11. Say Yes

It looked like another stormy/sunny, undecided weather day. I said yes to an invitation to meet a friend at the gym since it’s been hard to motivate while I navigate some debilitating fatigue.

Another dear friend and I had said yes (a month ago!) to getting together this weekend, so I was very excited to join a last minute trip to the beach with her and her boyfriend.

Brene Brown makes it sound so simple-what a beautiful quote! Saying yes to this today.

Say yes to looking within even when it’s easier to point fingers and place the blame everywhere but within you. Working on this!

Said yes to a generous invitation for lunch. Learning to receive whether a compliment, gift, or opportunity is truly a practice. (We did not eat lobster, but I said yes to this photo opportunity, with consent).

I said yes to adopting the “savoring” skill as soon as I learned about it and realized I could enjoy the things I love even more than I already do.

Yes to third-wheeling if it means spending quality time with friends in their favorite place, Plum Island. Pictured is Sandy Point since the bugs were too much at the Island. IMG-3400IMG-3391

Friend said yes to fishing even though it was buggy! IMG-3388

Yes to accepting reality that I grew up in the woods and trees fall on the house somewhat regularly.

I’m still ambivalent about this blog, but I said yes to it this morning. It feels grounding to do something everyday. I’d really like to say yes to a morning meditation practice, too.

What will you say YES to today?

Thanks for yes-ing reading my blog this morning, too. May your day be filled with meaningful yes’s (and no’s!)
