About the Book

"A no-nonsense guide to the life you long for, even when it doesn't go according to plan, from the bestselling author of Own Your Everyday"--

Book Synopsis

A no-nonsense guide to the life you long for, even when it doesn't go according to plan, from the bestselling author of Own Your Everyday.

Jordan Lee Dooley knows firsthand how devastating it can be when you almost achieve a goal, almost reach a dream, and almost get to where you want to be, only to land just short of the finish line or watch it all fall apart at the last minute.

Disrupted, delayed, or even seemingly destroyed dreams have a way of making us rethink everything. But perhaps rethinking dreams is not always the worst thing. In those moments, you have a chance to pause and consider what matters most to you as well as redefine what success looks like for you in a world that's constantly telling you what you should want or should do.

Believe it or not, it is possible to cultivate a life you really like--and one where you can succeed--in the tension of the middle, between where you started and where you hoped to be. Discover:

- the single most important question to ask yourself as you set goals and make plans
- practical steps to move forward when your plans don't go according to plan
- how to clarify which goals are right for you to pursue (and which are not)
- what to do when dreams seem to come true for everyone but you
- the unexpected gains that can arise from unwanted pain
- how to know when it's time to let go of a dream--and what to do with the space left behind

Life is filled with unexpected interruptions, almost-but-not-quite moments, uncertainty, and in-between seasons. As hard as those experiences may be, they also offer a unique invitation to align your dreams and goals with what matters most. Learn how you can gain greater clarity about what you truly want, why you want it, and how to begin pursuing it.

EMBRACE YOUR ALMOST - 6 months ago
Loved every second of this book. I recommend this book for anyone who is going through an in between stage of life. If you are needing some encouragement and are feeling alone while working towards a goal or purpose Jordan Lee Dooley is so relatable and provides great tips. However, I do enjoy a more conversational book from a women of faith. So, if you are going to sit there and count how many times she's used a word over and over then I would suggest not leaving an unkind review. (Yes, I am referring to a previous review that left two stars). Overall this book was great and even loved how cute the cover looks.

Pre-ordered this book before it officially launched, but finally got around to reading it. Straight up finished it in 1.5 days! Jordan speaks into the seasons of life that can leave us feeling disappointed, sad, and wondering "what if?" If you're at a point in life where you feel behind or like you don't know what you're doing with your life, this is a great read for you!

Repetive and Tedious

First, let me say that I loved Jordan Lee Dooley’s first book, Own Your Everyday. I found it insightful and like chatting with a wide friend so, of course, I picked up her new book, Embrace Your Almost, during a recent Target trip. I’m about halfway through right now and to call it tedious is an understatement. The recycled trite christian-isms (steward, refine, etc.) are tiresome. The amount of repetition makes me question if she even had an editor. In chapter 7, between pages 95-108, she used the phrase unholy labor (or unholiest of labors) FIFTEEN times. That’s not an exaggeration, I counted. Because I used to follow her on social media, I knew that she’d suffered two miscarriages and I assumed she’d write about them in this book, which she did, but the way that glossed over such traumatic and painful experiences and instead kept reiterating cliché phrases about her pain refining her, felt hollow and fell flat. Of course, being a writer doesn’t mean that you have to “cut yourself open and bleed all over the page” for your readers but her biggest example of an “almost” was so watered-down that it almost seemed pointless to include. I’m going to finish this book eventually. Hopefully the second half is less repetitive but I won’t hold my breath.

Jordan Lee Dooley does it again with Embrace Your Almost, like she did with Own Your Everyday. To the woman that feels that she does not have everything figured out, this book is for you. 10 out of 10 recommend.
