About the author:
Author Melanie Young has made a career of turning challenges into opportunities as a wine and food marketing and communications specialist. When breast cancer took her on an unexpected detour in 2009-2010 she seized the opportunity to make positive lifestyle changes to stay healthy, manage stress, eliminate fear of recurrence and rethink how she wanted to live her life with renewed purpose. Writing was her therapy and voice to help inspire others to face life’s challenges with grit, grace and wit. Her first book, Getting Things Off My Chest, helps newly diagnosed women navigate their breast cancer journey with confidence. In Fearless Fabulous You! Melanie’s message is: “Be CEO- chief empowerment officer- of your life. Find your passion and purpose; be your own wellness advocate and believe in your self-worth.”
 Reidhead Randomness:
There are five sections in this book: Recharge, Release, Reconnect, Reframe and Reclaim. Each section contains very short chapters (seriously like 2-3 pages) which just take a few minutes to read. At the end of each chapter are quotes, and a "Fearless & Fabulous Five" list.  These highlights five points she made in the chapter.

In the beginning of the book, she talks about making a "to-care" list.  She suggests starting with the things that will take care of yourself, and then figuring out how to fit everything else in.  

In the next few pages is a list of 10 tips to reset and recharge.  I REALLY need to work on them.

She moves on to talk about self worth.  I really liked the quote:  "No matter where you go or what you do, being content with yourself and comfortable in your body will make those around you feel more at ease.

Throughout the book, there are lots of fun graphics with quotes that are certainly Pinterest worthy!

The whole book was amazing!  Another favorite section was "Reflect but don't dwell."  If you know someone who is stuck in the past (it may even be you), this is the 3 pages for you!  

I love how she shares personal experiences to help you come to recognize and resolve different challenges we all face.

This is a great book and very helpful.  It's a quick read...and you can do it in very small bites!  You can read one chapter per day, or per week and focus on each of the areas.  If you need reminding, you can always refer to the Fearless & Fabulous Five list at the end of each chapter.

Thanks to Cedar Fort for providing me a copy of this book to review.  All opinions expressed are my own.
