↠´ Any Ordinary Day: Blindsides, Resilience and What Happens After the Worst Day of Your Life ↠´ Download by ☆ Leigh Sales I read this for my Bookclub It is definitely not a book I would have chosen because unsurprisingly it deals with tragedies I cried a fair bit However, I ve given it 5 because Leigh Sales analysis and journalistic endeavours to constantly dig deeper and ask difficult questions were exceptionally appealing and made great reading I dreaded starting each chapter because I knew I would find out about a new tragedy, but she managed to use each story to demonstrate a lesson learned, not in a preachy way but in a real way It s not like she discovered in her research a magic pill that made pain and suffering go away, but she does identify important takeaways Great summary at the end of the book, leaving readers with a positive message It was a challenging book to re Leigh Sales Is One Of Australias Most Respected Journalists As The Anchor Of The ABCs Flagship Current Affairs Program, , She Has Interviewed Dozens Of World Leaders And Celebrities, Including Hillary Clinton, Tony Blair, Henry Kissinger, The Dalai Lama, Paul McCartney, Patti Smith, Harrison Ford, Leonardo DiCaprio And Julie Andrews She Has Interviewed Every Living Australian Prime Minister And Also Anchors The ABCs Federal Election Coverage Leigh Is The Winner Of Two Walkley Awards, Australias Highest Journalism Honour The Author Of The books DetaineeAnd On Doubt And The Co Host Of A Popular Podcast Called Chat , LooksWith Annabel Crabb This is an absolutely heart wrenching and inspirational all at once I found myself highlighting many sections of the book and saw a pattern begin to emerge Each of these survivors have gone on to find happiness in the day to day, simply because they know from experience that life can change or stop at any moment So many of us are stuck in the daily grind and are just existing rather than living and experiencing, so it was an excellent wake up call for me Happiness isn t a big goal to strive towards in some unknown future, it s in the now. This was such an interesting and thought provoking read. Leigh Sales examines the phenomenon of sudden tragic events in life that can come along and completely blindside us By talking to a lot of wonderful people who ve been there, often with the world watching their personal tragedy, she find the wisdom to be learned How do we make the days count, how do we deal with the uncertain whims of chance or fate, how do we heal broken hearts Although this books examines tragedy, it feels very uplifting and inspiring It makes me want to spendof my life cherishing the precious joys of life and all of those moments that come between birth and death with the people I am sharing it with. I bought this book on recommendation from one of my favorite authors, Kerri Sackville, and I am so so glad I did This is such an important book and reading it I went through a number of emotions Terrifying, uplifting, devastating, wonderful this book is written warmly and honestly and as soon as I got to the end I wanted to read it again. Buy this book You won t regret it. This excellent book should be read by everyone It will particularly resonate with those who have suffered traumatic loss, and those who love them The stories told are powerful and Leigh s own story is given with humility and honesty.
Speaks about the scariest, most painful and traumatic incidents and possibilities in a warm, non harrowing, deeply comforting way Somehow, this is not confronting No wallowing, no mawkishness, no indulging in the morbid Sensible, sensitive, thoughtful insights about how people go on in the face of what we dread the most Very readable and I never read stuff like this I avoid like the plague any writings on these subjects. I didn t cry once and I m a crier and am dealing with the worst loss I will ever have Includes magnificent interviews Very highly recommended. I was in the middle of reading this book on 15th March a week ago on a very ordinary day , when disaster struck in the early afternoon in the Mosque in Christchursh New Zealand where I live and 50 people were killed and manywere injured when a man opened fire with a semi automatic weapon I think that reading this book at the time went a small way towards protecting my thoughts from the terrible trauma It is a very interesting read, and kept me interested by going from one survivor of a trauma to the next, across a wide range of people, and ways of coping.
