Girl, Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis
We all have things we have been told or thoughts we have developed about ourselves that can end up running our lives, and honestly, many time they are lies we tell ourselves: we aren’t worthy, we can’t have success, we can’t start today… But really you ARE worthy, you CAN have success, and you CAN start today. Breaking down the lies we tell ourselves is what Rachel Hollis digs into in her book Girl, Wash Your Face, which is our September book of the month.
Shaunae’s favorite chapter, chapter 10: the lie – I should be farther along by now.
- -“I believe that you are not a mistake – and feeling guilt about who you are does a disservice to yourself and the Creator who made you. You-the real you-is not an accident.”
- “Maybe it’s just that you don’t have enough experience yet…maybe that
goal wasn’t ever meant to be yours. Maybe you are destined for
something so much cooler, which won’t come until five years down the
Sarah’s favorite chapter, chapter 12: the lie – I need to make myself smaller.
- ” I was making myself small. I was performing just enough to gain your attention but not truly being myself for fear of what everyone might think of the real me. ”
- “I realized I was not the only woman making myself small to make others feel comfortable”
