Untamed

Untamed Glennon just posted about it on Twitter, so I opened Goodreads to read about it, and then returned to Twitter, there is a link about this book Untamed is a stunning collection of essays on feminism, spirituality, and intersectionality, just to name a few Doyle is untaming and unlearning western society s expectations of how a person should look and act accordingly, and uncovering the reason or lack thereof that we have been conditioned to think this way, the cages we unconsciously live in The Knowing inside of her guides her away from the boxes of religion and sexuality, and in turn she finds her Self, as well as the truest love she s ever experienced Through her self reflection of our cultural norms, readers will have the concepts to re evaluate their own views and values on what we expect of ourselves and others Untamed opens the eyes, the heart, and the soul.

Like every book Glennon writes, Untamed felt like a conversation between my soul and her soul It s as if she climbs into my heart space, curls up, puts her hands around my heart and goes Listen closely You need to hear this Also, I love you You got this That s what her books always feel like to me And then at some point, her words start melding with everything I already know to be true so it s like my own inner wise woman is speaking to me as I m reading and I m feeling a little stronger and sure of myself every page I turn Untamed was no different Glennon s words are a soothing balm and a call to power all at once a step up and a slow down in one breath And I think that is exactly what we need right now, to both step up and slow down Untamed is a manifesto for that It s a manifesto for uncovering ourselves, and boldly proclaiming ourselves to the world, bravely holding our ground regardless of what the broader systems messages are, and then turning inward to be with ourselves in all our brutal and beautiful wholeness I have folded over so many pages of this book, eagerly awaiting a moment to return so my soul can sit with Glennon s soul and have a chat once again And I can walk away a little stronger, my head a little higher a little loving, of myself and others and a little ready to live untamed. I m incredibly thankful to Penguin Radom House for an ARC of this amazing book.When I read Glennon s first books, I was overwhelmed with two thoughts 1 What honesty, what bravery, what freshness.2 Girl, you re gay.Hearing the story of her coming out to herself and the world and falling in love with herself and Abby is everything you hope it s going to be and But what s even better is the way she invites her readers, subtly and gently, forcefully and unwaveringly, with nothing and everything at stake, to come and be free in the wide open spaces she has found.I think our fearless leader still has a ways to go on her journey to be fully herself, to keep building her beautiful family, to save the whole heckin world , and I can t wait to go on that road with her.5 brutiful stars. Nov 2019 Oh my goodness This just popped in my update feed when Glennon herself marked it as read, and now I CANNOT WAIT March 2020 Update I love Glennon and will always read everything she writes and every interview with her and listen to every podcast Thus some parts of this book felt a little bit repetitive to me Don t let that stop you though especially if you are relatively new to her voice This book is filled with a wonderful message about finding and knowing yourself deeply And then only being true to yourself, not the world s expectations of or visions for you This is a message we all need to hear and embrace wholeheartedly. This is a sacred day to me The most important thing I ve ever written my new book UNTAMED is available for the first time TODAY.I m often asked why I don t publish books often My answer is this I never write a new book until I ve become a new woman Over the past few years, I became a new woman UNTAMED tells that story.At an event for LOVE WARRIOR, a woman walked into the room and the moment I saw her, three words filled my entire being There She Is I knew, from my roots, that she was my person To honor that knowing to honor myself I dismantled and rebuilt my entire life Loving Abby and creating a life with her was the first decision I ever made not as a good girl, but as a free woman.UNTAMED is my deeply personal story of discovering, fighting for, and claiming the great love of my life But this book is not about finding your Abby It is about finding yourself.UNTAMED is about how we got caged by the world s expectations of us, and how we break free It is about how to reclaim yourself, love yourself, trust yourself and abandon others expectations so you can stop abandoning yourself.It s the story of how I learned, through my relationship with Tish, that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows her children how to bravely live It s about how I stopped being a martyr and started being a model.It s the story of how I learned through my divorce and blending my family that a broken family is one in which any member has to break herself to fit in And a whole family is one in which each member has the freedom to bring her entire self to the family table to remain whole and still belong.It s the story of how I learned to set boundaries, make peace with my body, channel my anxiety, and honor my anger It s about how I finally discovered the big deal about sex.It s about how when we stop pleasing and start living we become women who can finally look at ourselves dead in the eyes and say There She Is.Today I am asking you to pre order UNTAMED Even if you usually wait until a book hits the library, or buy it the week it s out, please consider ordering today.It matters to me and to other authors that you vote for our art by buying it as soon as you can It signals that there are people who believe in our work, which allows us to keep making it The UNTAMED team is a handful of fierce, dedicated women We have been working for two years in preparation for today Your pre order today means than I can tell you.Here s another reason to order today We are doing a special signed print run of UNTAMED that includes a beautiful page with the cover art and the vital question What Would You Do If You Trusted Yourself I am going to sign every copy of this limited printing Think of your people who are going through the thick in other words, all of your people and consider gifting them, and yourself, a special signed copy of UNTAMED Once this first printing is gone, there won t be any We don t know if the quantity will last two hours or two weeks, so please order for yourself and your people today Signed copies are available through independent bookstores, Barnes Noble and Books A Million HERE.In the coming weeks, as I sign each book in the limited print run, I will be sending my love and a personal blessing to each of you I don t know if that woo woo stuff works but it makes me so happy and thankful that each of these books will go from my couch to yours, my hands to yours, my heart to yours.When I finished writing, I sent UNTAMED to Liz Gilbert She read it and wrote to me This book will liberate women emotionally, spiritually, and physically I believe you were born to write this book It s true I finally freed myself enough to be able to say what I ve been desperate to say for my entire life.My dream is that since freedom, joy, and peace are contagious they will leap off each page of UNTAMED and into your hearts until each of us is free to live as the people we were born to be before the world told us who to be.I LOVE YOU I LOVE US.G Since I am African MexicanAmerican, I have a hard time reading memoirs sometimes especially when it is from the White Woman perspective, however I really enjoyed the story Glennon Doyle wrote Doyle is able to write about finding and being true to yourself but is able to drop gems of information even though she comes from a place of privilege which she acknowledges herself I want to give this book to every person I know to read with the hopes that they take away from it what I did which is letting down your guard, being who you want to be, and having compassion for the world.
