It goes without saying that all lives have ups and downs. It is also very apparent that some lives get hit with harder things to work through that others. I think sometimes people don’t even realize how rough they have it until they have moved past it.
I recently read Edie Wadsworth’s story, All the Pretty Things. I was blown away by the never ending struggle she went through. I knew of her as a blogger but never knew much about her background.
Edie’s story is remarkable, her memoir evoked emotions I wasn’t aware I carried so strongly. I wanted to stand up and fight for Edie as a young girl. I wanted to provide her a safe and welcome place to be.
As the story progresses I could feel the pull and struggle of decisions she was working through. I take her life story as a lesson for all. Sometimes the toughest decisions are the truly best decisions. If something doesn’t feel quite right, it probably isn’t. These may be lessons learned as a child but they were resonating through out the words of this book to me as a reminder to pay attention to the details of life and what life is telling you.
