A memoir. A story of one man’s journey into hip-hop. Messages of life and love and loss.
We begin this heart-wrenching story with a dedication to a little black dog named Pedey, who helped save the author’s life.
It’s a real, raw look at the ups and downs of life, from the perspective of someone who may have had more than their fair share of the downs, but never quit. We learn how important it is to know that no matter what happens, life keeps rolling on. And we need to roll with it.
Next, we get a sweet and heartfelt story of Jacobie’s hug. We learn the importance of getting the stress off your chest.
Next is the best inside the brain. A raw look at alcoholism and addiction and the freeing feeling of being sober.
And then we venture into a path of healing with the author. Rehab, rewiring the brain, learning to heal… it’s a difficult journey, but a brave one.
New friends. New outlook on life. New coping skills.
A lifechanging journey.
The ending of one phase of life, and the beginning of another.
This book was hard to read at times, especially if you or someone you love has struggled with addiction, but it’s so inspiring too. Reading this made me feel so grateful for my life and my loved ones. It reminded me to take time to appreciate the little things, to keep my head up, and keep doing my best day in and day out.
We don’t know how many days we’re going to get in this life, so we need to make the most of it.
