The Must-Read Book Club


Mika Oakes: I discovered this through a recommendation from a friend.

YCNYC: Favorite quote?​

MO: "The sense of being trapped is an illusion. We are not controlled by circumstances, our past, the expectations of others, or our unhealthy expectations of ourselves. We can choose what feels right for us without guilt. We have options. Peace and serenity may be uncomfortable. At one time, fear may have been appropriate and useful. We have relied on fear to protect ourselves, much the way soldiers in a war rely on fear to help them survive."

YCNYC: What one person would you recommend this book to?

MO: Any one person who is experiencing a sense of chaos in their world, that leaves them feeling lost. The Language of Letting Go is a wonderful read for those that need gentle reminders and/or tools of how to soften after hardening, how to let of control when no control can be had, and a great reminder of coming back to self care and love.
