Book of the week: Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes.
This was an instant New York Times bestseller from the creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away With Murder.
In this book, Shonda shares how saying YES changed her life.
Her iconic characters boldly speak their minds in her TV series and so did she in this book.
We couldn’t have guessed she is an introvert though. With three children at home and three hit television shows to say Shonda was busy will be an understatement.
This poignant, intimate, and hilarious memoir explores Shonda’s life before her Year of Yes—from her nerdy, book-loving childhood to her devotion to creating television characters who reflected the world she saw around her. The book chronicles her life after her Year of Yes had begun—when Shonda forced herself out of the house and onto the stage; when she learned to explore, empower, applaud, and love her truest self. Yes!
The book encourages the following:
1. Give and find priority in the things that make u happy. (Kids, partner, pets etc)
2. Taking time out, do what you love and like to do but don’t forget to live.
3. Take on challenges that scare the heck out of you and facing it head-on.
We definitely give it a
