You know that movie, Yes Man, with Jim Carey? That’s semi-the story of my life right now. I am normally more of an introvert and often a homebody — comfortable in a mellow, low-key situation, and secretly a fan of monotony. However, lately I have been saying ‘yes‘ to all opportunities, invitations, and challenges that I have been presented with. Although it’s been a bit overwhelming, it has also been extremely rewarding.
Saying ‘yes’ has presented me with job opportunities, career opportunities, new friends, and lots of being busy. This week I started a new job, and have already been presented with the an additional job possibility: the chance to test out my social media consulting skills (but that is still very TBD). It’s crazy how one open door opens up to another and so on and so forth.
Without rambling on any longer, my message for this week is don’t be afraid to say YES. Yes, it can be scary and intimidating to explore new things and confront potential challenges, but that’s what makes us grow and become our best selves. So although I am pretty much totally exhausted from a very busy week, I am proud to be embracing the “YES” in my life, and hope that you find opportunities to do the same.
Cheers & have a great weekend!
