When All Balls Drop – The Upside of Losing Everything seems to present a conundrum right from the start; for what could possibly be an ‘upside’ to losing everything?
Clues lie in quotes chosen for the book’s introduction; especially Joseph Campbell’s “We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”
The life-changing accident that author Heidi Siefkas experienced was pure chance: she was struck by a falling tree limb when leaving her apartment building, and awoke in the hospital five days later with no memory of the accident. But this is only the beginning of an odyssey that changed her life, her perspective, and her health.
While When All Balls Drop may sound like a chronicle of despair and frustration (and it does incorporate elements of these trying experiences), it’s also a powerful chronicle of ultimate change and recovery. This is its strength: pointing out the light at the end of the tunnel. How Siefkas arrives at this point makes for a powerful story of adjustment and (ultimately) newfound growth and happiness.
