Thoughts on "Let That Sh*t Go: A Journal for Leaving Your Bullsh*t Behind and Creating a Happy Life" by Monica Sweeney
I'm so excited to share a review of our next book club book for the Pure Romance by Deedre VIP Community. If you're a woman age 18 or over and you haven't joined our community yet, you can click here to sign up for my emails and get exclusive access. We'll be starting the discussion over this book in February, so dive into this review, then join the community for a free PDF reading guide and bookmark.
Let me start by saying that this is not a book you read cover to cover ( I mean, I suppose you could, but that's not really the point). It's an interactive journal with exercises that involve both introspection and coloring. That's right, I said coloring.
Monica Sweeney is funny and irreverent while inviting the reader to really break down some serious topics. It appears that her purpose really is to help us "let that shit go". Stop taking yourself so seriously, stop overthinking, stop feeling guilty, and stop feeling overwhelmed. This journal is designed with very short to the point exercises that don't take that long to complete, but still leave you feeling a sigh of relief when you've finished. From the Swippy Swap that focuses on diversions for bad habits to Not Today, Satan! that helps blast through anxieties, this journal is chalk full of insight and naughty words.
I would recommend making Let That Sh*t Go part of your daily routine. Whether you start or end your day with it, or just squeeze it in over the lunch hour, there are enough prompts to keep you going for almost two months. And, if you need more, rest easy knowing that Sweeney has two more journals: Find Your F*cking Happy and Zen as F*uck.
