Recently, I’ve found myself struggling with overthinking and anxiety. I’m not usually an anxious person, but over the last couple of years, I’ve noticed a pattern when it comes to decision making. No matter the topic, if a decision is going to impact my life (which is most decisions, honestly), I start to overthink and work myself up. Can you relate? I’m sure most of us can.
“Men tell stories, women get on with it. For us it was a shadow war. There were no parades for us when it was over, no medals or mentions in history books. We did what we had to during the war, and when it was over, we picked up the pieces and started our lives over.” – Kristen Hannah, The Nightingale
Books were created for various reasons. One of these reasons, I believe, is to spark inspiration in other people’s lives. On two occasions, There You’ll Find Me, has been that kind of book to me. I stumbled upon it accidentally a couple of years ago and then re-read it last year; both times, I learned something new about myself and got the answers I’d been looking for.
Girl, Wash Your Face is a raw, real, and honest book that makes you question some, if not most, areas in your life. Rachel Hollis writes from experience but also challenges us to look into our own lives and see if we’re walking with the right mindset or in the lie. This book, from the first chapter, inspired me!
