Say YES to New Things
Are you saying YES to the things that light you up? Or, are you playing it safe and sticking to your same ol’ routine day in and day out? 
Say YES to new things and shake your routine up a bit. By stepping out of your comfort zone and pushing yourself, you open up to endless possibilities. Don’t let fear stand in your way and don’t focus on the outcome. I can tell you right now that things don’t always turn out as planned and that’s ok. It’s better to try and not succeed the to never try at all. This is how we learn and grow. By doing. Not sitting on the sidelines watching everyone else get what we/they want. 

We create a fear based story in our mind that holds us back. We imagine things will be scarier than they truly are. We fret about the unknown to come and find out it really wasn’t a big deal at all. 

There are many ways you can begin to say YES to yourself. You can shake up your routine, try something new, or do something that even scares you. 

If you’re looking for something new, fresh and exciting here are a few things to think about…

Ask yourself this personal question. Who am I? What do I want? Are you living your life purpose or are you living someone else’s? Try something new and tap into your hidden talents. Don’t worry about what anyone else thinks. This is your journey. 

Yes, so this can be scary! It takes us out of our comfort zone, but meeting new people can completely change our lives. Seek out groups, activities and things that inspire you. There is nothing better then meeting new and like minded people. This can apply to personal as well as professional. 

When you open yourself to new and endless possibilities your confidence and self-esteem will soar. This energy is contagious and trust me… People will want to know what you’re doing. Not everything new you try will be your cup of tea. That’s totally cool, but you still created an experience which becomes a story and something your can share. 

This right here is the winner, winner, sober dinner. Just be happy. We get stuck in the rat race of life. A constant rut that wreaks havoc on our mind, body, and soul. Living in a state of joy is our natural birthright. By trying new things, meeting new people, and experimenting you're creating joy and unlimited happiness in your life.
How cool… Right?! 

If you don’t like your story then rewrite that shit! Don’t live in the past. It’s never to late to create change, to try new things, to reinvent ourselves and to create a life we are in love with. Forgive, move on, be true to you and SAY YES! 

Life is a crazy journey of highs and lows, and ups and downs. That’s what makes it so interesting. It helps us grow. It teaches us lessons. It hurts us. It heals us. It leaves us cracked wide open to endless possibilities of love, joy and happiness if we allow it. Living your life mindfully will allow you to create peace and joy. SAY YES to new things. Never judge yourself. Don’t listen to the haters. Feel your way through everything and never force.
To the next phase of your life.
