I have been reading your blog for quite awhile now... and have never left a comment (until now of course). You are a deep and talented thinker and writer. I have never thought of "no" as being a powerful word, but your writing has helped me to see that it truly is. I will practice using it more often and begin saying "yes" to the many things I often think are too selfish to spend my time on.
:)
Thanks,

This is so interesting. I woke up this morning thinking about a blog similar to this. Check it out.

I just posted it Whitney. It turned out to be another tale about Etta. Say yes was a hard lesson for her to learn.

Thank you for checking.

whitney i love this concept- you are absolutely right. we aren't "taking anything away" from ourselves when we say no. we are giving back to ourselves, essentially.

thank you so much for pointing out that we can replace the NO with a YES! I LOVE IT!

I have to take a rain check on guest blogging. I have had some
health and family 'stuff' come up all at the same time this past week and just can't put my heart and mind into as I should and as I want to. I apologize for this. I have been excited about the possibility and the honor of you asking me to participate in your own blog which I really enjoy.

I am learning to prioritize, that is for sure...If in [a few months]
you feel that it would still be pertinent to pick this up then I would be happy to refocus on it. Again, I am sorry if this causes you any inconveniences with your blog.

Thanks for posting the link to this; I needed to read it today!

About this blog

  • When I took a sabbatical from Wall Street to pursue a different dream and help others live theirs, I learned that women in the U.S. may be placated, even pampered, but because we aren't dreaming, we are also desperate and depressed. Drawing on a variety of sources, ranging from academic studies to pop culture, dare to dream encourages us to dream. And then to act on our dreams.
