The author is giving away an autographed book to the reader who posts the most thought-provoking answer to this question:
Oftentimes the objects we hold onto contain cryptic clues that point towards something deeper about ourselves. Take a look around your house (or your room) at the things with which you have surrounded yourself. Is there anything you are still hanging onto that seems to contain a hidden message for you?
A book went to Karelle who commented:
In my kitchen I saw the wok that my mother gave me so many years ago and was reminded of the feeling I carried around for so long that she was still trying to control me from the grave. When I was bringing up my daughter I would think about what my mother would do and then I would do the exact opposite. Now I’m reminded of all the things she told me that turned out to be true.
