Today We are featuring our Favorite Post by @ msrachelhollis
It’s book launch day and today, dang it, I’m celebrating!! I’m celebrating everyone who preordered Girl, Stop Apologizing (over 210k+ of you 😭) thank you so much!! I’m celebrating the months of writing to get the first draft. I’m celebrating the eight rounds of edits that came after. I’m celebrating every time I fought past the anxiety of doing a follow up to something as big as Girl, Wash Your Face, and went ahead and kept going.
I’m celebrating every person who wrote a nasty article about me in the past 12 months (what’s up haters 😘) if the last book about women taking ownership of their lives upset you, a book about women living boldly and unapologetically should give you enough fodder and hate mail until at least the new year. Cheers!
I’m celebrating every conference who booked me to check a box— I might have been invited as the token woman, but this short gal with extensions is more alpha on stage than any man you can find.
It’s been a year since the last book came out and today I’m celebrating how far we’ve come and how far I hope this new work helps us go. If you’re a dreamer, if you’re a hustler, if you’re a girl who doesn’t fit into their ideals... YOU AREN’T ALONE AND YOU AREN’T WRONG!! Remember Esther? Maybe you have come into your position for such a time as THIS!
The quote on my bathroom mirror is this week’s reminder for me, for you, for anyone who’s vision for their life or work makes other people uncomfortable. I made sure I got another anthem...
