Be Your Own Person

Year of YesHave you heard about the book, Year of Yes – How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person!?  A friend recently recommended this book as a fun and interesting read.  It’s rare that I laugh out loud when reading a biography but oh boy did I laugh over and over again as I devoured this book.  As a single self-employed working mother, I don’t have much spare time to sit and read but this book I couldn’t put down.  It was a wonderful break from diaper changing and nursing.  But enough about me – I’m recommending this book because aside from being utterly entertaining it also has some profound, positive and helpful tips (especially if you are an introvert). Shonda talks about motherhood, relationships, diversity, body image and work pressures in such a real and refreshing way.  In addition to be fully engaging, I was more importantly moved and empowered by her wisdom, wit and transparency. Would love to hear your thoughts after reading it.
