"Wow, I love it when people let go of the "type" they think they are and trade it in for something they like better! This is great stuff. "Fun-loving" is good. No wonder your husband's getting a kick out of it. Maybe he wants…"

"Wow, Nanci, I got chills re-reading those lyrics. I'm gonna go play that song in a minute. It reminds us of what we already know: that this is it. That we're ready to make our move. That it's our time. Our moment to take. "Hey…"

My Song: Don't Rain on My Parade

Whenever the little voices in my head tell me I can't do something, I sing this song.Don't tell me not to live, just sit and putter.Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter.Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade.Don't tell me not to fly, I've simply got to.If someone takes a spill, it's me and not you.Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade.I'll march my band out, I'll beat my drum.And if I'm fanned out, your turn at bat, sir.At least I didn't fake it.Hat, sir, I guess I…See More

Thrown Away: Mental Clutter #2

I let go of the type of person I think I am or am not. I thought that the 'brainy' type was taken by brother #1 and the 'funny' type was taken by brother #2. But I can by brainy or funny if I want to be too. I used to be the sensitive type. But that got blown away after living in Nigeria. You simply can't be shy and live there. Now I can tell you, "You are standing on my toe, and please get off now."



I am now recasting myself as the 'fun-loving' type. My husband was delighted to hear… Continue

Thrown Away: Mental Clutter #1

I stopped comparing myself with my brother. I love my brother. He is a genius. He speaks English, French, Spanish, Cantonese and Mandarin. The Cantonese was self-taught. He also plays the piano, violin, viola and cello, and he composes music too. When we were growing up he had the reputation as 'the brainy one' and my other brother was 'the funny one'. What was I? I felt that there was no way I would ever be able to measure up to either one of them, so I decided to be 'the artsy… Continue

My Song: Don't Rain on My Parade

Whenever the little voices in my head tell me I can't do something, I sing this song.



Don't tell me not to live, just sit and putter.

Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter.

Don't bring around a cloud to rain on my parade.



Don't tell me not to fly, I've simply got to.

If someone takes a spill, it's me and not you.

Who told you you're allowed to rain on my parade.



I'll march my band out, I'll beat my drum.

And if I'm fanned out, your… Continue
