From the New York Times bestselling author of How to Be a Bawse comes an “insightful and charmingly funny” (Rupi Kaur) primer on learning to come home to your truest and happiest self.
“I love Lilly’s honest and helpful advice about achieving happiness.”—Mindy Kaling, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Why Not Me?
“It’s time to flip right side up. It’s time for this book title to make sense. It’s time to be a triangle.”
Everyone—even world-famous actress, author, and creator Lilly Singh—knows that sometimes life just sucks. In this book, Singh provides a safe space where readers can learn how to create a sense of peace within themselves. Without sugarcoating what it’s like to face adversity—including acknowledging her own intensely personal struggles with identity, success, and self-doubt—Singh teaches readers to “unsubscribe” from cookie-cutter ideals.
With her signature blend of vulnerability, insight, and humor, Singh instructs readers to “be a triangle,” creating a solid foundation for your life, one that can be built upon, but never fundamentally changed or destroyed. As she puts it, we must always find a way to come home to ourselves: “we must create a place, a system of beliefs, a simple set of priorities to come back to should life lead us astray, which it definitely will.”
Like a wise, empathetic friend who always keeps you honest, Singh pushes you to adjust your mindset and change your internal dialogue. The result is a deeply humane, entertaining, and uplifting guide to befriending yourself and becoming a true “miracle for the world.”
A Safe Space
We genuinely wanted something to help us create a safe space in our minds and this book does that in such a beautiful meaningful way. This book exudes transparency and uniqueness that we crave in our lives in order to have the necessary foundation to grow and be better. Highly recommended. Worth every word.
Be A Triangle by Lilly Singh
Lilly Singh’s book Be A Triangle kind of reminds me of the 4 Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Now we have 4 pillars to create and maintain a safe space in our hearts and minds to return to that will help us navigate life’s challenges and successes. While I have been following Ms. Singh’s career and journey, it has recently occurred to me that she has been bestowed with the skills of teaching through her humour, wit, and creativity for anyone who has the opportunity to catch her vibe. A teacher is a spiritual gift from the Universe- Great Creator to provide humanity with Light and Love. Yes , light and love are embodied in flawed humans . I, for one , am grateful for the various ways Lilly has helped me to keep on growing and changing in the current state of our world . I am a complex and nuanced human learning to stay on the cutting edge of life every day I have breath. I now embrace the Triangle of my life. Gracias Lilly!
