Book Review: Love Your Life, Not Theirs

This is just what I needed to read at this point in my life. This book was life changing!

I had the opportunity to review Rachel Cruze's new book, Love Your Life, Not Theirs. Now, if you're not familiar with Rachel Cruze she is the daughter of money guru, Dave Ramsey. However, she has a fresh new take on money and how society these days has certain expectations of us financially. 

In her latest book, she does an amazing job at conveying her 7 money habits in order to live the life you want. Everyone can relate to this book in one way or another; social media comparisons, dealing with the financial pressure of society, the power of creating habits with money and the importance of giving. 

A few of my favorite Rachel quotes from the book:
"Most of what you see on Facebook and Instagram is enhanced. It's a public display of our best self."
 “I believe that our culture is struggling with the diseases of selfishness and discontentment, and generosity is the only cure I know.” 
"It made me realize how important it is not just to be aware of your habit but also to take control of them if you want to truly take control of your life."

This is a must read book! I highly recommend it.
