Manifest Your Destiny (Rosetta’s book pick)

    Great conversation. I just have issue with the idea that we can control everything. I think it is misleading and can spiral into disappointment. Women are also forces of nature. If we want to be mothers, we have to factor in a healthy partner, biology and other unexpected events.

  • Sheryl

    I really enjoyed this conversation but it seems like you assume that women have control over every aspect of their lives. it feels like both of you have not encountered life situations that are not within your control. Even if you put your mind to something, it doesn’t mean that it was meant to be. Wanting something and being in the flow of what life appears have different energies and embody different outcomes. I would like you to interview women over 50 just to offer some comparison and context about trying to control every aspect of our lives.
