This is a story of hope. Expressing your feelings shouldn't make life dangerous. Knowing yourself and how you feel is not delusional, stupid, or foolish. Your feelings are not your fault. Have you ever felt wrong and lonely, lacking love and kindness in your life? Have you ever fought your way out of a bad situation, only to find yourself in another?
This story is for you.
In this emotionally vulnerable book, Marci Brockmann reveals how growing up under the strain of mental abuse was mirrored in her subsequent personal relationships. She didn't know anything different. After repeated mistakes and huge anguish over her mother's opiate addiction and mental illness, she learned to embrace her own power and took control of her life. She learned that by living her truth, she would always be free!
With empathy and transparency, Marci tells a story that is at once typical and burdened by toxicity. She discovered her resilience and who she is through soul searching, therapy, and creative expression to prove how amazing life and love can truly be when you give yourself PERMISSION TO LAND.
Join her on this lifetime adventure.
The title came from a metaphor Marci used to describe how she felt when she was at her most emotionally and spiritually lost. She felt like an airplane endlessly circling an airport waiting for permission to land.
What she learned through my journey is that she didn't need anyone's permission to land or create a life or love, home and belonging. Much like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz, she had the power to create that for herself all along.
It was up to her, just as it is up to each of us.
