you are ready to take responsibility for your circumstances, if you’re tired of being a victim, if you are willing to accept that making different choices is the only way you are going to receive different results, then you need to run, not walk, to the nearest book store and grab Your Life Your Choice by Jan Campbell.

We have all been hurt from bad choices we’ve made in the past. Jan artfully speaks to those bruised places with wisdom and effectiveness to help us walk out of that wounded place! She writes from her heart and from personal experience in a very honest and candid fashion. It’s this raw honesty about her own bad choices and the consequences that came with them that, early on, establishes a level of trust and a willingness from the reader to listen to what she has to say and to learn the lessons that she learned the hard way.

Throughout the book, Jan challenges us to be open and honest with ourselves and offers helpful suggestions and action steps for us to take in order to move through the hurts and harmful habits that we unknowingly bestowed upon ourselves as we made impaired decisions. She helps us identify the areas that have shaped us but that we may have overlooked while caught up in our self-defeating patterns.  In a loving, non-judgemental manner, she forces us to look deep inside ourselves and to assume responsibility for our part in our hurting and brokenness.

Slowly and gently, we are pulled out of our self-made wreckage and as we ultimately come to the realization and finally accept that we are the ones getting in our own way, a surprising thing happens – we actually feel relieved. For once, we see a way beyond the life situation that we have brought upon ourselves. That’s because we now know that the key to unlock the battered door belongs to the one thing that we had control of all along – ourselves.

Your Life Your Choice is an absolute must for anyone who is ready to stop blaming others and take responsibility for their life, who truly wants to make their next choice, the right choice.
