I didn’t get that same feeling from this book. I wasn't initially sure why, neither. Was because I didn't like it as much as the first one? Or was because it just didn’t resonate with me the same way? I wasn’t quite sure. I decided to step away and let it sit for a couple days.
Then, recently, I picked it back up and re-skimmed some parts I highlighted during my first read-through. I came to the following realization: This book isn’t SUPPOSED to make me feel the same way the first one did. In part 1, Sonia gave us a glimpse of her life and shows her own vulnerability. She’s not doing that in this one - she’s allowing us to think about our own lives and challenges us to be vulnerable and honest with ourselves. Of course, Sonia sprinkles in her undeniable wit and sense of humor (she's a hoot and a half!), but she's no longer the main character. We are.
This book doesn't revolve around a central villain, neither (thanks to Sonia, I'm going to second guess naming my first son 'Eric'). Instead, the narratives/stories are much more scarce and her lessons/advice take the forefront of her pages.
All of her steps/tips are grounded in one fundamental belief - Always be your true self and don't mind what anyone thinks. She’s honest and real in a concise and direct way. It also has its fair share of gems that’ll have you nodding your head (one quote that resonates is: "If you do not engage in the fight for authenticity or you choose to follow the path someone else has set out for you, you're not the only one that misses out; the world misses out on you" *#AllofTheSnaps*).
Thanks for the reminder, Sonia. In a world that's always trying to make us conform and "fit in", it's nice to see that there's at least one person who thinks that the world should accept each and every one of us for who we truly are. Keep doing you, girl! #KillingIt
P.S. When is the audio book coming out? I don’t know if I can do the sassy, Miami girl accent the justice it deserves.
