Rachel Hollis is the founder and CEO of, and has built a large online Community by sharing tips for living a messy, but meaningful life. In this book you’ll learn twenty lies and misconceptions that hold us back from living joyfully and productively.

The biggest takeaway of this book is that you, and only you, are responsible for who you become and how happy you are. But you’ve also heard lots of lies perpetuated by society, the media and our families. These lies are detrimental to our sense of worth and our ability to function. Recognizing these lies is the key to growing into a better version of ourselves. Although a lot of this advice is geared towards women, there’s something here for everybody looking to find meaning in their messy life (which is all of us).

Lie #1: Something else will make me happy.

Seasons or instances will make you feel out of control, but they should not be the whole of your existence. This is your life. You are meant to be the hero of your own story. Take responsibility for your own life and your own happiness.   Changing your location is only changing your geography. Moving doesn’t change who you are. You must choose to be happy, grateful, and fulfilled, no matter where you are. Things that may help: Stop comparing yourself to others. Surround yourself with positivity. Figure out what makes you happy and do those things.
