D.G. Kaye on growing self-esteem

Non-fiction author D.G. Kaye also known to us as Debby Gies, is the guest today of Madelyn Griffith-Haynie. The subject is self-esteem, which is a precious commodity. Not the showy, narcissistic ‘I am the greatest’ kind of esteem but one that allows you to live life to the full, happy with who you are and able to share that with others. It is a fragile state that if not carefully nurtured in a child can turn into a life long fear of being who you really are. Debby does not sugar coat the actions you need to take when in a relationship that is toxic…. head over and heed wise words. #recommended

In mid-August I was honored by a request to write an article for blogger Debby Gies, (author D.G. Kaye), so that she could spend her time getting her latest book ready for publication.

I chose to focus on the brain-based benefits to those of us who take frequent vacations between the pages of a book.

I had a wonderful time putting something together for the writing/reading followers of Debby’s blog.  However, I made her promise that she would write something suitable for the readers of ADDandSoMuchMORE.com — as soon as she had a bit of that illusive free-time that seems to be in short supply for…

  1. Loved this post from Debbie and then Madelyn’s input on top. Can I suggest something? Debby, Madelyn and Sally get together (now that would be a Holy Trinity) to write a handbook ‘how to get though life with minimum damage. 3 great minds bent on practical advice. Now that would be THE GOOD BOOK that really lived up to its name!

    • That sounds like a fun project, Paul (and a compelling idea for a title). I have often thought an anthology along similar lines would be interesting, similar to the short-story anthologies I have read.

      I contributed a few ideas to an ADD “Tips” anthology a few years back, but found the word limit unsatisfying (both as a writer and as a reader). To my mind, something a bit more fully developed would be more helpful and encouraging than a book full of quick-hit “advice” from supposed “experts.” It would speak to me, in any case.

    • First of all, thanks so much for always being so supportive Paul. But 2nd of all , what a fab idea! And as I see here, Sal has already mentioned to you that ideas have been brought up about such a project, which I will definitely be thinking about in the new year!!! 🙂 x

  2. I started my blogging day with some comments from a few “new” folks and wondered about it as I worked my way down the comments drop-down – then I got to your reblog notification. NOW I know that they no doubt jumped over from your reblog and recommendation. Your opinion carries weight, and I thank you VERY much – especially for introducing it so beautifully.

  3. Fabulous reblog, Sally. Debby exemplifies growing self-esteem in all of her books. It was wonderful to read this again. And it was perfect for Madelyn’s blog. She and Deb have so much in common. They both write with candor and from the heart. Hugs to all of you ♥♥♥
