Finding Me- Viola Davis

Bewertung 4.7
9 Std. 15 Min.


Narrated by Viola Davis

In my book, you will meet a little girl named Viola who ran from her past until she made a life-changing decision to stop running forever.

This is my story, from a crumbling apartment in Central Falls, Rhode Island, to the stage in New York City, and beyond. This is the path I took to finding my purpose but also my voice in a world that didn’t always see me.

As I wrote Finding Me, my eyes were open to the truth of how our stories are often not given close examination. We are forced to reinvent them to fit into a crazy, competitive, judgmental world. So I wrote this for anyone running through life untethered, desperate and clawing their way through murky memories, trying to get to some form of self-love. For anyone who needs reminding that a life worth living can only be born from radical honesty and the courage to shed facades and be . . . you.

Finding Me is a deep reflection, a promise, and a love letter of sorts to self. My hope is that my story will inspire you to light up your own life with creative expression and rediscover who you were before the world put a label on you.

Rezensionen zu Finding Me - Hörbuch



Wenn ich könnte, würde ich 6 Sterne vergeben. Danke für deine Wahrheit, Viola.


Ich liebe diese Frau.. so nahbar.. so inspirierend. Eine Geschichte über das Leben einer schwarzen Frau, die in Armut aufwächst und mit den täglichen Dilemma von Rassismus leben muss.. eine Geschichte über das Schicksal LEBEN wie Trauma und Ereignisse aus deiner Kindheit dich zu dem machen WAS DU BIST. Hmm Ehrlich offen und so schonlos real Meine Top 2 Stellen.. " did I claw my way out ..there's is no out every painful memory, every mentor, every friends served as a "jizzle" a lead path that has shaped me..ME" "I am no longer ashamed of me .. I OWN EVERYTHING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME.. THE PARTS THAT WHERE A SOURCE OF SHAME ARE MY WARRIOR FUEL" .. sie unterstreichen einfach nochmal, dass das Leben eine Kette von Ereignissen ist .. ich fühl doch wenn man nicht mehr kann, müde ist, gefühlt seinem Ziel nicht näher kommt und einfach emotionally platt ist. Das sind aber auch NUR Momente die vorbeigehen..woran man wächst. Joy and happiness will find you ..always. -🦓
