Let's get her start head. Yes the first book we lived by season was dream more. Celebrate the dreamer in you by dolly parton. Jolanta tell us what stock i have been barry into honoring my young self at like turning to my young self in times of need for guidance. The advice dali's book that has very much stuck with me. i feel like it's always a good litmus test for like if you've gone past the like will this hurt other people if i do it like but if you're still on the fence be like little approve of this and if the answer is yes and it won't hurt other people let go for it. Oh i love that. That's what stuck joe winter. That's really sweet. I love that. What about new revelations. I feel like i've had none. It's not love nali more or less or anything like exciting and because of this book i feel like i'm just a true dolly fan and still love the book but like nothing new and what about torture what was pure torture for you Pure torture is whenever we talk about this book or in general people recommending Listening to the podcast all his america. I tried it's slow for me. Yeah dolly perkins america by jad rod from wnyc also the host and co creator of radio lab. Yes and we get that recommended to us almost every day. Yeah yeah we know about it jolanta. You just don't like that show. Melania i tried it. Thanks for the wreck. We've heard of it. Kristen what about you. What has stuck. Well obviously my love of dolly but also I keep thinking about haw. Dolly repeatedly says in her book. This is my story These are just my wishes for you. I wish for you dream. I wish for you to do more. But i'm not actually giving you instructions on what to do because you know that's up to you that's your life. I'm only telling you what worked for my life. And i love that dolly does that and god. I wish that more self help authors would do that she says i'm not qualified to give you instructions. I'm only qualified to share. What's true to me. Oh my gosh jilin to. You and i tried to do that in our book as well. We tried to make that clear like we're not telling you what to do but most authors don't do that.
