The Year of Yes!

YEear of yeS

As I reflected on the past year, I decided that 2015 was a year of a lot of no’s in my life.  There were so many things that happened, the good, the and the ugly, that by the time December rolled around I was just waiting for my fresh start.  Right after Thanksgiving, I went to see Frankie Beverly and Maze and Chaka Khan concert.  During the show, while Frankie was singing Happy Feelings, I made up my mind that that was what I wanted 2016 to be.

Not only would “Happy Feelings” be my theme song for 2016, but for me 2016 would be the Year of Yes!  For most of my life, I made cautious decisions, I always needed to consider the what if’s and most of the time this meant that I missed out on opportunities and other advantages.   allowed fear and doubt to govern my decisions.  Those days are over.

Before the year ended I made two decisions that took me completely out of my comfort zone.  Those decisions were not life of death decisions but they allowed me experiences I may not have had before I embraced The Year of Yes.

So I sent my closest friends a text decided that we were going to read the book individually and collectively spend the year living out our Year of Yes.  I am looking forward to what that means for me.  I am looking forward to the opportunities and challenges that will come my way.  I anticipate what will happen in my life.  I have already seen great advantages from stepping out of my comfort zone and I plan to do more this year.  So here’s to “Happy Feelings” while living our Year of Yes!

Stay Fabulous and Stay Blessed!
