Day 99: I say Yes.
Did you ever wonder if you actually got what you wanted if you’d be brave enough to accept what the universe sends you?
Throughout this entire blog series, I’ve never been more scared than I’ve been the last month or so. Almost every day it seems that I’m constantly being tested to see if I’m ready to step into being the person I’ve always wanted to be. Because of timing, there hasn’t been much of an opportunity to think too much.
I’ve just needed to close my eyes, take a deep breath, and go. At every turn, I’ve been encouraged to just say yes.
My good friend, Joe, told me he saw things going gangbusters for me here shortly. I didn’t really believe him, but I tried to. I approached it like an experiment: pretend you’re hopeful, and enjoy the quiet time. I kept myself open to it. I said yes to the possibility.
Joe? You were SO RIGHT.
I’m doing work that I love; work that makes my heart and soul sing. I’m challenging myself in new and different ways. I have wonderful people in my life who are supporting me through all these big changes and encouraging me at every step of the way.
And when you meet someone really special – someone who makes you laugh, who is as big of a geek as you are, and who tells you that your first date was the best date of his life, and you feel the same – who asks you to be exclusive, you close your eyes, take a deep breath…
…and you just say yes.
