The words of Dr. Dua, written as he was facing his own mortality at what should have been the prime of his life, are impactful and inspiring. When we're young, it's so easy to think we're immortal, that pain and suffering and endless hospital treatments are for the elderly.
Dr. Dua reminds us that tremendous hardship and suffering can happen to anyone at any time. The idea that we're protected by youth is an illusion. At the same time, we need not be ruled by fear or resentment. A sense of peace can be achieved if we change our perspective.
What we can learn from his experience: we are not guaranteed tomorrow. So how can we make the most of today? Are we focused on what really matters? What regrets would we have if this were our last day? A beautifully written, thought-provoking piece.
Sometimes, the very thing we need comes to us at just the right time. Dr. Dua's book is one of those things. It's more than a series of blogs, it's a reminder that even when things are at their worst, everything isn't lost because we can always find happiness, support, and love when we need it most.
I'm still crying, but that's how you know this is a fantastic book. "Life Interrupted" is a legacy of hope, strength, and the ability to find peace in even the worst situations. It's a work of art, but it's also a work that says we are more than an illness, we are more than the things we take for granted, and we should live the legacy we want to leave.
This collection will make you feel all the things in the best ways. It's beautifully insightful, it's clever, and, overall, it's gorgeous and hard to put down. Whether you've experienced loss or not, it's a necessary perspective that helps us grow as people from a beautiful soul.
