Girl, Read This Book
Rachel Hollis is my new best friend. She doesn’t know it yet, but I’m going to her conference in L.A. in three weeks so soon she will!
All of my besties will testify to the fact that I am a straight talker — in fact, I can be a little too intense (RIP to all the boyfriends I’ve scared away...to my friends, thank you for loving me still). That being said, Rachel Hollis might give me a run for my money. Reading this book feels like a kick in the pants, which is probably why I love it so much.
The basic premise for the book is that each of us are in control of our own lives, and we need to start acting like it. Each chapter starts with a lie that Rachel used to believe that is universal to women everywhere, then tells stories from her life that show how she overcame that limiting belief. At the end of each chapter she gives several suggestions for how each of us can practically battle that lie ourselves.
It would be easy to assume things about Rachel from instagram (perfect clothes, perfect family, kick-butt job, etc) but her raw honesty about what she has been through in life humanized her, made me empathize with her, and helped me reflect on my own life experiences. It also made her pep talks and suggestions credible — she is talking the talk AND walking the walk.
Stay tuned in to my instagram feed for the selfies of Rach and I sipping wine and swapping life stories, and in the meantime...girl, read this book! (Buy it on Amazon here)
