Number one rule: Have fun and be creative ♡
Do you come from a place of yes? Sometimes YES opens up new doors and sometimes…
Oh dear, where do I begin? This may become just me rambling on, I will go ahead and apologize in advance. I am working-out my thoughts here, because I love “yes” but eh…
So, yes, I would say I usually come from a place of “yes”. I am kind of a people-pleaser. I want to make people happy. I want to make people laugh. I want to make things easier for others. I have been known to let others dump their problems on me like I am a late night bartender pouring continuous shots of cheap tequila. I have also been a coat rack, the comfy couch, the warm hug, the go-to and the cheerleader.
Sometimes “yes” is wonderful. And sometimes “yes” is mistaken for weakness. People see your “yes” and they will try to raise it. What else can they get from your willingness to do for others?
Although yes/kindness can be confused for weakness, I will never stop. My heart will always be set in the mantra that; we are all fighting our own battle, we are a community. I want to lead with my heart.
“You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world… but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.”- John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
There is great power in YES: there is the ability to lend a hand, to take a leap of faith, and create new bonds. “Yes” has brought me many great opportunities that “NO” would have never bestowed. Yes, has got me this far. Look how far “yes” has taken Tina Fey. “YES” will take me where I want to be.
I am going to do a better job at saying YES to myself. If there is anyone who deserves my attention, it is me. I have decided that I will do more for me, I deserve it. Yes, I will be brave and I will take chances. I will figure it all out afterwards, until then…..
Next week we want to know: What have you done right lately? Or how does this quote inspire you?
