Thanks to my homegirl Rachel, I’m making some life changes and finally making and crossing off BIG goals!
“Girl, Wash Your Face”
This was the hilarious introduction to Rachel Hollis filled with personal stories that brought a lesson to a point. I wish “Girl, Stop Apologizing” had more hilarious stories like the first- but Hollis was too busy with the second book creating solutions to our problems! “Girl, Wash Your face” brought up issues you may not have known you had- while “Girl, Stop Apologizing” was the direct instruction manual to know where you should go after you’ve acknowledged the problem.
There were several pages in “Girl, Stop Apologizing” where I found myself highlighting phases, laughing out loud and sending screen- shots to friends. Both books are written for the everyday woman. Not just the single working lady, the stay at home mom, or the grandma who has “lived”, but EVERYONE. Hollis asks us to make goals and to improve. Because: we, are made for more! Hollis was able to share her story and her advice while telling her readers in a hilarious “take it or leave it” fashion persuaded me to not only keep reading “Girl Stop Apologizing” but to also reevaluate my life for the better. Thanks to my homegirl Rachel I’m making some life changes!
I cannot wait to share this phenomenal book with other readers across the nation. So, like the first book- we at Mommy Convos have created an in-depth book club questions- this time I’m going to share the top 10 questions you *need to ask during book club. And then, because I am a nerd, we will have another sections of questions with page references so you can have a more in-depth book club meeting! (These type of discussions are my favorite!)
Without further ado here’s our top 10 questions you need to ask during your book club meeting of Rachel Hollis’ book: “Girl, Stop Apologizing”.
1.) What was your biggest take away from the novel?
2.) What did this book inspire you to do in your own life?
3.) What excuses do you find yourself having a difficult time letting go?
4.) Out of the five behaviors- which behavior would you like to adopt?
5.) Hollis suggests six skills to acquire- which skill have you already acquired? Where can you improve?
6.) Which area of the book did you have the most “a-ha” moments? What were they?
7.) Which section of the book was the hardest for you to read? Why?
8.) What did you write down for your: 10.10.1? What are you working on today? How can your tribe help you?
9.) What did you think about the vase analogy on page 121? Can you relate? What can you change for yourself?
Last two quotes:
1.) “The incredible thing is, by embracing your calling and refusing to hide your glow, you wouldn’t just make your world brighter. You’d like the way for the women who would come along behind you.” (Page 206)
2.) “Doubt will kill more dreams than failure ever will. But believe but believe in yourself will give you the strength to get up get back up again and again… It’s not your job to make yourself fit into anyone else’s ideal. It’s your job to start believing in who you are and what you’re capable of. It’s time to be yourself unapologetic and apologetically and to show the world what happens when a woman challenges herself for greatness. It’s time to stop apologizing for who you are. It’s time to become who you were made to be.” (Page 209)
