For those of us who are Christians, we have often told stories and sung songs about the "Twelve Days of Christmas." I've given some thought to how I can reach out and give a gift to many people this holiday season, regardless of what holidays they choose to celebrate. I believe in the human spirit and its ability to triumph over even the most formidable of challenges. In order to active that strength within us, we have to choose our way to triumph.As many of you have noticed, I am an author. I'm still getting used to this idea, since I only think of myself as an artist, here to share beauty with the world. There is also a beauty inside of you, just as there is within us all. I am including a promo code below, used to download a free copy of my ebook as your gift from me this holiday. It is about finding hope, strength, and a clarity-- pushing away dark clouds and seeing the light that has been there all along. You can use the code below to download a copy direct from my publisherI wish each of you the happiest of holidays. Although I am certainly not perfect, nor is my life, I can say that I finally know who I am and what I am worth. Years ago, I would have called anyone crazy who thought I would ever think that, let alone be sharing it with thousands of others. You deserve to see yourself clearly, as a person of worth, as someone capable of change, capable of meaningful accomplishments. You deserve to see yourself as a person who can overcome, and not just survive. Even if you are the most skeptical of skeptics (as most certainly I was about my life), I challenge you right here, right now, to read about the possibility of seeing yourself, others, and the world differently. The code entitles you to a free copy to read; what have you got to lose?I hope that as you take the time to read and understand, that you will pass along the lessons you learn, feelings you experience, and the love you have in your heart. When we uplift one another, the whole world benefits. If you are grateful for this gift, I only ask that you look at all the good people in your own life, and thank them for the goodness they have each bestowed upon you. We all have so much to be grateful for, even if we may not have all of what we need or want. It's still important to recognize the ways we are blessed.Merry Christmas, happiest of holidays, and may this new year be the one where you see the great person in you more clearly than ever!Most sincerely,David William DolbergAuthor of Taking Back Your Life: Learning to Overcome Obstacles to HappinessPROMO CODE: 12DaysofChristmasNOTE: Some people have noticed that Kindle (Mobi version) does not automatically recognize the book file once downloaded onto a phone.

Otherwise, there are apps available to open the other various versions.
