A client recently recommended the book “Girl Wash Your Face” by Rachel Hollis. In it, Rachel addresses 20 lies that women typically tell themselves; her job is to debunk those myths and she uses her own story and humour to do it. Here are just a few of her musings:
- I surround myself with positivity. I cringe even writing that because it sounds like a poster you’d see taped to the wall of your eighth grade gym class – but cheesy or not, it’s gospel. You become who you surround yourself with. You become what you consume. If you find yourself in a slump or feel as though you’re living in a negative space, take a good hard look at who and what you see every day.
- This was her message to new moms or soon-to-be-mamas: A new mother’s daily list of goals should boil down to: a) Take care of the baby, b) Take care of yourself. Boom. The End.
- Set goals, not time limits. I love goals. They can help you become your best self….but big dreams shouldn’t have expiration dates. As long as you’re working toward the things you hope to accomplish, it shouldn’t matter if it takes you a month or a decade.
An important note: The Lie: I Will Never Get Past This, is a wonderful chapter on how to get past the traumatic experiences we have had in our lives.
“Girl Wash Your Face” is a worthy read.
