I bought this book honestly because I am an HUGE fan of Ledisi and if you have ever seen one of her shows, she does nothing but give out advice and words of inspiration which is why I have watched her illuminate a room 3 times. This book reflects on what has brought her to the understanding that she shares with others. The chapter on Forgiveness was what I was most touched by and it shares a story about Ledisi and her struggle to except the things she cant change. She brings forth a shot of honesty and allows people to feel her presence the same way they do her songs. The book also includes workbook space where you are encouraged to fill in the blanks that ask questions on LOVE, honesty, forgiveness, and self-worth. I love this book because when Im struggling with one of the topics I can read and know that I am not the only person who is riding the same roller coaster through life and feeling the rough patches that come along.

I learned a lot about Ledisi, I liked that she wasn't scared to express her emotions, i could tell she was being honest when sharing certain experiences and i respect her for that.

Ledisi's journey is very inspiring. She manages to give the readers an inside view of life as an artist in the often throatcut business of the entertainment industry. I'm glad she found her peace, love and power in her journey and becoming better than alright.
