Saying "No"

Nancy Wilson on saying "no" and internalizing standards:

So, what kind of standards do women need to live by? You need standards about what you think.What you say.What you listen to.What you will read and watch.What you will laugh at. How you dress. What makeup and jewelry you wear. How you drive. How you walk down the street. What you will post on myspace. Who you will receive phone calls, email, or instant messages from.The kind of people you will befriend. The kind of parties you will attend. The kind of gifts you will receive.The kind of men you will spend time with and where you will spend that time.

I strongly encourage all of my female readers (especially if you're single!) to take the time to read this post in it's entirety.

This looks very interesting - will have to read it after the storm passes - physical that is - wind blowing - hear thunder in the background - not a good time to have the computer on :)

Did you get a lot of rain? I was running in the park mid-morning on Saturday and saw dark clouds and a wall of rain heading west. It began to thunder, but then we never did get any of it.

Also, I fixed the broken link at the bottom of the post. Now everyone can click directly to the article. :-)
