Making It In High Heels

Inspiring Stories by Women for Women of All Ages

Lisa Bradburns entry in Making It In High Heels is one full of complexity.  She touches on several life altering circumstances with maturity, understanding and acceptance.  Lisa has experienced some of life’s toughest challenges, and has emerged self confidant, open and forgiving.

From adoption, addiction and parental divorce, to traveling, love, long distance romance, fate, healing and forgiveness;I certainly felt the heaviness of Lisa’s story.

So many of us face circumstantial misfortune in our lives, which often stems from our childhood experiences and the adults around us.  This is exactly what Lisa writes of.  She clearly recalls emotions, thoughts and choices she made from teen years into adulthood.  Lisa touches on love found, love lost, and everything in between.

~ With age, my harshness has softened as I understand their humanness; especially when visualizing my parents’ own periods of immense growth post marital breakup.  It can be a dangerous game to fantasize over who I would be if another couple walked into that waiting room so many years back.  I am who I am through them, through thick and thin.~

In many cases of personal tragedy, no matter what it is, we are forced to look deep inside to find strength to pull us out of despair, to set us back up on our feet, and to find the desire to fight back.  The fight to overcome tough times is often done with the help of inspiration.  Lisa shares how she found hers.

Upon reading Monica Starr’s chapter, I instantly realized how we are all shaped by circumstance.  It is what we learn from tragedy, and how open we are to acceptance that allows us to grow and to carry on.

Monica’s story revolves around young love, dreams, and fate.  She takes you on an incredible journey thru a very personal and challenging period of her life in such a way that you can not help but feel her emotion each step of the way.

~Brady had called me at 2:10 that day to tell me he was almost home.  Less than five minutes later, a truck crossed the center line.  They collided head-on in a mess of metal and glass. Our worst fear had come true.  One of us was in a car accident, and there was nothing either of us could do. I prayed over and over for God to let him be okay. ~

Once again, I am tempted to write more, but seeing as the book is yet to be released,  I do not want to give too much away!  All I can say is that if you have ever been faced with a personal tragedy, which has caused you to lose a little faith, you simply MUST read Monica’s story.
