Author accepts challenge to Step Out of Comfort Zone

Take the challenge

Now that we’re a few months into a new year, how are those resolutions coming along?

According to Statista, the most common New Year’s resolutions are to shed pounds, work out and eat healthy. It’s OK if you’ve long forgotten them; research indicates most of us do.

Now that we have that out of the way, here’s something simple to focus on for the rest of 2022 — and our Good Read of the Month will help motivate you do just that.

Say yes.

The Year of Yes” by Shonda Rhimes is a very personal memoir that meanders through her life before committing to a year of yes of her own.

Rhimes, well known as the groundbreaking creator of hit TV shows “Grey’s Anatomy,” “How to Get Away with Murder” and “Scandal,” seemed to use her characters as a voice she couldn’t find in real life. She avoided public appearances, had anxiety about interviews and media, and used her busy life mothering her children as an excuse to be a homebody.

It all changed over Thanksgiving dinner when her sister, Delorse, gave her a wake-up call by saying, “You never say yes to anything.”

Rhimes embraced a challenge to say yes to everything that she feared for the period of one year.

The result is a poignant, intimate and funny memoir that chronicles how the ensuing year went for Rhimes. It will resonate and motivate.

Say yes.

Yes to a good read, a motivational delicacy and stepping out of your comfort zone.
