20 Empowering Life Lessons from Girl, Wash Your Face By RACHEL HOLLIS





If you are a woman who thinks that she has to sacrifice her career in order to have a good family life or a working mom trying to juggle career and kids, I recommend you read Rachel Hollis’s book Girl, Wash Your Face. You’ll definitely relate to it and it’ll help you feel less alone in this. Here are 20 of the books’ quotes that spoke to me most:


1.       ‘’Stop accepting less than you deserve. Stop buying things you can’t afford to impress people you don’t even really like. Stop eating your feelings instead of working through them. Stop buying your kids’ love with food, or toys, or friendship because it’s easier than parenting. Stop abusing your body and your mind. Stop! Just get off the never-ending track. Your life is supposed to be a journey from one unique place to another; it’s not supposed to be a merry-go-round that brings you back to the same spot over and over again.’’

2.       ‘’Comparison is the death of joy, and the only person you need to be better than is the one you were yesterday.’’
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
3.       ‘’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.’’
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
4.       "Failing is much easier to go through if no one is there to see it."
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
5.       "As long as you allow someone to treat you badly, they will continue to do so. If you're not able to value yourself, no one else will either." 
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
6.       "Sometimes choosing to walk away, even if it means breaking your own heart, can be the greatest act of self-love you have access to."
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
7.       "You must choose to be happy, grateful, and fulfilled. If you make that choice every single day, regardless of where you are at or what's happening, you will be happy." 
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
8.       "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, Girl, Wash Your Face
9.       "When you really want something, you will find a way. When you don't really want something, you will find an excuse."
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
10.   "Our words have power, but our actions shape our lives."
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face

11.   "Embracing chaos might be the journey we take to finding peace." 
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
12.   "Our bodies are incredible. They can do unbelievable things. They will also tell you exactly what they need if you're willing to listen. And if you're not, if you try to do too many things without rest, they will absolutely shut down to get what they need."
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
13.   "You cannot ignore your pain. You cannot ever leave it behind completely. The only thing you can do is find a way to embrace the good that came out of it." 
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
14.   "Sadness and pain are things you have to sit with and get to know or you'll never be able to move on."
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
15.   "Friends, it's not about the goal or the dream you have. It's about who you become on your way to that goal."
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
16.   "Your dream is worth fighting for, and while you're not in control of what life throws at you, you are in control of the fight."
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
17.   "'No' doesn't mean that you stop; it simply means that you change course in order to make it to your destination."
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
18.   ‘’Those dreams you have for yourself are not silly; they are the road map to your divine calling! Don’t sit this one out. Don’t let someone else’s opinion of you determine your worth. Don’t miss out on the chance to live the life of incredible possibility in front of you.You were not made to be small.You are not a little girl.You are a grown woman, and it’s time you grew up. Become exactly who God calls you to be.’’
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face

19. "Some days I feel as if I'm getting closer to the best version of me. Other days I eat cream cheese for dinner. But the gift of life is that we get another chance tomorrow."
-          Rachel Hollis, Girl, Wash Your Face
20.   "And on the days that seem the hardest, you'll remember that—by an inch or a mile—forward momentum is the only requirement."
