Just Say No
There’s a quote that you may have seen that goes something like this: "Every day do something that scares you." It’s attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt. In the first chapter of this book the author, Suzanne Braun Levine, describes how one fine day what she did that scared her was not rappelling off a ninety-foot cliff, which she did. It was saying No when she was told to go back up. Saying No was the unexpected thing to do. Saying No was brave. Saying No delineated her independence. Her gesture was breathtaking, liberating, hilarious!
