Confessions of a Yes Woman, Day One

I spent a great deal of time with Bart and the kids this weekend. You may think this sounds odd to say, but often I work weekends. But I decided this past weekend that it was Valentine's Day and I was going to take a break.

One of the things we did was to see a couple movies. Four of us went to "Yes Man" at the cheap theatre last night and it had an interesting message. What if we started saying yes to opportunities that came our way instead of always saying we were too busy for things. What if we did something different and unique...

So I decided for one day to attempt to say yes to the opportunities that came my way. After I returned from a workout and shower at the Y (click here to discover if I lost or gained weight) I decided to at least read my emails. While I didn't say yes to becoming a nurse or taking out a loan to go back to school, i did begin to ponder finishing my doctorate. And I did discover this website which gave me some ideas about my own website and speaking and writing career.

I unsubscribed from some lists so I won't get any more emails that I have to take time to delete. And i reset my goals on LifeTick.

And now i better get back to the mundane tasks of my day.

Say Yes to something today and let me know how it goes. It's kind of fun...

Ms. Claudia - As always I am inspired by your blog! I am basking in the change at my home from saying yes. I (well my hubby too) said yes last week to taking on 2 more foster children. We now have Mr. Man (age 10 and with us for almost one year), Cap'n J (16 going on 17 with us for 5 days) and Elf Lord (brother of Cap'n J and age 15). Yes can be such a wonderful word! - Ferjenib
