Okay. So I made a bold decision.
I'm going to say yes this year. Starting today.
Yes to spending more time with friends. Yes to going out even though I'm tired. Yes to traveling. Yes to new places. Yes to things I've never tried. Yes to dates and brunches and nights with no sleep and work the next morning. Yes to meeting new people and yes to trying things that scare me. Yes to asking for what I want and working hard and earning what I'm dreaming about.
Yes to ... the Bachelor? Yeah, that happened. I agreed to let one of my good friends sign me up for an audition. Stay tuned to see how that humiliation turns out.
On day one, I said yes to catching up with a friend at lunch. Yes to meeting up with new people later this week. Yes to dinner with my uncle, even though it meant leaving work early. Yes to drinks with friends, which resulted in laughing so hard my abs hurt. Yes to catching up with one of my Birthright roomies. Yes to inviting another Birthrighter to visit. And of course, yes to the ridiculous Bachelor nonsense. But at least J's happy.
And like the marketing nerd I am, I've got a communication plan for you. I'm going to keep you updated at the end of the first week, first month, and then every month after.
Hold me to it, and I'll relay all my adventures. Cheers to the Year of Yes!
