Y is for YES!
I've been making a hugely conscious effort this past year to say yes more. It's not that I said no to everything, but having never been the most confident person, no was always a safe bet with me. No to trying something new on a menu, no to situations that put me out of my comfort zone, no to things I actually really really wanted to do but just didn't feel like I could for whatever reason my brain could come up with.
I was so frustrated with myself, why couldn't I just say yes and put myself out there? Sometimes, when you've acted a certain way for long it becomes the norm, a safety net, and it's difficult to break down those walls and change.
But change I did. I saw my life going in a direction I wasn't all too thrilled about and I knew only I could do something about it. And it all started with a yes. I started saying yes to things I knew I would have once said no to, I started venturing out to restaurants I'd never try before, picking things off the menu I had no idea about. Saying yes more started to open up so many more doors I was struggling to get myself through all of them.
Going to my first blogger event was a big yes moment for me. In the past a room filled with unknown people and some amazing bloggers I'd admired through the blog-sphere would have sent me straight into the no zone. But I didn't want to be that person anymore, so I said yes. And you know what? I had the most amazing time!
