Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes
Synopsis: “How to Dance It Out, Stand in the Sun and Be Your Own Person” Shonda Rhimes takes us behind the scenes of her very personal life and how some muttered words from her sister became a challenge that changed Shonda’s life : “You never say yes to anything”.
I bought this book out of the need to just try something different from my usual pile of YA fiction. And I thought, “oh Shonda Rhimes, I’ve heard of you and this sound interesting”.
You see, I’m one of those people who is aware of their flaws, but I tell myself, as long as I know them, I’m half way there. BUT I rarely do anything to improve on them and that is why Year of Yes was an eye-opener.
Year of Yes touches upon how Rhimes must accept herself for who she is because she has worked hard for it, how to enjoy the moments in life, how hard it truly is for women to juggle family and career, how to accept the hardest challenges we think is in our way and many more life fulling topics. She doesn’t shy away from painting the truth behind why she started this journey and how hard every YES was to make.
Shonda Rhimes created a masterpiece that keeps you eager for her next reveal, almost like her TV shows, although I have only caught an episode, here and there.
I’d recommend this book to everyone out there. We can all learn one or two things from other peoples journey!
