I’ve never been good at chess.

A game where you have to think 10-steps ahead about what the OTHER guy is gonna do.

To me, I’d rather we all just work for the common good.

But we don’t. Which means, you can’t just set your sight and go for it. Not on the important things. Nope. If you want to make a difference, you better think like the other guy.

So it was that I walked into my book interviews a nervous wreck. Ready for the scandal-questions I knew would come, but forcing myself to stay grounded so I could say what I wanted to say-my honest response-not what the other guy wanted me to say.

I did okay on some, and horrid on others. I can do better. I WILL do better. Still, for the first time out of the box in a long, long time, I think I did alright.

Here’s to you if you don’t let anything stand in the way of Your power. Your voice. Of you being heard. And clinking-cheers if you’re stepping out strong, with honesty, AND, with kindness.

Big shout out goes to Crystle Lampitt of Kansas City Live, for being a voice for women.
