Ms. Magazine: “Untamed”: Brave Means Living From the Inside Out
|Book Review: Reading Glennon Doyle’s memoir, Untamed, is diving into an adventure of what we can become. We collectively grow stronger as we are more willing to ask hard questions. Many of us feel caged in our roles and Doyle asks us, “Will we be brave enough to unlock ourselves?” She tells us that “imagination is how personal and worldwide revolutions begin.” If we are looking for the easy way, we may miss our best lives. It might be terrifying to go after our dreams—but worth it.|
