I recently read a book that so moved me, I felt compelled to share. “Wild,” by Cheryl Strayed left me awestruck in the COURAGEOUSNESS of a young adult woman struggling through her issues (as we all do) and getting REAL on the Pacific Coast Trail with Monster (her 50+ pound backpack) ALONE.
As I read this book, I felt like Cheryl was my hero. This is what I wished I had the courage to do when I struggled in life. And in her mid-20’s? Who does this?
Without giving away the background and plot, Cheryl Strayed has many valid reasons to stray and feel lost. What she does with her issues, at such an amazingly young age is what is astonishing. I was inspired and felt the spirit of her conviction. Reading this book was such a gift and I wanted to share with others. Spreading the word.
*By the way, the movie version of “Wild” is being produced and starred in by Reese Witherspoon. It is due out in late 2014 but I would read the book first. The books are ALWAYS better.
