Girl, Wash Your FaceStop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be
By Rachel Hollis
With wry wit and hard-earned wisdom, popular online personality and founder of TheChicSite.com founder Rachel Hollis helps readers break free from the lies keeping them from the joy-filled and exuberant life they are meant to have.
Founder of the lifestyle website TheChicSite.com and CEO of her own media company, Chic Media, Rachel Hollis has created an online fan base of hundreds of thousands of fans by sharing tips for living a better life while fearlessly revealing the messiness of her own. Now comes her highly anticipated first book featuring her signature combination of honesty, humor, and direct, no-nonsense advice.
Each chapter of Girl, Wash Your Face begins with a specific lie Hollis once believed that left her feeling overwhelmed, unworthy, or ready to give up. As a working mother, a former foster parent, and a woman who has dealt with insecurities about her body and relationships, she speaks with the insight and kindness of a BFF, helping women unpack the limiting mind-sets that destroy their self-confidence and keep them from moving forward.
From her temporary obsession with marrying Matt Damon to a daydream involving hypnotic iguanas to her son’s request that she buy a necklace to “be like the other moms,” Hollis holds nothing back. With unflinching faith and tenacity, Hollis spurs other women to live with passion and hustle and to awaken their slumbering goals.
"Girl, Wash Your Face," is a book that I believe speaks to my heart because of the season I am currently in. Rachel Hollis is relatable and you can't help but enjoy this book. Her book isn't something that I don't think I haven't heard before, but the way she tells her book, is in a new way that is about the ways Rachel has walked hard stuff and how to turn your life around, so you won't make the same mistakes as her.
What I love about each chapter of the book is how she exposes a lie she believed. We each can relate to these lies we've believed and through her own stories, she shares how she can to learn the truth, application, and offer actions steps. I love how she isn't afraid to be vulnerable to teach others what she has learned. Her life hasn't always been easy, but she wants to share her wisdom and for that I appreciate!
This book is perfect for millennials, which isn't to say that older women could not benefit from this book, but this is definitely for a younger age group, which is why I think I enjoyed it so much. I think someone older in their 40's and 50's would have found that they already have figured out some of this stuff. This is a book that I will be reading again! I give this book 5/5 stars.
