Furiously Happy: A Funny Book about Horrible Things
Furiously Happy: A Funny Book about Horrible Things | Jenny Lawson
In "Furiously Happy," #1 "New York Times" bestselling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a "terrible" idea. But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.As Jenny says" """Some people might think that being 'furiously happy' is just an excuse to be stupid and irresponsible and invite a herd of kangaroos over to your house without telling your husband first because you suspect he would say no since he's never particularly liked kangaroos. And that would be ridiculous because no one would invite a herd of kangaroos into their house. Two is the limit. I speak from personal experience. My husband says that none is the new limit. I say he should have been clearer about that before I rented all those kangaroos."""Most of my favorite people are dangerously fucked-up but you'd never guess because we've learned to bare it so honestly that it becomes the new normal. Like John Hughes wrote in The Breakfast Club, 'We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it.' Except go back and cross out the word 'hiding.'"""Furiously Happy" is about" "taking those moments when things are fine and making them amazing, because those moments are what make us who we are, and they're the same moments we take into battle with us when our brains declare war on our very existence. It's the difference between "surviving life" and "living life." It's the difference between "taking a shower" and "teaching your monkey butler how to shampoo your hair." It's the difference between being "sane" and being "furiously happy.""Lawson is beloved around the world for her inimitable humor and honesty, and in "Furiously Happy," she is at her snort-inducing funniest. This is a book about embracing everything that makes us who we are - the beautiful and the flawed - and then using it to find joy in fantastic and outrageous ways. Because as Jenny's mom says, "Maybe 'crazy' isn't so bad after all." Sometimes crazy is just right.

I like Jenny Lawson. She‘s my kind of people - not quite right, but totally acceptable. This is a funny glimpse into the sometimes tragic workings of an unsettled and hilarious mind.

A fuckin' MASTERPIECE! The time spent reading this book was a combination of whispering 'WTF' while chuckling, laughing so hard I had to catch my breath, and ruminating on a perspective that I honestly should have been looking into long before now. Jenny Lawson lives with mental and physical illness while being a hilarious and insightful writer, and generally awesome, and I will be reading ALL of her books, soonest. #memoir

It doesn't mean I'm a failure at appreciating the good things in life. It means I'm successful in recognizing what the good things in life are FOR ME."

Having just spent part of the day mending by hand sewing, I can confirm: "Needles find you." From a hilarious memoir recounting thoughts and experiences of a woman dealing with mental illness, that I think has the potential to gross me out with bizarre musings or break my heart with raw honesty as well as make me laugh too loud too late at night. We'll see when I'm done! ???

I laughed out loud while reading this book.I also read portions to my husband.This author does a great job of turning what many consider a negative situation into a positive. She‘s talented,and we are lucky enough to benefit from it.I am really hoping that Jenny Lawson visits one of the bookstores in my area.I‘d love more than anything to meet her.If you‘ve struggled with mental health issues,or even if you haven‘t,you should read this book!

“And louder than all of that were the whispers that became stronger every day from thousands and thousands of people creeping to the edge and quietly admitting, “Me too. I thought it was just me.” And the whispers became a roar. And the roar became an anthem that carried me through some of my darkest moments. I did not ride that wave alone.” #whisper #QuotsyOct21

GondorGirl This book really changed the way I live with anxiety and depression. It helped me learn to focus on the good times and live those moments to their fullest without worrying about when the dark times would be back. 8mo

This book is quirky, funny and poignant about the mental illness with which the author deals. It's odd and sometimes I wondered what I was listening to, but then it moves on to a chapter about what she actual deals with in a way that is understandable and sensitive. I listened to this on audio which was great because the author read it with her own great emphasis that made it entertaining. I'm glad I listened to it. #litsyAtoZ for “L“

There was no way to explain to this stranger how my mental illness had just gifted me with a magical moment. I realized it would have sounded a bit crazy, but that made sense. After all, I was a bit crazy. And I didn‘t even have to pretend to be good at it. I was a damn #natural.” #QuotsySep21

I can‘t believe I ever thought that I didn‘t like Jenny Lawson! She is hilarious and heartfelt and has just the right amount of bitter in her sweet. Interspersing the crazy, funny stories about her family makes the very important points she makes about mental and physical health more manageable and less depressing. Because it is hard to be chronically ill, and I think she makes the complex feelings about that very accessible. Read the #audiobook!

squirrelbrain I think I need to try this author soon. Great review! 14mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lawson‘s cats are named Hunter S. Tomcat and Ferris Mewler, FFS. 😹 I wish to be that punny. This book is kind of all over the place, but I quite enjoy being in her ridiculous, clever, and intelligent headspace. Lawson openly discusses her anxiety and clinical depression in a relatable way. Such honesty helps to further normalize these struggles. I know I‘ve said this before, but she‘s a MUST on audio. #reread #coverlove

I loved this background and this audiobook. I could have done with a bit less taxidermy, but just because it‘s not my thing and kinda grosses me out, but that‘s just me. However, I‘m a firm believer in laughing at your problems, that it‘s better to laugh than cry, and that truth is stranger than fiction, and this book delivered all of those in the most furiously happy way. And on a serious note, mental illness needs to be brought out into the ⤵️

Riveted_Reader_Melissa ↪️ open and discussed in serious and funny ways, and I‘m so glad to see authors willing to open up about their struggles, because every story shared makes it easier for the next person to speak their truth.
