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!
