Do you ever suspect that everyone else has life figured out and you don’t have a clue? If so, Rachel Hollis has something to tell you: that’s a lie.
As the founder of the lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company, Rachel Hollis developed an immense online community by sharing tips for better living while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own life. Now, in this challenging and inspiring new book, Rachel exposes the twenty lies and misconceptions that too often hold us back from living joyfully and productively, lies we’ve told ourselves so often we don’t even hear them anymore.
With painful honesty and fearless humor, Rachel unpacks and examines the falsehoods that once left her feeling overwhelmed and unworthy, and reveals the specific practical strategies that helped her move past them. In the process, she encourages, entertains, and even kicks a little butt, all to convince you to do whatever it takes to get real and become the joyous, confident woman you were meant to be.
With unflinching faith and rock-hard tenacity, Girl, Wash Your Face shows you how to live with passion and hustle–and how to give yourself grace without giving up.
I am not in the target market for this book. I am 40 and have 2 boys in their mid and late teens. I would have LOVED, to read this book in my younger, young family years. However, I still loved this book. Rachel Hollis is relatable. It was as if this book is a conversation with your best friend, just talking and keeping the conversation real. There were many valid points in this books, but the key was to do what works for you. Be you. Be confident and DON’T take “no” for an answer when you are striving to reach your goals.
I can’t wait to read her next book, Girl, Stop Apologizing, that is coming out in March 2019!
“Girl, get ahold of your life. Stop medicating, stop hiding out, stop being afraid, stop giving pieces of yourself, stop saying you can’t do it. Stop the negative self-talk, stop abusing your body, stop putting it off for tomorrow or Monday or next year. Stop crying about what happened and take control of what happens next. Get up, right now. Rise up from where you’ve been, scrub away the tears and the pain of yesterday and start again… Girl, wash your face!
