This book motivated me to flip my routine. You can find out more about what this means as you read it.

Rachel Hollis relays truthful events in her life and uses a playful and personal way of writing to the reader. I found myself wishing that I’d found the kind of inspirational writing in my 20s! But it does still apply as I enjoy my 40th year.

This book gives you that energy for your life – the same energy (from my past) that comes from shooting pool and listening to your favorite pump-up jam before the swim meet of your life!

It reminds you of how beautiful it is to recognize the blessings in your life. Those in your life, such as your family and friends, who help to teach and guide you (and vice versa). I already knew many of these things before reading this book, however these pages gave me time to reflect and enjoy life with all that is in mine. To just be. Recognize how much there is to be thankful for and how important it is to live in the present moments.

I pondered when reading this why it has taken me to ‘age over the hill’ before realizing that what other people think shouldn’t be my top priority? We need to take care of ourselves first, before we can really be there for others. We should be healthy about taking in what others think of us. Understand constructive criticism and appreciate those that care about us. We can do that without taking everything to heart. Be strong.

If you are wondering if it’s worth checking it out at the library, yes! And if you are thinking about adding it to your Amazon cart, yes, it’s worth it. I’m going to go on a limb and say that you will enjoy it, get something out of it and most likely recommend it to someone else.
