Why Bother? by Jennifer LoudenWhy Bother?: Discover the Desire for What's Next by Jennifer Louden
on May 10, 2020
Genres: Nonfiction

The most important question you’ll ever ask yourself
In Why Bother? personal-growth expert Jennifer Louden challenges you to open your mind, your heart, and your life by following where the question leads. Through reflection and stories from others, Louden shows that asking "why bother?" is natural and inevitable, and can bring you to a place of increased vitality, true satisfaction, and deeper meaning. Louden demonstrates why it’s important to bother after creative faceplants, professional defeats, heartbreak, illness, and loss. She shows why you’re worth prioritizing at any time of your life, even after sidelining your dreams to raise kids, pay the rent, or take care of aging parents. And—crucially—she shows you how tapping into your deepest desires can give you the energy to move forward—even when the world seems in such dire straits.
After all, no one wants the alternative—giving up, shutting down, or phoning it in. It's time to reclaim the dignity and beauty of your desires. It's time to get your bother on.

Leann’s Thoughts

Book cover for why bother?

*This* is the book that I have reached for the most during the pandemic! I had been in a reading slump since the craptastic events began and everything Jen writes in the book has gone through my head. I feel so seen!
There’s no way she could have predicted that large swaths of the population would need a book like this at this exhausting time, yet here it is.

It’s at the top of my recommendation stack for anyone who is overwhelmed by living and would do anything for a burst of inspiration. Luckily, that energy comes in book form.

The highest of recommendations! This is a must-read NOW!
