NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Advice for graduates and reflections on staying true to yourself from the beloved Gilmore Girls actress and New York Times bestselling author of the memoir Talking as Fast as I Can and the novel Someday, Someday, Maybe.

"If you're kicking yourself for not having accomplished all you should have by now, don't worry about it. Even without any 'big' accomplishments yet to your name, you are enough."

In this expansion of the 2017 commencement speech she gave at her hometown Langley High, Lauren Graham, the beloved star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, reflects on growing up, pursuing your dreams, and living in the here and now. "Whatever path you choose, whatever career you decide to go after, the important thing is that you keep finding joy in what you're doing, especially when the joy isn't finding you." In her hilarious, relatable voice, Graham reminds us to be curious and compassionate, no matter where life takes us or what we've yet to achieve. Grounded and inspiring--and illustrated throughout with drawings by Graham herself--here is a comforting road map to a happy life.

"I've had ups and downs. I've had successes and senior slumps. I've been the girl who has the lead, and the one who wished she had the bigger part. The truth? They don't feel that different from each other."

Cute little book of advice/motivation

I actually didn't find this motivational speech to be extremely motivational, but I did like the message at the end, and I always appreciate Lauren's wit.

Such an easy read; finished it in less than an hour! But full of really real practical but sage advice. It resonates with me as she touched on worrying and about missing the mark or failing in some ways but she always look at the good things that happened.
