For those of you who don’t know, Sarah Knight is the author of two books, one being called “The life-changing magic of not giving a F**k” and the other, “Get your sh*t together” both of which I have read and thoroughly enjoyed. After reading both of these books, I found myself thinking why do I worry/concern myself with things that don’t really matter and so they changed my mindset a bit.
When I heard that Sarah had released a new book, “You Do You”, it was a no brainer, I had to read it if her content was a good as the previous two books. However, I think because both of the two previous books becoming best sellers, the price point was a little too high for me, so I had to save up for it and wait a little longer for me to be able to read it.
Sarah’s style of writing is very blunt and to the point. In “You do you”, she explores topics within her chapters such as “how to accept but ignore those people who have different opinions to you that tell you that you’re doing things wrong”, “how to prove those people who doubted what you were capable of wrong” and “how you can be selfish and not perfect without hurting anyone”. The book also has an underlying theme of asking “why do we let what other people expect hold us back”, which pops up throughout the book.
I will admit that I found “You do you” a little hard to get stuck into at the start, but about a quarter of the way through, it became much easier and I started to picture myself in some of those situations. For example, where I have done something because that’s what’s expected of me and not necessarily because its something I have wanted to do.
Overall, I think “You do you” is a book everyone should read because it really opens your mind and can change your mindset for the better. It can help you with confidence and hopefully allows you to achieve what your goals are and you can hopefully have a few laughs along the way too!
