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 youre not where you want to be on this daydont 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 youre doing, especially when the joy isnt finding you. In her hilarious, relatable voice, Graham reminds us to be curious and compassionate, no matter where life takes us or what weve yet to achieve. Your job doesnt define youyour bravery and kindness and gratitude do. Grounded and inspiringand illustrated throughout with drawings by Graham herselfhere is a comforting road map to a happy life. Ive had ups and downs. Ive had successes and senior slumps. Ive been the girl who has the lead, and the one who wished she had the bigger part. The truth? They dont feel that different from each other. Lauren Graham

Got this as a gift from a friend and it was the perfect inspiration I needed. I know it's technically meant for graduating students, but I feel like everyone can do with a bit of inspiration in their lives.

Years after graduating from college the message and advice that Lauren writes about is transcendent, whether you are graduating college, lost a job, or going through a break up this book really lifts your spirits. It's eye opening and gives you confidence in anything life may throw your way, in any area of your life or what chapter of your life you may be in.

I finished this one days ago but forgot to post about it. This is a quick read by Lauren Graham and one that would make a great gift to graduates and boost to anyone who is unsure of their current direction in life. Nothing spectacular but as a huge Gilmore Girls fan I knew I had to read it.

“In real life, I‘ve found progress lives in small and seemingly uneventful accomplishments: the homework you finished, the journal you remembered to write in, the same run you took on the same path as yesterday. These things might not always seem like much, but over time, they add up to something bigger.”

Starting (and maybe finishing) this short book before bed tonight. Thanks again to @erinreads for sending me this copy in the #jb book swap earlier this year! I‘m really looking forward to diving in.

As someone who recently graduated from University, it was nice to read something that is meant to be inspiring or, at least, reassuring. Lately, I have been experiencing concern about my current job situation and future prospects. Although I don‘t feel like going out and conquering the world after reading this book, I did feel comforted by her experiences and motivational perspective.

Basically, I just love Lauren graham and anything she does 💕

Just listened to the audiobook this morning at work. Very quick, easy read. I love the way Lauren Graham speaks/writes. It all feels so conversational and relatable. Some good advice - goodness knows I obsessively worry about too many things.

Thank you so much @erinreads for this book!!! It has been on my TBR and need to own list since I heard of its release this spring. Now all I want to do is drop all of my responsibilities and get to reading. (I‘m glad I didn‘t open it at work!)

Also, a special thanks to @Kaye for organizing!

GREETINGS LITTENS! It's been months since I last posted and I've missed you all! I started a new full time State job in April, and combined with my part time job at the bookstore I was working 60-80 hours a week, so no time to read. But now my hours are starting to simmer down and I'm slowly starting to come out of my reading slump. This book was just a transcript of a speech, so tiny, but a good slumpbuster. More posts to come, good to be back😎

Need a quick, inspirational grad gift? Check out this book. A thousand times better than most of the graduation commencement speeches teens are forced to hear. And a very quick read that even a reluctant reader can endure.

This was a half hour essay. A recreation of a graduation speak Lauren Graham gave, along with some context before and after. It was cute.

“In conclusion, don‘t worry about it. You already have The Most. And you‘re already one of The Best.”

In 2017, Lauren Graham, the star of Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, gave the commencement speech at her hometown Langley High. This is the expansion of that speech where she reflects on growing up, pursuing your dreams, and living in the here and now.

Short and sweet read that is packed full of inspiration on how to live a happy life.

Lauren Graham is an entertaining writer, and there are some good thoughts in here, but this really was not a book. It was more of an essay that said some very nice inspirational stuff that has been said before. If it had been a piece on HuffPost, I probably would have shared it on Facebook.

I‘ll be very upfront: I read anything and everything from Lauren Graham. She‘s lovable on Gilmore Girls and also happens to be a gifted writer, and so this one was an automatic pick for me. This is a very sweet, very short, collection of thoughts that started as a graduation speech, offering lots of good-natured advice for the future. I wish it‘d been longer but it‘s a nice little read for this grad season.

4/5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. This is a slightly extended version of a graduation speech #LaurenGraham gave to her alma mater. I enjoyed her thoughts on success and happiness. I‘ve read her other books and this one didn‘t disappoint. The only reason it didn‘t get 5/5 is because it didn‘t feel long enough. I wish she would have made this book into a memoir, using her speech as a theme. Nevertheless, I liked this book in spite of its brevity. #jpbookreview

🎧 Library hold came in 🎉 and I am finally listening to #InConclusionDontWorryAboutIt by #LaurenGraham 🎧 I enjoyed her other books and I am excited for this one. 🤗 I have adored her since #gilmoregirls 📚 Have you read this one yet?

“Satisfaction is not found in the big achievements. It‘s not in winning. Starring has nothing to do with how big your part is — it‘s a state of mind.” - Lauren Graham

🌟🌟🌟🌟/5
Read this today. It was a great quick little read.
Lauren Graham expands on a commencement speach she gave last year.
In Conclusion Dont Worry About it is just that a book about knowing your worth it and not worrying about having everything all figured out.
Great book for graduates and young people in general. But also for people that tend to overthink their lives.

I have spent a considerable amount of time this weekend (in between the gym, cleaning, and laser tag (date night this week ❤️)) just sitting on my ass listening to audiobooks and eating.

In conclusion, I love all things that Lauren Graham does.

⭐️⭐️ I mean....why can't these types of books just be a blog post or something and that's it? Don't get me wrong--I like Lauren Graham, or as I like to call her, Lorelai, but why does everyone publish their commencement address? Just blog it. I'm sure it's $$$ but it's tiny and a super quick read, so just blog it and be done.

Great quick little book to uplift you in the simplest way! Find joy in where you are! You don‘t have to be the star you just have to be where you are, where you are is the best, quote from the book “don‘t be perfect, just be done (relations to writing and deadlines) “which is yet another way of saying “don‘t worry so much.”

If Lauren Graham writes it, I‘m reading it. This is a sweet little inspirational book. Of course I wish it was longer, but Lauren has some good advice mixed in with her usual wit and humor. A quick read that will be good to come back to when I need a pick me up. #inspirational #nonfiction #laurengraham

This is a gift book that sprang from a 2017 commencement speech Lauren Graham gave at her high school. It‘s (very) short but funny and inspiring and serves its intended purpose as an advice book to give to graduates.

So grateful for this book! Perfect and I will DEFINITELY be giving this as a graduation gift in the future. Not my personal copy, but... still, a great little gift that makes you smile and reminds you to celebrate the small or perhaps even repeating moments because they often end up being more important. And her doodles are adorable. ❤️
