All That Is Bitter and Sweet: A Memoir – Ashley Judd

 Excerpt from Good Reads article:   All That Is Bitter and Sweet: A Memoir by Ashley Judd, Maryanne Vollers. Ashley Judd is an award-winning film and stage actor known for her roles in both box-office hits and art-house gems, and the daughter and sister of country-music royalty. In 2002, drawing on a deep well of empathy forged by a painful childhood, she found her true calling: as a humanitarian and advocate for those suffering in neglected parts of the world.

Asked why she was opting out of a successful career, walking away while she was one of the highest-paid women in Hollywood, Ashley herself could not provide an answer. She simply knew that after her first trip to the notorious brothels, slums, and hospices of southeast Asia, her own life depended on advocating on behalf of the vulnerable.

See Ashley on the “The View”

The Way I See It: So Ashley, wasn’t truly fulfilled and decided to take her pain and do something with it, it is amazing how such stories are so inspiring. When you read and know more and more about people journeys, not only about the suffering and pain they went through but about “how” they decided and “when” they decided to change it, to turn it to something else. Something, that gives hope, help and inspiration to other. How they chose to release it all in different shapes and vibes….You can’t do anything but just be inspired. Really… it’s not about suffering it’s all about what you will do with it….? Will you leave it sitting there deep inside you to poison your present and future life? Will you leave it inside you building layers after layers of bitterness, unhappiness, anger, shame, frustration, limitation and regrets? Or you will decide to release it and do something about it? …it’s your call, it’s your memoir that you are writing …hope we can read it someday and be inspired by “how you did it”….

Love & Lights
