Dear Universe, I Get It Now: Letters on the Art and Journey of Being Brave and Being Me (Paperback)
Dear Universe, I Get it Now is the work of A.Y. Berthiaume, a lifelong dreamer and exuberant professional writer. This is her inspirational story about facing challenges and peering into life's dark corners while longing to understand her place in the world and learning to love who she is.
Through 22 letters written to the Universe, Berthiaume reflects on her journey, coming to see her path as a series of purposeful, cosmic invitations to be brave. She is asked again and again to become who she was born to be. Berthiaume tells her real-life tales in a voice that is equal parts sarcasm and tenderness. These letters will re-ignite flames you thought were extinguished; empower you to see your experiences as gifts (and signs); and inspire you to own your stories. This part memoir part self-help book will make you cry, laugh, think, and nod in agreement.
Dear Universe, I Get it Now is for anyone questioning their purpose on this planet, but especially for women who once dared to dream (or still do) and who are on a quest to find themselves. This book is rich with women's experiences and the human condition - from family dynamics, to discrimination, racism, death, sexual assault, motherhood, miscarriage, failed relationships, and more, Dear Universe is relatable and deeply honest.
This book will inspire readers to consider what they need to ask the Universe about their own journey and will invite them to brave the path that leads to their truth. Alongside Berthiaume's personal memoir are reflective questions, journaling prompts, and more to guide the reader on their way.
