A to Z Challenge: Y

A to Z Challenge


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!

Could you do with saying  yes a little more in your life? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,


  1. I definitely could do with saying yes a little more in my life!! It's not that no is my go to response but things that I'm unsure about sometimes just go unanswered. I much like you have started working on this! I like we call could do with getting out of our comfort zones a little more!

    1. I'm so glad I started moving forward in my life this way, by being more open and up for things I'd have usually have made an excuse for, it's changed me for the better that's for sure!
