NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Life is not perfect. It’s dirty, ugly and there’s a constant struggle to live up to society’s unrealistic expectations, especially for women. But Rachel Hollis – founder of TheChicSite.com and CEO of Chic Media, regular contributor to HuffPost, PopSugar, and frequent expert on “The Rachael Ray Show,” “The Talk,” “Extra,” and more – believes that no one needs to live in a state of constant sadness, regret and paralyzing unhappiness. Everyone can and should have a happy life, an exuberant life, but it is up to them to make this happen.
In her long-awaited book in Spanish, with more than 2 million copies sold in English, Girl, Wash your Face: Stop believing lies about who you are so you can become who you should be (Amiga, lávate esa cara: Deja de creer mentiras sobre quién eres para que te conviertas en quien deberías ser– April 16, 2019; 9781404111509 on pre-sale at Amazon y Barnes & Noble) Hollis invites readers into her world of controlled chaos, revealing 30-some years of life’s battle wounds—including postpartum depression, a difﬁcult childhood, discovering her brother after he committed suicide, being a self-confessed workaholic, and suffering from stress-induced Bell’s Palsy, just to name a few. But, she also encourages women to embrace the day-to-day craziness. With sometimes brutal honesty, she challenges women to want more, work harder, be transparent about the good times and the bad, and know that they are ultimately responsible for who they become and their own happiness.
“So many women don’t feel in control of their own lives,” says Hollis. “They’re waiting for someone or something to point them where they should go. Or worse, they feel totally overwhelmed by a million possible suggestions for how they should be, so everything they try feels wrong. I want to have a frank conversation about all the crazy, scary, mundane, or taboo situations I’ve had to walk through because it gives other women permission to do the same. I want them to know that change is possible and it’s a valuable pursuit in your life.”
As a wife, working mother, entrepreneur, writer, and former foster parent who has dealt with myriad insecurities about her body and relationships, Hollis brings humor, honesty and a no-nonsense approach to addressing the many hurtful lies women tell themselves including:
- I’ll start tomorrow.
- I’m bad at sex
- I’m not good enough
- My weight defines me
- Loving him is enough for me
- I’m not a good mom.
- I need a drink.
- There’s only one right way to be
- By now, he’s supposed to have accomplished a lot more.
By sharing raw, authentic truths from her own life, she aims to have a real conversation about her experiences—the good, and the bad—and ultimately give other women permission to do the same. With chapter ending sections titled Things that helped me . . ., Hollis walks alongside women and provides tangible tips and tricks to overcome the lies that permeate their thinking.
“I’ve tried to be totally transparent about my life,” says Hollis. “I don’t sugar coat anything and I’ve risked angering or hurting people by being this honest because I believe in the transformative power of speaking your truth. But my ultimate hope with Girl, Wash Your Face is that women realize THEY are in control of what happens to their life. If you want to make change, YOU have to do it. Nobody else can; it’s on you.”
