Saying "yes" to everything that terrified her...

Rhimes hadn’t realized how much she’d limited her world, but an offhand complaint from her older sister leads the Queen of Thursday night TV (showrunner for Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away With Murder, etc.) to a total reevaluation of her life. A serious introvert locked into her small circle of friends and family, she said "no" to everything else, so in 2014 she began a year of "yes". Yes to everything that terrified her—a commencement speech, Jimmy Kimmel, playing with her children when she was supposed to be at an awards show. This is a fun listen, read by the author, which looks at themes of challenging yourself, not putting off, and being your best self.
