If there’s one thing I love reading, it’s memoirs.
From f-ed up childhoods, to comedic tales, I just can’t get enough. Wild, Running with Scissors, A Heart Breaking Work of Staggering Genius are just a few of my ultimate faves.
Currently, I’m been reading Amy Poehler’s book Yes Please, and this quote hit me dead in the middle of my Sunday afternoon.
Are you ready? Get this:
“It takes years as a woman to unlearn
what you have been taught to be sorry for.”
This quote inspired me so much on so many levels; not just as someone who has worked her share of male-dominated corporate jobs, or as a solopreneur, but as a 30-something female in America today.
In fact, I simply HAD to create a quote poster for my office celebrating Amy’s nugget of wisdom (although the book is FULL of gems like these.)
My hope is that this poster serves as a reminder to you, too, to stop being sorry for allllllllllll the things.
(AND that Amy Poehler herself would approve and some day want to meet me to give me a hug. Because frankly, who wouldn’t want a hug from her?)
