The mega-talented creator of Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal and executive producer of How to Get Away With Murder chronicles how saying YES for one year changed her life―and how it can change yours, too. With three hit shows on television and three children at home, the uber-talented Shonda Rhimes had lots of good reasons to say NO when an unexpected invitation arrived. Hollywood party? No. Speaking engagement? No. Media appearances? No. And there was the side-benefit of saying No for an introvert like Shonda: nothing new to fear. Then Shonda’s sister laid down a challenge: just for one year, try to say YES to the unexpected invitations that come your way. Shonda reluctantly agreed―and the result was nothing short of transformative. In Year of Yes, Shonda Rhimes chronicles the powerful impact saying yes had on every aspect of her life―and how we can all change our lives with one little word. Yes.

What happens when you say YES to everything your Soul tells you to do for one year? The Year of YES is one woman's spiritual journey to free herself from the conventions that bound her Soul. This memoir is a raw, unflinching confrontation with the pain and regrets of a jagged past, an exploration of sacred (and not-so-sacred) sex, a slaying of demons, a baptism, and a transmutation of self. Tracee Sioux starts her Year of YES on the heels of a divorce. Having tanked her career for motherhood, she was making $600 a month and feeding her kids from the food bank. Yet, her Soul made a promise: Follow me, I know where I'm going, I know the fastest, easiest way to get there and I will never, ever steer you wrong. She said YES Sioux's Soul took her to Crazytown, realm hopping in other-worldly dimensions, to healers all over the globe (including a currandera in the Mexican desert who put a curse on her), to Meetup groups where they practice Orgasmic Meditation, to dating websites and an exploration of a deeper sexuality. She confronted her family pattern of addiction, and cast her own demons on the fire. Her Soul's intention: to heal her of 40 years of psychic garbage. Though Sioux's past is full of trauma-sexual trauma when she was a teenager, a series of relationships with addicts, being an eye-witness to 9/11 and giving birth three weeks later in Manhattan while suffering from PTSD, drug rehab for Xanax addiction, and severe anxiety and depression-her Soul leads her to the exact perfect circumstances, healers, rituals and magic spells to heal her and rebuild her life.
