Very inspirational reading, so happy about you and your dad too.
Highly recommend this book - an incredible story about overcoming and finding ones true purpose. #hvwib
Through sharing her journey Lauree Ostrofsky hopes that her readers will take on the “scared and doing it anyway” approach. Her words console what is broken in each of us. They wrap us in her embrace as she asks us to love ourselves even more for facing our failings and fears. Her story encourages us to give what we have - all of it, and to demand more for ourselves knowing we deserve it.
This book makes me hurt for the friend I didn't know struggled so deeply and hurt for my own fears. But it also makes me grateful that I have such a companion to lean on.
Through Lauree's courage in the face of a brain tumor, and not one, but three brain surgeries, I found insights into what it means to forgive, to love, to let go and ultimately, to love oneself by loving others.
As we are led through the various obstacles and victories the author faces, the book speaks to the resiliency of not only the physical body, but of the ability to keep going in the face of surmounting challenges.
We all have our "white blobs." Some are bigger than others. Lauree's story exemplified for me that we always have the ability to let go and see what the blobs have to show us. If we do, we may find our lives changed for the better.
