A while back, Natasha Kogan sent me a copy of her new book -- The Daring Female's Guide to Ecstatic Living. After one look, I knew I would like this book!
Basically the book is a well structured listing of 30 dares to help you improve your life. It includes everything from "Dare to Learn Someting New Every Day" (you know I like that one!) to "Dare to Just get in a Good Mood". But she doesn't just list the dares. She writes a bit about her experiences and perspectives, gives you suggestions on how to take on the dares and even has little writing exercises to get you going.
One dare that I took to heart was "Dare to Not Label Yourself". Why? Well, I always thought of myself as an introvert. I just took it for granted that I was shy and that I couldn't do certain things as a result. I never thought that I could do a podcast! But I just went for it. And you all have been very kind. Nothing bad happened and now I don't feel like such a wall flower!
My next dare? I'm going to read a magazine article every day. Goodness knows I have the magazines around the house!
If you feel like you are stuck in a rut -- in your creative life, career or personal life you may want to pick up a copy of this book. There are literally hundreds of great ideas packed inside. Who knows, one of them may just be the start of something wonderful for you!
