Taken From Goodreads

My thoughts:

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading this self-book since I didn’t know anything about Rachel Hollis. In the first few chapters she shares how she overcame her long time addiction with soda and that’s when I really started thinking this book was going to be good for me, as giving up soda is something I personally struggle with.

Rachel openly discusses her shortcomings at home and in her marriage in the book and it instantly makes you like her. She discusses how she was a workaholic, she would give all she had until she had nothing left for herself or her family(I can totally relate). Chapters walks through her rejections, shortcomings and life setbacks that have molded who she is and what’s made her stronger.

Each of Rachel’s chapters describes “a lie” she at one point believed about her life, for example; I’m just not a good mother or I’ll never be a writer, and she goes on to undo that “lie” with a more accurate, positive belief.

Her writing is honest, upbeat, and at times very funny with her lighthearted confessions. One one chapter she admits to having had a celebrity crush on Matt Damon when she was much younger, even and jokingly shares her thoughts that they would one day marry. Haven’t we all? 🤣

I think this is a great book for any struggling mother(that’s all of us) in need of a positive boost, and some refreshing ways to rethink our life!

Thank you to NetGalley, Nelson Books and the author Rachel Hollis for this copy in exchange for my honest review, all opinions are my own. When I am reviewing a book from NetGalley I have it sent directly to my Kindle Paperwhite. I’ve only had it for a few months but I never leave the house without it anymore! I love it!❤️
