Do You Settle?

Each day I learn something new about this blogging process. I must tell you technology has a steep learning curve for me so I ask for your patience.

I had posted a question related to settling..I would like to hear from you. This past Tuesday I did a radio interview that focused on why women settle. I gave a few being that I do believe many women, men too, settle out of fear. I talk about this in my book; while we may not be satisfied with what we have, we are afraid to let it go for fear we won't find something better. I guess many of us do believe that a "bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush."

What have you settled for this past year? Do you have regrets that you settled? What lessons did you learn about the experience?

Waiting to read your comments. Nancy

The purpose of this blog is to open up dialogue about my book. I have talked to lots of women and some men re. favorite chapters..the chapter on Settling seems to be of particular interest. I believe most people, women and men, can feel a kindred to this chapter since most people have settled for less in some areas of our lives. Once we label a behavior or action, it takes on significance or meaning..we are then able to see the reality of what is going on in our life.
We're also able to change what we don't like..this gives us the opportunity to acknowledge and then change what we don't like.
