“This is an extremely painful and uncomfortable book. The author's father committed suicide when she was only 13 years old, leaving behind a wife and four children. Obviously, the struggle to go on with life, to find joy again, wasn't easy. The author writes to her dad as a way to heal, wondering if he can hear her words from wherever he is. She wisely understands that she will never truly know why he committed suicide but she also knows that she was irrevocably transformed by this act.
Our sufferings throughout life have brought us to this very moment. Every adversity has given us a different soul from the moments before the unthinkable. Those moments transform us and leave us never the same. The challenges life forces us to endure, many times will leave us broken and feeling hopeless. Our perspective alters and either leave us feeling challenged to prove to ourselves life will be enjoyable again or so shattered we are unable to move forward.
No matter the size or importance of anyone’s individual challenge, they still can seem like a huge mountain to overcome. When dealing with different types of obstacles, people who do not hold optimism in esteem can quickly fall into despair and a downward spiral of negativity. Climbing back out of this seemingly endless pit adds yet another challenge onto the one already being faced. Even if one does not take this path, the challenges that life may bring can put strain on things like personal relationships, occupations, and even physical and mental health. It seems that everyone on this planet is continuously looking for a way to ease this tension when facing problems.

She uses every day examples of life ups and downs, and she provides a yogic perspective on how to navigate through it
Albert Einstein said, “In the middle of every difficulty lies an opportunity.” I used to be skeptical about this quote, that nothing positive could possibly come out of any hardship. But I was proven wrong as I learned how to overcome difficult situations that helped me mature. As a child I always had an idea that if you were a good person, only good things would happen to you. At the age of eight, the only problem kids should have to face was what toy they wanted with their kids’ meal. During that age, I was forced to face a more complex obstacle; both my parents were incarcerated and taken away from me. Just when I thought I was living a normal childhood, I had to realize how harsh the real world was like.
As a young girl growing up the secrets, confessions and stories were endless and became my daily life. I became the open diary that everyone needed, whether it was a family stranger or family .I came from a place where
During the marvelous summer of 2008 in the quiet, little town of Gladstone, Oregon lived a 6 year old girl who went by Kiera. Kiera Ciano was her name, that’s me, and I absolutely adored Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup. The taste, the texture, the smell, all of it, was simply incredible.
Life is not always a straight path, and most of the time there are ridiculous obstacles in the way. Individuals handle life differently than others. Certain people handle problems badly, but others handle problems just fine. Some acceptable ways people overcome adversity is by embracing differences, having a positive attitude, and persevering to get through the obstacles/problems.
I knocked on the door to the LeBeouf manor, looking up at the grand entryway. There was a small light hanging over the front door from the porch above, as there were indeed two stories of wrap-around porch. The door was ornate and made of a solid wood, and the handle was a brass. This really was a antique, and just being able to stand in the entrance was an experience.
