Nothing really inspirational about this book at all. It had a handful (from what I could finish listening to) of funny/ interesting moments but If you're not a mom, need to hear something more than "you can do it" to get motivated, or the idea ofl istening to a privileged white woman modestly brag about her life with celebrities sounds annoying to you then just don't even bother.
listening this book was like being at a great motivational speech. Even though maybe I didn't agree with every single thing the author talked about, I got so many great points, and really great ideas of where to start making changes that I want to make for myself. Very inspiring, I'm going out to Take On The World now!
The book was semi decent, until it essentially ended in a rampage of yelling about treating yourself like shit. I think it was maybe intended to mean that you should take care of yourself and nurture your body, but it came across more as when you prioritize yourself, you won't be fat. I found that disappointing since many times in her book she tries to relate to her audience by sharing her own struggles with weight loss and body image.
I am a super busy mama and I roll my eyes when I hear a mama say they are reading a great book or just finished a book. I think to myself how in the... do you find time to do that. So I found bestbooksales on Google. Girl I deep cleaned my kitchen and front room for two days while listening to this book and finished it in those two days. I cried when I finished because I couldn’t believe I finished a book in TWO days and everyone survived and I still got things done and homeschooled. And not just any book but a book I SOOOOO desperately needed to hear. I laughed out loud, I cried out loud and I yelled out loud. This book will be a monthly go to for a reminder of who I am and who I can become. I’m so thankful to have found a way to read this book. Super life changing.
I am a 44 year old pastors wife and mom to 4 amazing children and this book has been life changing for me. I had been feeling like I’m too old to have dreams or to do anything new but this book has encouraged me to dream bigger and not limit myself. There are a few books that I listen to on audible and think “well, that was nice” but there are others that I will listen to again AND have to purchase the hard copy to highlight my favorite parts and revisit. This book is one that I have both! Rachel, thank you for being vulnerable and putting these words on pages for us to read! ❤️
