This is the kind of living your best, most honest, most vulnerable, most connected life-type memoir I can get behind. PEOPLE SAYING TRUE SHIT ABOUT STUFF and also about being generous and gentle with each other and ourselves. It’s very Anne Lamott, very Cheryl Strayed.
Glennon is a mother of three and former drug addict and felon. SO FUN. This kind of thing is completely my jam these days, about how like AUGH CHILDREN! SO FRUSTRATING! But also (because duh I know they are frustrating I have TWO I do not need to read a book to tell me that) about how being out of your mind at your kids is a really good place to learn about patience, and grace. I want someone to empathize with me where I am and then tell me how to do better, so good job doing exactly that.
This gif looks sarcastic but it’s not.
I am sort of over the kooky woman and her steadfast, long-suffering man but that is a very personal preference brought on MYSELF by an overindulgence of same (ugh I blame Jenny Lawson).
Gonna read a bunch of memoirs in 2016, probably! Wheeeee!
