Saying “Yes” to Life

I’ve made a decision to start saying “yes.”

It’s not that I’ve been a “no” person for most of my life, but I haven’t gone after opportunities, I haven’t taken risks.  So I’ve decided to start saying yes to any opportunity that presents itself.  Writing that down I’m reminded heavily of the movie Yes Man with Jim Carrey, but I promise I didn’t get the idea from that.  I actually decided to do this last week when I went to the movies with my friend, Kate.  We were talking about going to Octoberfest and I said, “I don’t like beer, but yes, I’ll go.  It sounds like fun.”  And I decided then and there that I needed to start saying yes to everything- because everything can be fun, if you have the right attitude about it.

I got a message the other day from someone I never expected to hear from again, asking if I wanted to meet up again.  And yes, I did.  So I said yes.  It might be stupid.  But it could also be great.  If I stay positive, life will be positive.  Life will be worth living if I decide to make it worth living.  So YES!
