    Here's a little something to start your week. I love the down-to-earth wisdom here.

    Excerpt from The Smartest Advice I Ever Got by Donna Brazile

    1. Be the Buffalo: Wilma Mankiller, the first female principal chief of the Cherokee nation, once told me how the cow runs away from the storm while the buffalo charges directly toward it – and gets through it quicker. Whenever I’m confronted with a tough challenge, I do not prolong the torment. I become the buffalo.

    2. Go Help Someone: My mother wasn’t a very patient woman, but she was wise. If I complained about being lonely or bored, she’d tell me to go help someone, anyone. To this day, when I start feeling sorry for myself, I look for a good deed to do and it always works. But I also always keep one thing in mind . . .

    3. Ask the Turtle: I’m proud to call Gloria Steinem a friend, and this advice came from her. While on a field trip in college with her geology class, she discovered a giant snapping turtle that had climbed out of the river, up a dirt path and right to the edge of the road. Worried it would soon be run over, she wrestled the enormous reptile off the embankment and back down to the water. At that moment, her professor walked up and asked what in the world she was doing. With some pride, she told him. He said that the turtle had probably spent the last month crawling up that long dirt path to safely lay its eggs in the mud on the side of the road and that she had just destroyed all that effort with her “rescue.” Gloria tells this story to illustrate the most important lesson she ever learned:

    Always ask the turtle. Not everyone wants to be helped.

    Have a great week, everyone!

    Hugs,

    Penny
  • Hey Chuck! Thanks! "No Doubt Darla"........I like that. Maybe I should use it as an alternate tagline. Luv to you all!!
  • Congrats Darla. As a singer myself, I can totally relate where you are coming from. Only thing is, I usally get all the nervous "symptoms" after performing LOL.

    Rob, Congrats on a successful audition! Keep us posted on the other projects as well!

    Chuck, I hope that you figure out what it is that's gnawing at you. Here's hoping its something good just waiting in wings :-)

  • Hi Darla,
    By now, you've emerged on the other side of fear, and I would venture to guess it all went well!
    Best,
    Linda
  • Applause, applause, Darla!
