Book Review: Butter Side Up
Butter Side Up: How I Survived My Most Terrible Year and Created My Super Awesome Life is not self-help jargon; it is edutainment for the soul. Jane Enright’s true story of surviving three life-altering events in the span of twelve months, losing everything, and coming out the other end stronger and more resilient than ever before is compelling and riveting—and full of sage advice for how to do the same. A feel-good story that everyone can relate to and learn from, Butter Side Up shows that there can be happiness and joy after unplanned change—and a super awesome life, too.
Wow, I was not sure what to expect from this book, but it was not the numerous "ah ha" moments that I had while reading this book. In fact, I was not halfway done before I was taking pictures of quotes and sending them to my mom. It was just what she and I needed.
My mom a few months ago was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer. It has and still continues to be a shock and hard to work through. I go with my mom to her chemo treatments. She is halfway completed with her treatments. Just a few more than surgery. It has been hard for my mom to stay positive at times, so as I was reading this book the "unplanned" situation that Jane experienced had happened in our lives.
The quotes were spot on to just what I and my mom needed to stay positive. Even after finishing this book, I will probably refer back to it again and again for inspiration. I look forward to reading Jane's next book that releases in the fall.
