In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, I asked Rachel Hollis to come on the show today to talk about the new book she wrote during the pandemic. “Didn’t See That Coming: Putting Life Back Together When Your World Falls Apart” captures the pain of the past year and offers ways to look at the lessons and growth, then move through it to something new.

“2020... what a year, right? Rachel says. “It's been so freaking hard for so many people, but even in the hardship, there's beauty. We've seen humans doing incredible things, and our essential workers, and our healthcare workers and people are so inspiring. We've had more time to connect with our families, and just all of these things.”

Rachel is one of the most sought-after speakers, plays host to one of today’s top business podcasts, and uses her platform to empower and embolden women around the world. She laid the foundation for her lifestyle brand and media company with the same unfiltered honesty and staunch inclusivity that made her a New York Times bestselling author of “Girl, Wash Your Face” and “Girl, Stop Apologizing.” In both, she shared her most personal stories.

“The reality is that every new level you get to, there's an old expression in church that says, new levels, new devils, so every level that you get to, you're going to encounter new hardships,” she says.

“The first thing is you have to be honest about what actually is happening, not what you are telling yourself is happening, because when I think of the question of, everything feels hard, for me, what I want to follow that up with is, is everything hard, or does everything feel hard?" Rachel says. "Those are two completely different things.”

We talk about all the ways you are so much more than the trauma you are living in, whatever that trauma might be. You can let go of guilt, hack your courage and show up for yourself, your family and your community. You can choose joy even when life sucks.
