Micro (Non)Memoir Review

Three Things I Learned from Reading Jen Sincero’s You are a Badass

Running Press, $16, ISBN 978-0-7624-4769-5, 2013

  1. She calls gratitude the gateway drug to awesomeness.  I might not use those terms, but I would be just as dramatic. It’s the key to being happy.  

  2. I was reminded that our reality is created by our perception. It’s up to us to decide what we want to focus on and how we decide to interpret life events. Talk about life simplified.

  3. She talks about people being mirrors of ourselves. When things bother us about someone else, it’s because it reminds us of something in ourselves that we don’t like. I think about this every time somebody cuts me off in traffic and raises my anger level 1000%.
