Girl, Wash Your Face: Stop Believing the Lies About Who You Are so You Can Become Who You Were Meant to Be
I don’t need to read this book.
Since this book is pretty much based on lies the author…as well as millions of women around the world tell themselves…I wanted to share some truth bombs/confessions. Deep breath….here we go.
A summary of how I came to read this book.
I am a small business owner who uses Instagram and started seeing this book everywhere. Everyone and their mom was posting pictures of it. So I figured out I would research it first. First truth. I have the attention span of a two year old when it comes to reading non-fiction books. Give me a mystery or thriller and I am so lost in those kinds of books nothing is going to stop me.
However, reading non-fiction….lets just say every little thing…even my dog’s breathing distracts me. Still, some self help books or whatever you want to call them are in my queue and dang it…I will get to them SOMEDAY.
After realizing this book was not called Girl, Wash Your Hair like I thought, I found that this is classified as a Christian self help book. Seeing that made me seriously second guess wasting time trying to get my hands on it. I am not very religious and reading mind numbing dribble about how religion solves everything is in truth, not my cup of tea. Or wine.
Plus, next truth, I had no clue who this girl was. “Oh…..this isn’t the same girl as that famous HGTV person!?” I do like Disney though so after finding that out, I was pretty much sold.
Then I found an ebook and audio version at my library. So I was like, whatever, it’s only like 200 hundred pages, and if I don’t like it I’ll just nix it and go back to my norm of reading about jilted ex wives with amnesia or something.
I was sucked in the very first page.
Hallelujah, someone admitted that they too shave their toes! When you find a writer who admits
to having little quirks you, a similar father and childhood, and notice the way they write is similar to how you speak/write/internal dialogue with yourself, you know you are going to soon become a creeper and feel like you are best friends.
This book covers it all. Lies we tell ourselves about everything…relationships, weight, kids, work, etc. I’ll admit some parts did not pertain to me in any way shape or form (don’t yet have kids) yet I loved reading even those chapters. I honestly can’t articulate how much I liked this book. My finger hurts from highlighting so much and you know it’s good when you immediately buy a hard cover version because reading it just once won’t cut it.
Seriously do yourself a favor and grab a glass of wine, a jug of water…no diet Coke though…turn on some 90’s music as background noise and make this your next “to read” book.
