So, I am totally a “real” book kind of gal. And I still hope to one day open up a used book store. But, since my wonderful husband got me an Internet tablet, I’ve been using the heck out of the eReader portion! In fact, my local library – Hawn Memorial Library, now has an eMedia Library that I’m excited to be using. You can “check” books out online and they are generally due in approximately 14 days – the same way you would in person. So far I’ve been able to sneak time in to read two (2) books. LOL
In fact, the latest one-“Restless Heart” by Wynonna Judd is the one that I wanted to talk about. Many of you know Wynonna Judd as both a solo artist as well as part of the group, The Judds. But, did you know she was a writer??? I sure didn’t! I was scanning the new release items within the eMedia Library and came across this title. I took a gander at what it was about and decided to check it out.
In short, the book is about a girl, Destiny Hart, who grows up in a military family and moves from town to town. Once her dad retires from the military and plants roots in Kentucky, Destiny finally can settle into a normal life. She was dared by one of her friends to get up and sing in front of an audience. It was then that Destiny knew what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. The book chronicles the ups and downs of making it in the music business and the strength it takes to stay your ground…no matter the cost.
What struck a chord in me was the thought that you couldn’t have it all. Meaning, if you have more than one dream, you have to choose between the two. Who says???? Yes, achieving your dreams or goals is hard work and trying to achieve more than one could be even harder to obtain, but it’s not impossible. The inner struggle that Destiny finds herself in, is one that many of us have experienced at one time or another – “Should I go for it (your dream) or should I take the road that everyone “expects” me to take?” Do you know which direction she chose???? Pick up the book and read it and find out for yourself.
What would you do if you had to make a choice between two pretty amazing dreams? Have you been in that situation before? If so, what was your ultimate decision? I would love to hear it!
