I need to own this one, highlight the heck out of it, add little tabs to like each page, dog ear and note the heck out of it! I didn't feel uplifted and inspired, which was my goal in reading this. Allowing this into your consciousness will not keep you from your suffering, but it will help you survive the next day.

Instead, I felt that a dour Cheryl Strayed was lecturing me on all the ways I was failing to make the most of my life—this in spite of the fact that in her intro, Cheryl expressly says this was not what she was trying to do. Thank you for being here.
The good news is that the book is super short. There is no dust jacket, so the cover feels like canvas, but the vibrant green with I'm a big fan of Cheryl Strayed. It can be incredibly hard, goal setting. Brave Enough is basically a prettily-packaged collection of quotes taken from Strayed's books, essays, and talks formatted in big text and centered on the page. Her words are gracious, understanding, challenging, and life-giving, and you will find more freedom and more courage by the time you reach the last page.

Strayed expresses her passion for quotes because she understands the power of words and the intrinsic human need for renewed encouragement and motivation. You go on by being true. You go on by being generous. I didn't realize it was a collection of inspirational quotes, or I would have run for the hills.

It's my appreciation of their very usefulness that compelled me to put together this book. To those trolls out there…never mind, we all have better things to do with our lives. The bright green cover is a good reminder of that. One quote to a page, though some are a paragraph long.
Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail, of course, is great. There was always only one. I only was tortured for one sitting.
