Today Starts My Year of Yes

Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person by Shonda Rhimes.

 

Year of Forty Five

I am leaving behind a year of adjusting to a teenager living in our home, being dumped once again by my mother, and having a friend tell me that I’m not a good friend because I didn’t “like” enough of her status updates.  Basically, my forty-fifth year was a year of #firstworldproblems.

For my forty-sixth year, instead of riding, I’ll be driving.  I want this next year to be full of excitement, achievement, ambition, and fun.  So I decided to have a Year of Yes.

Today is day one.

What Saying Yes Means for Me

I hate conflict, I’m afraid of change, and too often anxiety rules my day.  Saying “yes” to all experiences that come my way will help me better deal with conflict, appreciate change, and calm my anxiety.

Or maybe it’ll make things more stressful.  Regardless, it’ll be an experience to write about and I’m excited.

Stay tuned.
