This month marks a year from when I embarked upon writing a new book … one that would help me and one that I hope would help others. Titled, The Brown Betties Guide: Knowing Your NO, the idea came about as I realized during a pivotal moment in my life that I wish I had said no, sooner. I wasn’t blaming myself for not saying no right away, but always the one to try to learn, I kept questioning, at what point during the event that happened could (should) I have said NO?
I feel that saying no is a learned response and I am still on a journey to get it into practice. My story is not uncommon.
I reached out to other women to submit their stories; I knew I wasn’t alone. I knew we could learn from each other because that IS the Brown Bettie way.
The book is still in progress, but we’re starting the discussion now. There is no reason to wait.
In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, my friend from the days when we rode our bicylces to pom practice in good ole Kenosha, Wisconsin and I will talk about finding our no. Join us. It’s free. Online. Register to get your Zoom link.
