The Good Girl’s Guide To Getting Lost is a memoir that I truly believe women everywhere will be able to relate to. The story takes you along for the ride of a lifetime as we get a glimpse into the journey of self discovery for author Rachel Friedman. Rachel talks about her experiences on 3 continents; the lessons she learns and the many people she meets along the way.
For me, upon reading, it’s a reminder of how we all can become engulfed by life’s day to day tasks forgetting that there is a world beyond the walls of our cubicles, cars and homes. Her journey hits close to home and tugs at my heart as I read her words and discover that they mimic my own longing for life’s many adventures. The story starts out with Rachel 20 years old and almost a senior in college and as it progresses, we as readers grow with each insight and chapter just as Rachel does.
We’re all looking for our purpose, some more actively than others, and the book definitely shows you that we all deem purpose to have many different definitions. Some of us are happy to find a high paying job, while others are happy just to do what they love, some chase a career path and others chase love. or family. The memoir shows us how much we can learn from others and how much we can learn about ourselves from being in another country or out of our comfort zones. I honestly think ladies everywhere should read this book straight or of high school, or in college, so that they can understand that yes you do have to become an adult but the world is full of possibilities beyond belief and that traveling is one of them.
Rachel Friedman does an awesome job of writing her story that anyone can relate to. I found myself torn between not wanting to put the book down and not wanting it to end. I can truly say this book has inspired me to want to look further into my life and enjoy each day even more. I’m left tempted enough to just throw caution to the wind and pack my own backpack, lol… well, maybe not just yet but I definitely will be taking a journey of my own in the nearer future.
