I’ve learned this year the importance of saying YES. I’m not talking the no boundaries, people pleasing, yes, yes, yes of my past. I am talking about the rich experiences, the things that might make you uncomfortable, the pushing your boundaries, the making the extra effort YES.

Each YES has opened a door for me. Some unexpected; some looked “bad” at first and yet took me somewhere I would not otherwise have gone.
Saying YES requires trust. And for me regaining trust in the world and in myself was a challenge. I had been through a pretty bad patch. My world had gotten small. And I realized that I wanted an expansive world.
So I came out punching (a bit). I accepted the invitations. I spent the money and booked the flights and found I earned the money back right away. I took the courses. I did the work.
I accepted the help. And have people in my life now I could not imagine not having in my life.
I found friendship in the most unlikely places.
Say YES to this rich life we have been given. I promise you it will be alright.
