The New York Times Bestseller Fear. Grief. Loss. Betrayal. Rachel Hollis has felt all those things, and she knows you have too. Now, she takes you to the other side.  With her signature humor, heartfelt honesty, and intimate true-life stories, #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hollis shows readers how to seize difficult moments for the learning experiences they are and the value and growth they provide. Rachel Hollis sees you. As the millions who read her #1 New York Times bestsellers Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing, attend her RISE conferences and follow her on social media know, she also wants to see you transform.  When it comes to the "hard seasons" of life--the death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job--transformation seems impossible when grief and uncertainty dominate your days. Especially when, as Didn't See that Coming reveals, no one asks to have their future completely rearranged for them. But, as Rachel writes, it is up to you how you come through your pain--you can come through changed for the better, having learned and grown, or stuck in place where your identity becomes rooted in what hurt you.  To Rachel, a life well-lived is one of purpose, focused only on the essentials. This is a small book about big feelings: inspirational, aspirational, and an anchor that shows that darkness can co-exist with the beautiful.… (more)

Probably not the best read for someone who is comfortable with dark subjects. I can see how this book would easily trigger a reader if they weren’t ready for it’s content. I do believe there some truth to the idea of being able to control your reactions to the world but for me this book spent more time sharing pain than actually helping to get through it. The advice doesn’t feel like it balances out the grief contained here. If you’re the type of person that gains comfort from knowing someone else has been there too or has had much worse happen to them, there might be something here for you. It wasn’t the right fit for me. ( )
