The Classic Pamela Positive: “Make A Date With Your Favorite Book Tonight.” – Love, Dove

Share This Post


In Silicon Valley, we are go-go-go getters. We “go -get” after our businesses, our startup company, our new deal, our new everything. We are “on it!”


And yet… while that productivity is good, leadership and kind care taking of oneself takes time.

I’ll share. A couple years ago, I had a Duke Event (which I love) and a Stanford International Happy Hour, (which I also love). And yet, I needed to be quiet…


But my mind said…  


You should go!! You could meet more people that will help UniversalGiving! You should take this opportunity. If you don’t you will feel badly.





And part of me, did.


I wrestled.


I finally made the decision:


To go home. 


And I read. And it was so peaceful, and life giving and regenerating, and kind. And I was filled. And I was ready the next day…






If you’ve been going hard, why not let yourself go home tonight. You don’t need to network, make the next deal, meet a new person. If you are supposed to meet them, they will come back into your life in another way, if that is the right opportunity for the both of you.


Enjoy a Peaceful Night. I’m going to church… and then, I’m going to read. 🙂





Dove Chocolate, sold as Galaxy in other countries, is a Mars Company owned and operated brand of chocolate that is virtually in all supermarkets and convenience stores across the US. They are well known for their silky and smooth texture and are well liked. However, what makes each chocolate special is the addition of a quote inside each of their wrappers, which has attracted both praise and critique from many consumers.
Dove Chocolate messages like “Believe in yourself,” and “Make the most of everyday,” and others dealing with hope, mindfulness, and inspiration, bring positivity to the life of the reader. However, some people feel that sayings like “Too much of a good thing is still wonderful,” and “Do what feels right,” are misleading and may be giving people bad advice, and have been poking fun at the wrapper messages. You can take a look at photos of their wrappers by clicking here and you can read a compilation of their messages here.
