You Are Here: An Owner's Manual for Dangerous Minds
You Are Here: An Owner's Manual for Dangerous Minds | Jenny Lawson
A new book from #1 "New York Times "bestselling author Jenny Lawson, destined to be a classic part therapy, part best friend, part humor, part coloring book.When Jenny Lawson is anxious, one of the things she does is to draw. Elaborate doodles, beautiful illustrations, often with captions that she posts online. At her signings, fans show up with printouts of these drawings for Jenny to autograph. And inevitably they ask her when will she publish a whole book of them. That moment has arrived."You Are Here "is something only Jenny could create. A combination of inspiration, therapy, coloring, humor, and advice, this book is filled with Jenny s amazingly intricate illustrations, all on perforated pages that can be easily torn out, hung up, and shared. Drawing on the tenets of art therapy which you can do while hiding in the pillow fort under your bed "You Are Here" is ready to be made entirely your own.Some of the material is dark, some is light; some is silly and profane and irreverent. Gathered together, this is life, happening right now, all around, in its messy glory, as only Jenny Lawson could show us."

1-1-20: Happy New Year to all!! Here are my Goodreads totals! I had set my goal for 80 and read 30 over that, I can‘t believe it! I‘m proud but also thankful for the ability to read because it helps so much with my anxiety. Here‘s to a new year with more great books and less anxiety. 🎆📖💖

Soubhiville @wanderinglynn I was really hoping she‘d end up in Austin, but San Antonio is only about 2 hours from me. Close enough to make the drive a few times a year! I bet she will have great guests! 3mo
mcipher My sons‘s girlfriend lives in San Antonio, so that might be a good excuse to check it out.. he can‘t travel alone right?!😉 3mo

Coloring and binge watching Friends. Y'know, this show did not give me unrealistic expectations of romantic relationships, but it certainly gave me unrealistic expectations of adult friendships.

LauraBrook Same. It's so hard to keep friendships up as an adult, let alone anything like on Friends. Though I did learn what not to do if I can't pull up my leather pants. 😉 2y

My favorite page so far. "Anchor me. Ground me. Keep me safe and sound. But drag me down--she said--and I will cut you." A good, much needed reminder to let go of the things that drag you down.

I started off 2017 excited about all the books & reading challenges & being active on Litsy, & then life happened. I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, my grandmother died, I am no longer speaking to my dad after discovering he has a son that he's never met or supported in any way & was never planning to tell me about, & this school year has nearly caused me to throw the 8 years I've been on this teaching career path out the window.

britt_brooke 💔 hugs! 3y
BookNerdBritt I retreated from friends, family, social media and stopped caring about much of anything, but I knew it was bad when even reading no longer brought me enjoyment. So I'm hoping to spend this summer healing and emerging from my hole a tiny bit at a time. 3y
TheKidUpstairs I am so sorry for your losses, and for such a hard start. I hope that you have a good support system and that things get brighter from here. And you can always vent here! Littens are good listeners and supporters! Sending you hugs! 3y

mjdowens My daughter has generalized anxiety disorder also. She calls and I let her just get it all out without saying anything. Then I tell her to list everything on her mind and then mark only the ones that she can actually do something about right now. Don't let too many thing overwhelm you at once. Work on the things that you can control right now. 3y
TrishB I hope you manage to see some light at the end of the tunnel. Sending hugs ❤ 3y
mjdowens Take some time if you can to reflect on your stresses and loss. So sorry you are having to deal with all of this. You need some time to grieve also. Please take care and keep reaching out to your Litsy family. We will always at least listen😌 3y
Bibliogeekery Sending care and support for this difficult time ❤️ 3y
AThousandLives87 Litsy love, care and support sweety. You need it. If there's anything I can do let me know! I do mean that!!! 3y
teebe Reading and managing anxiety at the same time sucks. There's some months I can manage 10+ books and some months where I don't read at all. My advice-- trying switching to shorter books (poetry, graphic novels). It takes less commitment. Or start many novels but drop them (temporarily) if you're not enjoying them. Sometimes I have to force myself to read at least 2 chapters of dozens of books until I find one that's intriguing enough for me. 3y
Sharanya Sending you lots of hugs ❤️❤️❤️ 3y

josie281 Take care of yourself. Litsy love your way! ❤️ 3y
Louise Sending you warm wishes of peace. GAD is not a life sentence. You will find ways to help and comfort yourself when the anxiety is high; and over time, this foundation of self care can help to decrease the anxiety. A small dose of medication can work wonders too. ❤️ (edited) 3y

Another excellent product from Jenny Lawson. I discovered this coloring book to have a supportive, encouraging, and loving feel. Although, page 54 had me LOL 😂 and texting a picture of the page to my husband...who responded that I was being silly.

Zelma My counselor's office has this and a stack of colored pencils in her waiting room. 👍 3y

I went to the bookstore in search of some books to inspire two graduates celebrating their big 🚀. After agonizing about why this book would be great, but would be ignored, and that would be better but would be dismissed, but what about this one I loved, but I'm old and they're young ... I stumbled across this and had to buy it for myself. Time to give myself a hug today.
