From the beloved, New York Times bestselling author of Heart Talk, a collection of prose and poetry that explores how we can find light in periods of lostness, love for ourselves after heartbreak, okay-ness in the midst of change, and strength in letting go.

How do we find steadiness within ourselves in the midst of dizzying personal and global change? 
At a time when many of us feel overwhelmed by fear and isolation, Cleo Wade’s Remember Love offers intimate, uplifting words that anchor, nurture, and make us feel less alone.
She shares that the heart work we do for ourselves is not done to avoid the tough stuff—periods of lostness, self-doubt, depression, grief, heartbreak, and anxiety. Wade instead suggests that to live is to get lost, and it’s our task, our great privilege, to learn to love ourselves so that we can handle these periods and our discomfort does not block our healing. Remember Love reminds us that lostness is not our permanent state but a starting point for self-discovery, connection, and growth.

Love, love, loved this book! Cleo Wade is back with some timely sentiments regarding life, love, and hope. I found myself jotting down certain passages and relating to so much of the book. I really enjoy how thoughtful the writing is and how inspiring/motivating it feels. Such a great book!

I've loved everything Cleo Wade has ever put out into the universe and this book became available through NetGalley courtesy of the publisher at the perfect time for me. Wade's words are a warm hug that challenges you. I don't know how to describe that weird sentence other than to tell you to read the book. So much of this resonated with me. Thank you, again, Cleo.

We shouldn’t have to break down in order to pour into ourselves. When we recognize this, we understand the incredible value of rest and restoration. A synonym for restoration is return. The nature of being busy is to do, to expend only outward energy. It is easy to lose track of yourself in this. The nature of rest is to be. It is a return to yourself.

Remember Love: Words For Tender Times feels like a warm hug. Comfortable. Relatable. Loving. Healing. This collection of poetry and prose is a navigational path away from exhaustion, catastrophe and what can be the overwhelming response that busyness can bring. To one of healing, restoration, and radiant love. It is a call to return to love, in the midst of all else. Thank you so much to Rodale Inc. and NetGalley for this gifted copy.

Weaving back and forth from concise, clear, and very focused poetry to generous prose, the author reminds you that love is freeing and it will save you, particularly self-love. She provides so many wonderful encouraging and motivation words that are very affirming. Leading with this notion that to love ourselves is to continually reclaim ourselves. A few of my favorite poems in the collection are: "for people like me who don't know how to relax", "it's simple", and "what's held".

I highly recommend this collection! It is very well-written and oftentimes comforting. This is the first collection I've read from Cleo Wade and after finishing, I look forward to exploring more of her work.

Remember Love: Words For Tender Times releases on October 17, 2023. Don't forget to pre-order your copy.

Cleo Wade never disappoints me. I love the mixture of poetry and passages throughout because it helps the poems flow, but it also helps depict the authors life better. For me as a reader, this is the perfect mixture of poetry and prose.

Cleo Wade's 'Remember Love: Words for Tender Times' is a literary embrace for those navigating the complexities of life, loss, and love. As a therapist who often uses literature to guide my clients toward healing, I found this collection to be a powerful source of comfort and inspiration.

In a world where it can be challenging to remember love and goodness amid events that often seem beyond our control, Wade's words act as a gentle reminder that hope and healing are within reach. This book delves into the heart work we must do for ourselves, recognizing that periods of self-doubt, grief, and anxiety are an integral part of our journey. Wade's words are an invitation to acknowledge our vulnerability and navigate through it with grace and self-compassion.

Wade's prose explores the idea that to live is to get lost, and it is through self-love that we can find our way back to a place of steadiness and contentment. Her words are a testament to the resilience of the human spirit and a beacon of light for those who may be struggling to find their way in the darkness.

'Remember Love' offers intimate, uplifting words that serve as an anchor, providing solace and reminding us that we are not alone in our struggles. The book encourages us to center our own humanity and that of others, emphasizing the importance of using whatever influence we possess to contribute kindness and goodness to the world.

Thank you to the author and publisher for the e-arc copy!

Thank you NetGalley for this advanced copy of Remember Love by Cleo Wade. This is such a beautiful written book. As always she tugs a my heart in the very best ways.

I am familiar with Cleo Wade as I follow her on Instagram. I liked how this book was a natural extension of the work she shares on social media. So many of the poems made me think about things in a new way, especially the one, "I returned the cape". Wow what a gut punch of six lines. This would make a great gift book and also I think it would be a great book to keep on your nightstand to read a bit every morning or night.

Remember Love, by Cleo Wade, is a magnificent gift of poetry and prose that will make a beautiful gift for anyone you love. Broken into four parts covering love, loss, grief, joy, and numerous other emotional topics, Wade shares her lyrical word expertly with her audience.

Was so excited for the ARC of Remember Love. I certainly will. Thank you for these beautiful words. I found myself returning to this book many times over the past month. Writing quotes of inspiration to put on my desk to help me navigate through the change of seasons. Thank you Net Galley, I cannot wait for the hard copy! Such a mood changer.

Cleo Wade has a gift and ability to put into words the way different difficult situations we all eventually face in life make us feel at the moment even while encouraging us to find a new perspective and continue on.

Her words in many of the offerings really resonated with me and I found myself doing a lot of highlighting, making notes, and bookmarking several pages.

This is a book that will never get old on rereading because each time you read it, you or someone you know and/or love is in a different place in your life journey, and different writings become relevant and touch your heart.

Well done, and highly relatable, this earns 4 stars from me.

My thanks to Harmony for permitting me to read a DRC of the book via NetGalley. All opinions expressed in this review are my own and are freely given.

This is a quick read with only 211 pages. Part poetry, part thoughts to consider. I really enjoyed this book. There were sections that spoke to me loudly and some other sections that didn't stir me but still held significance. I think it will be a book that I look back to and draw inspiration from. I looked for the author on social media because I wanted to keep a connection going. I've read other books in this category that didn't really pull me in like this one so I do feel it was right up my alley. I would recommend this as a gift book for friends and family that need some encouragement through difficult times.
