Detail Girl Wash Your Face Summary
Chapter 1: The Lie- Something else will make you happy
In this chapter, Rachel says that “You must choose to be happy, grateful, and fulfilled. If you make that choice every single day, regardless of where you are or what’s happening, you will be happy.”
When you’re engaged and involved and choosing to enjoy your own life, it doesn’t matter where you are, or frankly, what negative things get hurled at you. You’ll still find happiness because it’s not about where you are butwho you are.
Things which helped Rachel :
1) she stopped comparing herself: she stopped comparing herself to other people and she also stopped comparing herself to whoever she thought she was supposed to be. The comparison is the death of joy, and the only person you need to be better than is the one you were yesterday.
2) she surrounded herself with positivity: You become who you surround yourself with. You become what you consume.
3) she figured out what makes her happy and she used to do things.
Chapter 2: The Lie- I’ll Start Tomorrow
In this chapter, Rachel talks about her own experience. She says that she can’t count the number of diets she had tried she can’t tell you the number of times she has made plans to go to the gym and then blew them off. The number of half marathons she signed up for, paid the entry fee for, and then quietly pretended not to remember when it was time to actually train? Number of times she has declared, “From here on out, that she will be going to walk a mile every morning before work!” and then never made it past the third day? Infinity.
This is the habit of almost everyone, We talk about the things we’d like to do, be, try, and accomplish, but once we get to the moment of actually doing it, we fold faster than a card table after bunco night. Maybe we’ve created this habit because we were brought up observing this pattern. Magazines and TV shows spend a lot of time focusing on what to do when we fall off the wagon rather than teaching us how to stay on it in the first place. Life happens, and the plans we make fall through—but when it becomes such a regular occurrence that the promises we make hold very little actual power in our lives, we need to check ourselves.
Rachel says that if you choose not to break another promise to yourself, then you will force yourself to slow down. AUTHOR SAYS “You cannot keep every commitment, promise, goal, and idea without intentionality. If you recognize that your words have power and that your commitments carry covenant weight, you won’t agree to anything so easily.”
You need to decide and ask yourself what you are promising is truly possible and realistic and will you able to achieve it. example if it’s more realistic and achievable to commit to two beast-mode sessions and then one power walk with your neighbor. You’ll slow down and think things through.
Rachel says “You won’t just talk about a goal; you’ll plan for how you can meet it. You’ll set a goal and surprise yourself when you achieve it. You’ll teach yourself a new way to behave and set a standard for the type of person you truly are—not the one you’ve dreamed about becoming, but who you practice being every single day.”

Chapter 3: The lie- I am not Good enough
Here author says that we are made for work, yes, but we are not made to strive 24 hours without rest, without family or friends or without some peaceful time with God. The author says that when our priorities get all messed up in trying to prove that we are, we find ourselves burned out, struggling physically and mentally and doing a lot LESS than if we had just taken time to rest in the first place.
Never forget where you are, what you have Because that self-realization will motivate you to reach where you want to be. Always know your priorities. Never forget the people and the support which motivates you and makes you happy. Because motivation support and happiness will always help you to work hard and be at the top. Don’t just make work your priority and don’t forget everything else. Prioritize your personal and professional life.
