There has been a lot of buzz as of late about choosing a word of the year. Usually I have many but this year I chose Yes! Actually, I have been dabbling in Yes! for several years, since I started breaking apart my life, but this year I’m all in!
At first it may feel a bit selfish to say Yes! A bit unnatural. But once you get the hang of it you will wonder why you waited so long. Yes! is exciting and terrifying all in one. Yes! opens doors, renews relationships and frees you to be you. Choosing Yes! gives your children permission to say Yes! To be authentic. To live their truth.
This year I say…
Yes! to my health.
Yes! to my family.
Yes! to my dreams.
Yes! to abundance.
Yes! to No!
If you haven’t yet, watch Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday interview with Shonda Rhimes, creator and producer of the award winning series Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal to name a few. She recently wrote a book called Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person(now on my must read list). She made the bold move two years ago of saying Yes! to her life and it changed her in ways she could not have imagined. Her year of Yes! lead her to some incredible experiences she would not have otherwise had, losing weight, letting go of what no longer served her and most importantly, showing up for her children as the empowered, present mama she is.
Thank you Shonda! For being brave, sharing your story with the world and being you!
Fun. Flow. Freedom.
