In her book, With New Eyes, Heidi shares her stories about her former boyfriend, Pierce, and her canoe-leading friend, Emma, who is fun and instigating. Further, Heidi explains why she calls her husband "RB".
At a sharp moment in her life, Heidi experiences a series of setbacks including a broken neck, getting fired via email, divorce, loss of medical compensation, and the selling of her memory-filled home. Extremely discouraged, Heidi writes about her visits with a mental-health practitioner.
With change for the better and "with new eyes", Heidi shares her triumphs including reviving scuba diving lessons, teaching English as a second language, and reconnecting with her childhood friends.
Finally, Heidi introduces the reader to Mr. Cat, Mr. Baggage, Mr. Spain, Mr. Bad Timing, Mr. Got Away, and finally Mr. Right.
I recommend With New Eyes: The Power of Perspective for anyone who is going through or has gone through setbacks in life as Heidi's book is realistic, inspirational, and motivational.
My favorite quote: "In redesigning my life, I set my GPS on happiness -- an ever-changing quality that would be evaluated on my terms." -- Heidi Siefkas
I have not yet read her first book, but she gets the reader up to speed quickly on the hardships she has learned to endure through surviving a broken neck, a failed marriage, lost of income plus more trials than anyone should have to experience in a lifetime.
The author sees her life now With New Eyes since her overwhelming struggles. She takes a trip back to Wisconsin where she grew up as a child, she finds new employment, enters the dating scene, begins to recover from financial difficulties, and takes some adventurous risks to gain her new perspective on life.
It was a fun read with short chapters. An important read for anyone who needs a new perspective on life. Offers encouragement about getting through hardships by finding a way to look up. Inspiring story for all to read. I can see another book coming to continue her memoir. Continue looking up...
Received complimentary copy of the book from Sage Blog Tours for a honest review.
Heidi really has a way with words. She makes what is originally a sad story into something beautiful, and with her own brand of humor, turns it into an inspirational story that can help anyone and everyone who reads her. To me, it's far more than just a look at what happened to her and what she has done since to create a new and better life, but a chance for others to see themselves in some of her story, even if it's drastically different. Her words spoke to my heart, and I can only hope that other people learn from her story as much as I learned.
My favorite part of the story is when she goes back to Wisconsin and sees her old home, sees her dad's cabin, and the way she describes it - as if she's looking at a doll house replica because everything seems so small compared to what she remembers. It made me think about the time that I went back and saw my grandparents' house, after years of not being there - I had felt the same way, having loved that place as a small child, and feeling like everything was just a scaled down size of the memories I had.
"Oh, how I had changed! I was Heidi 2.0, albeit with some major bugs to work out."
