Still on Fire: A Memoir Renee Linnell
Still on Fire: A Memoir
Magic, miracles, travel, and romance-this is where Renee leads you in her long-awaited sequel to The Burn Zone. From love affairs with men half her age to being rescued by angels, to getting stranded at 22,000 feet in the Himalayas and being electrocuted in the Maldives, Renee takes you on a wild page-turning adventure-sharing with you soul-soothing wisdom she gained along the way. Where The Burn Zone was an exploration of what happens when we don't listen to our inner guidance, Still on Fire is an exposition of what happens when we do. As Renee courageously takes leap after leap into the unknown, picks up the pieces after being shattered, and recounts hilarious attempts to regain her mojo, you will see yourself in her stories. You will remember it is not only okay but necessary to try and fail. And your heart will be lifted as you become reminded of a deep truth you have always known but may have forgotten along the way-life is magic and anything is possible.
I received a copy of this book from FSB Associates. Julia Sutherlin Publicity Manager FSB Associates provided Renee's photos.
Review: Still on Fire: A Memoir Renee Linnell
I've been binge-listening to the Disney channel and try as I might, I can not seem to stop. So, I am listening to the movie Pinocchio while typing this blog post.
Sometimes, it is difficult to think of what to say, or more often how I want to say it. I'll start at the beginning of Still on Fire and tell you, that chapter one starts with a confession and ends with the realization that on our journey to finding our authentic selves, we have fine-tuning to do.
Over the years, I have worked with many authors who say writing an uninhibited memoir is not only difficult but very demanding. This narrative takes aspects of Renee's adventures and provides strong and vivid descriptions to allow the reader to perceive them as they wish.
I'll give you an example of what I am talking about.
While writing this review, and listening to Pinocchio I keyed in on a line in a song that included the word EXTREME. My thoughts drifted back to one of my favorite stories in Still on Fire.
Many people reading this book might think it is EXTREME to follow a mysterious man, carrying a machete, and a Ti leaf to the water. However, the man asked Renee and her two girlfriends "Would you like to go behind the waterfall?" In my mind, a waterfall would be preferable to swimming with crocodiles. I digress if you want to know what occurred next. you'll need to get a copy of the book or check out a different review. "Why?", you ask. Because suspense builds reader engagement.
This book has a little bit of everything. The background information is Renee's adventures, her cat, cricket, men, miracles, modeling, and more.
Renee expresses she lives her life believing that each day is a choice. In most relationships, there is an imbalance. She opens up about her sexuality and partner selection. She makes readers aware of the need to find a good balance for their own needs, wants, and desires.
In closing, I find this book encourages us.
1. Don't undervalue yourself.
2. We're all good at something.
3. We don't need other people to tell us we are good to know that we are.
4 We can achieve change in areas of personal health and relationships.
4. Miracles and Magic surrounds each of us.
What I found most appealing was Renee's statement, "Our air should always have sparkles." I agree and believe this helps us recognize we are still on fire.
