My Highly Caffeinated Thought: The perfect combination of honesty, humor, and motivation.
If you don't know who Rachel Hollis is, then I respectfully ask you to stop reading this, go Google her and follow her on social media. When you are done, come back here. I will wait...
Done? Good. Now, let's talk about GIRL WASH YOUR FACE. This is the book I needed to read. You see, I am that person who looks at everyone else and wonders how they all have it figured out while I am still making sense of my life. I am constantly looking outside myself and comparing what I do to what others are achieving.
Having read the author's fiction books and trying out her recipes in UPSCALE DOWNHOME, I knew I liked the author's style. However, what I didn't expect was to read GIRL WASH YOUR FACE and have a lightbulb moment. Hollis lays it all out there with heart and humor. If you don't feel motivated to get out of your own way and start seeing that you need to show up for yourself, then maybe this isn't the right book for you. And that is okay. For me, I felt as if Hollis opened my eyes to what I knew but didn't want to face. Why do I just sit on the sidelines and hope for things to happen to me? I need to put in the work and make it happen.
I highly recommend this book for women who are searching to regain their essence and passion for whatever they feel they have lost.
