Release Date: October 27, 2015

Goodreads Synopsis
Around the world, thousands of people have found inspiration in the words of Cheryl Strayed, who in her three prior books and in her "Dear Sugar" columns has shared the twists and trials of her remarkable life. Her honesty, spirit, and ample supply of tough love have enabled many of us, even in the darkest hours, to somehow put one foot in front of the other--and be brave enough.

This book gathers, each on a single page, more than 100 of Strayed's indelible quotes and thoughts--"mini instruction manuals for the soul" that urge us toward the incredible capacity for love, compassion, forgiveness, and endurance that is within us all.

Be brave enough to break your own heart.
You can't ride to the fair unless you get on the pony.
Keep walking.
Acceptance is a small, quiet room.
Romantic love is not a competitive sport.
Forward is the direction of real life.
Ask yourself: What is the best I can do? And then do that.

My ARC of Brave Enough was sitting on my night stand for about 3 weeks before I finally read it. The day I decided to pick up the book was a terrible day. My kids were sick the night before, I arrived at my office WITHOUT my laptop and I left my keys at home. Needless to say, that evening I was exhausted. After I put the kids down to bed, I just needed a bit of quiet time and a good book.

Enter Cheryl Strayed...

Brave Enough was not what I expected at all. It is a collection of quotes that will both motivate and inspire you. Each page brings about a sentence or paragraph that will leave you reflecting about your life, your decisions and your relationships. Brave Enough great read for a rainy day and the perfect book to gift to a friend or loved one.
