Jennifer Pastiloff is someone I follow on social media. This week she has been posting a list of things she is saying yes to. It made me think about how I hold myself back from so many things I enjoy for absolutely no reason at all. Maybe it’s because what I think I should be doing and what I’d like to be doing are often two very different things. That’s just what I do these days, what’s expected of me. That means I push aside the things that would make me happy for the very things that make me feel crappy. I’m going to join her in making a daily list for myself. We do have a choice but will what we choose come from a place of guilt or desire?
Today, I am saying yes to not vacuuming and sticking my fork into a piece of cake. I am saying yes to squeezing that hour workout in and yes to time to just sit on the couch to blog. I am saying yes to feeling lazy and to picking up take out for dinner. I am saying yes to taking that walk around the block with my husband tonight and yes to focusing on the positives.
Will you take the challenge? I hope you encourage others to do it too.
