Y is for Yes.
A few years ago I decided I would say ‘Yes’ to everything — jobs I was offered (I freelance); invitations to parties; dates, the lot.
I did not regret it and I must say it opened a lot of small, but interesting doors, and led to me having a whole bunch of incredible experiences.
After that, I reverted to my usual habit of being more cautious and (you could) say wishy washy about my approach to life. The last six years have not been great and I faced a whole lot of financial struggles and emotional upheavals. I just wasn’t inclined to say ‘Yes’ to anything. Often, I wasn’t able to say ‘Yes’.
Things started getting better again at the end of 2018 and so, feeling much more positive than I have in a long while, I decided that I would start saying ‘Yes’ again to as much as possible. In case you’re wondering, saying ‘Yes’ does not mean you’re not allowed to bail if you realise whatever you’ve agreed to do is not for you. However, so far so good. We’re coming to May, I’ve enjoyed the first four months of 2019 and am looking forward to the rest of the year. Yes!
