Fierce Joy

Fierce Joy, Susie Caldwell Rinehart’s memoir that she penned as she recovered in the hospital from a double craniotomy, is phenomenal. Her writing style is fast-paced and fun, but Susie also dives deep into questions so many of us face in life: what are our internal motivators and who is driving??? Susie’s health story is absolutely surreal, and her perspectives on perfection; vulnerability; hearing, and then learning to tone down our inner judging voice; and life in general are authentic and totally relatable. This is a book I will go back to again and again to remind myself of the wisdom she shares and her compassionate approach to living a full, courageous life. The book is like having a really good friend who totally gets you come to visit.
