You’ll zip through Girl, Wash Your Face, feeling energized to take on your next project – the project that seemed impossible before you picked up this book.
I found myself nodding, talking back to my kindle, and highlighting so many statements in this book. And it changed my perspective on a few things – like, don’t break promises to yourself. (example: do what you say you’re going to do. either don’t say you’re going to work out or say your going to workout and do it. guilty as charged .)
Rachel also has an incredible podcast for women, interviewing cool women and sprinkling in encouraging tips on making your life more positive. She nails all of the insecurities and excuses we feed ourselves as women, and gives practical advice on how to lead happier lives. Who doesn’t need to hear a friend (even if she is in reality, a stranger) tell you all of the things you fear make you inadequate are actually… (gasp) NORMAL.

Favorite Quote “I mean that you should spend more time doing things that feed your spirit: more long walks with your dog, less volunteering for that thing you feel obligated to do but actually hate. You are in charge of your own life, sister, and there’s not one thing in it that you’re not allowing to be there. Think about it.”Rachel Hollis
