International Bestselling Author Shares How to Love Yourself More After You've Hit Rock Bottom, Been Trampled and Gone Through the Wringer

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ Life is full of experiences that shape us as individuals and change who we are. Rather than breaking us, traumatic experiences can make us stronger and more beautiful than ever. That is the premise of Rani St. Pucchi's just-released book, Gold in the Cracks: Move From Shattered to Whole and Reveal Your Light.

St. Pucchi, best known as a trend-setting fashion designer for 30+ years, developed the philosophy after dressing more than 20,000 women in her career. In her new book, she applies the Japanese concept of Kintsugi, in which broken pieces of pottery are repaired using powdered gold, to people. In Kintsugi, the reworked object is considered even more beautiful and precious because it was broken.

"We are all broken and every break has left a wound," St. Pucchi says. "Every wrinkle is a roadmap of our life journey, every scar a solemn decoration. It is up to us to stay broken or gather our pieces and choose to become whole again."

St. Pucchi shares:

  • How a present given to her in 1989 that remained unopened for 29 years inspired her to write her new book.
  • Why no one has to remain stuck in their history or resign themselves to a mediocre life.
  • How to identify the limiting beliefs that are holding you back.
  • Ways we are all capable of making new discoveries about ourselves, our families and colleagues, our history, and reframing our stories.

St. Pucchi says Gold in the Cracks is not just a book to read but a life plan to follow; the text is complemented by insightful questions, beautifully presented analogies and stories, worksheets for journaling your thoughts, and affirmations to use as a simple, powerful tool to invite happiness into your life.
