I am a little slow when it comes to the hype of Rachel Hollis and her books: Girl, Wash Your Face and Girl, Stop Apologizing; but I am so very glad I finally made the time to dive right into them. It may just have happened at the right time. During COVID-19, I have made myself a priority and created habits in my life that will help me reach what I want in life as well as focusing on who my best self is. As my role quickly changed from stay at home mom, to student, and now teacher .. I am finding that I really do not know what I want in life and how to get there. This time has been refreshing and valuable to my discovery.
Both books are like sitting down with an old friend having a conversation. Hollis provides realistic insight into her own life to help you dig deep within yours. Relatable stories help you see how your life can be affected by her lessons learned in her journey no matter what your end goal is.
Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies about Who You Are So You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be takes a lie that a lot of women believe in their life and turns your focus’ on the truth or how to discover it on your own. Girl, Stop Apologizing: A Shame-Free Plan for Embracing and Achieving Your Goals walks you through the process of becoming your best self. First by understanding that you are deserving of living it to the skills and habits that you can develop to reach it.
I found myself laughing, crying, nodding my head in agreement throughout both of these books. I took time to reflect on the topics and was honest with myself in how these books pushed me toward what I was searching for. If you have not had the opportunity to read these books; I encourage you to take some time this summer to do so… I believe that with prayer they can help direct you toward the life you were made for.
