Life’s a Journey: Hardships to Blessings is a motivational book by Colten J. Skinner. Having been born with A-T, a disorder affecting coordination and the immune system, Colten would go on to live a difficult life. His later bout with cancer complicated his life further. But Colten, despite it all, goes on living life to the fullest. In his book, he takes his reader down memory lane from when he was a child to an adult while sharing his experiences as someone living with A-T. Colten’s story goes on to prove that there are blessings around every corner, should you welcome them, and that your hardships can never outweigh your blessings.
Colten J. Skinner’s conversational style of writing got me invested in his story and his outlook on what living should be all about early on in Life’s a Journey. The constant positive messages sprinkled throughout the book made it even more of an endearing read for me, and Colten’s positivity during all that he went through was inspiring. His positive outlook through his battle with cancer and his will to never give up constantly motivated me to overcome my very own tribulations. Something else that I loved about the book, besides it being very motivational, was how interesting Colten’s story was. Colten has lived an amazing life and he tells it with such contagious passion that I couldn't help but join in with a smile or laugh of my own as I read. Overall, this is a must-read for anyone who’s looking for a bit of motivation in their own life.
