How I found a little Awesomeness – Book Review

You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome LifeYou Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Normally I avoid self-help books like they’re toxic waste, but this one was good, funny, and what I needed in the moment. Yes I was a white woman reading a book by a white privileged woman, but it gave me the momentum to get out of my slump. Would read again.

I don’t use all the tips. I still haven’t tried meditating for example, but I keep positive reminders around, and try to think of a few things to be grateful for each day. I’m still not a fan of self-help, as it’s permeated with privilege, but this book is a good reminder to stay in the present, and believe that my dreams are possible.
