The expectations we feel from others today can make us feel that we are not enough. That we should want more, do more, and be more. Learn to acknowledge your wounds, embrace healing, and shine bright again with these 90 insightful, relatable messages from Faith Broussard Cade.

Faith's hand-penned notes came from a place of trauma and brokenness. Her notes originated from a commitment to healing from a car accident in 2018 that left her with a traumatic brain injury that she still deals with today. It hurts. It slows her down. It makes her feel emotionally vulnerable and overwhelmed some days. But every day she chooses gratitude, love, and hard work. Sharing notes about her struggles on her Instagram account, @fleurdelisspeaks, has helped thousands of others do the same.

In this full-color book she pairs each handwritten note with a longer message to help you:

  • Overcome the wounds of the past through honesty and humbleness
  • Replace feelings of inadequacy with the truth of your worthiness
  • Prioritize self-care even when life is demanding
  • Celebrate each day with gratitude and appreciation
  • Believe in yourself when others say you can't or that you don't matter


If life has left you feeling you are not enough or you are haunted by past choices, circumstances, or labels, Shine Bright Anyway will give you the encouragement to change your narrative. The expectations you live with today do not have to define you. You are enough.

The expectations we feel from others today can make us feel that we are not enough. That we should want more, do more, and be more. Learn to acknowledge your wounds, embrace healing, and shine bright...

This is a beautiful book and I was inspired by each page. The author shares personal stories and her quotes in daily format. I was interested to see how the book came about and checked out her Instagram page for more details. I admire her strength! Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC.

This book started as a 15day self-love challenge from recovering from a traumatic brain trauma into a book of saffirmations that you are enough. Part I you. Are Enough, discuses telling your story, setting limits, knowing yourself,rewriting your story, embracing abundance. Part 2 "self-care" discusses ways of taking care of yourself. Including gratitude,taking time to play and replenish yourself. Part 3 concerns fighting fear and remains steadfast. Down-to earth explanations. Illustrations.

This was cute! I liked the little stories with messages and the photo that accompanies each day. I found this made it a nice easy read. The pictures were bright and simple and I liked that about them.

Sometimes you just want a friend to sit with you and give you a little pep talk that isn't overwhelming, but helps you shake off the doubt and uncertainty, and feel that maybe you can do this after all. This book is that friend. Each day is a page or so of simple, clear talk on a specific theme. Here are some snippets I particularly like:
From Day 27, Be Courageous: "Take one step in the direction of your future."
From Day 33, Breathing Room: "You deserve to be happy."
From Day 50, Stop the Worry: "Give yourself permission to relax. It will be okay."

The best part is that if reading a page still feels overwhelming, you don't even have to do that. You can just look at the photo for that day and read the short encouragement. Because let's be honest, sometimes that's all you feel you have in you, is to just look at the picture. And I think that the author would say that's just fine.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing this eARC for unbiased review. This review will be cross-posted to my social media accounts closer to the book release date.

Sharing her tough journey after an accident derailed her life and she had to learn to pivot on the path of life. She has founds joy and self forgiveness, how to take time for yourself without guilt and how to set healthy boundaries.

Her wisdom is boundless. This 90 day affirmation book shares daily essays and a beautiful photo with one of her affirmations on a card. This is a great book for yourself or to share with a loved one. You will revisit it many times and share the brilliance of Ms. Cade.
