    As soon as I saw this in my Bloglovin’ feed, I knew it was one I HAD to listen to. So, so, so good. I especially love the quote: “Saying yes to everything doesn’t make you Wonder Woman it makes you a worn out woman.” Yep. I think I need to write that on the wall or something! I was thinking about buying this book anyways; now I know I definitely need to!
