Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies was a book that has been on my to be read list for a few months, but to be honest, I was over self-help books.
They all seemed the same.
When a friend in a local book club chose this book, I decided to listen to it while I walked.
I enjoyed this book because it didn’t scream self-help.
Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies by Tara Schuster Book Summary and Review
Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies Book Summary
By the time she was in her late twenties, Tara Schuster was a rising TV executive who had worked for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and helped launch Key & Peele to viral superstardom.
By all appearances, she had mastered being a grown-up. But beneath that veneer of success, she was a chronically anxious, self-medicating mess.
No one knew that her road to adulthood had been paved with depression, anxiety, and shame, owing in large part to her minimally parented upbringing.
She realized she’d hit rock bottom when she drunk-dialed her therapist pleading for help.
Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies is the story of Tara’s path to re-parenting herself and becoming a “ninja of self-love.”
Through simple, daily rituals, Tara transformed her mind, body, and relationships, and shows how to
• fake gratitude until you actually feel gratitude
• excavate your emotional wounds and heal them with kindness
• identify your self-limiting beliefs, kick them to the curb, and start living a life you choose
• silence your inner frenemy and shield yourself from self-criticism
• carve out time each morning to start your day empowered, inspired, and ready to rule
• create a life you truly, totally f*cking LOVE
This is the book Tara wished someone had given her and it is the book many of us desperately need: a candid, hysterical, addictively readable, practical guide to growing up (no matter where you are in life) and learning to love yourself in a non-throw-up-in-your-mouth-it’s-so-cheesy way.
My Book Review for Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies
Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies is a book I listened to while I walked.
If it’s non-fiction and the author reads it, I like to listen.
There are so many great points she makes in this book about life in general that most people can relate to.
I love that each chapter ended with a relatable lesson and it wasn’t sappy at all.
My Buy Yourself the F*cking Lilies Book Recommendation
This book is a great self-help book for people who are over the deep self-help books filled with lots of feelings.
If that doesn’t make sense, this book probably isn’t for you.
