“Brave Enough” Is the Most Inspiring Book This Year

Portland-based writer Cheryl Strayed is not one to shy away from being honest.

In Wild, Strayed told of her soul-searching trek along the Pacific Crest Trail, which came in the wake of her divorce, her mother’s death, and a battle with heroin addiction.

In Tiny Beautiful Things, Strayed again bared her soul via a selection of letters from her “Dear Sugar” columns. The notes offered advice to those who needed it most, and Strayed’s ability to give no-holds-barred guidance earned her a spot on the New York Times bestseller list.

In summary, if you’ve read Wild or Tiny Beautiful Things, you know the magic Cheryl Strayed exudes every time she puts pen to paper.

With that in mind, we suggest you gather a few minutes of your time and check out Brave Enough, Strayed’s new book, which hits shelves today.

Brave Enough features a collection of quotes taken from Strayed’s previous writings. There are more than 100 to be found, each on a single page.

“Keep walking,” taken from Wild, no longer belongs to a hiker on the Pacific Crest Trail, but anyone who needs the courage to put one foot in front of the other and just move forward.

“Be brave enough to break your own heart,” taken first from “Dear Sugar” and now from Tiny Beautiful Things, instructs the reader to overcome fear and adversity, even if it means doing the hardest thing you’ve ever done.

In the introduction, Strayed tells us: ” I think of quotes as mini-instruction manuals for the soul.” If that’s not enough to draw you into Brave Enough, we don’t know what is.
