Life Happens’ covers all of those topics and offers an example of what can happen to the human form – and even one’s spirit – if a more positive and proactive stance is not adopted in life
SARASOTA, Fla. (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
In her new inspirational memoir “Life Happens: It’s How You Let It Shape You That Matters” (published by Balboa Press), author Alivia Cahill shares her underdog story of overcoming major obstacles in her life to give readers the confidence to persevere through their own struggles.
“Life Happens” is the story of how one woman’s inability to cope with life’s challenges led her down a destructive, painful path that included more than a decade of self-harm and physical disease. Through the onset of physical devastation, Cahill was able to realize her purpose in life: to find the cure for the disease that ailed her. She openly shares with readers the circumstances that led to self-destruction, the quest to find healing, the bumpy road to recovery, and the lessons learned along the way.
An excerpt from “Life Happens”:
“I believe that my personal journey may serve as a cautionary tale and, hopefully, it encourages positive change in the lives of others. The events of my past clearly depict how destructive thoughts and behaviors can lead to life-altering consequences – eating away at the mind, spirit, and even body – and it is my wish that by sharing my story, others will be encouraged to make healthy choices and healthy changes in life.”
Cahill hopes her story of determination and healing encourages others to keep fighting their own demons. “Sadly, bullying, eating disorders, low self-worth, and physical disease appear to be experienced at higher rates now than at any other time in history,” she says. “‘Life Happens’ covers all of those topics and offers an example of what can happen to the human form – and even one’s spirit – if a more positive and proactive stance is not adopted in life.”
