Currently Reading: Rachel Hollis

I enjoy reading, but not fiction. There is always “work” that can be done on myself as a person and I love the insight I get from self help books, business books and books on faith. My latest reads have been from Rachel Hollis and BOY, did they hit me right in the gut!

  1. Girl, Wash Your Face

Probably the most popular of her books out right now. This book generally discusses the need to put on your big girl pants and go after your dreams. I liked it, but not as much as the next book.

2. Girl, Stop Apologizing

Her follow up book to Girl, Wash Your Face. This book felt like it was written for ME. I am a people pleaser and a perfectionist and something clicked this year where I was simply tired of being a chameleon, trying to please and satisfy every person’s opinion around me. I read this book and it solidified that the only person’s opinion that matters is MINE. I decide who I am going to be. Who cares if it’s been done before? Who cares if I’m not the most educated? For the first time in my life, I feel like I know who I am, what I enjoy, and what I value. And I am owning it. That is a wonderful feeling.

Thank you, Rachel Hollis.
