yes: i am a dreamer. for a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight.
There is something so freeing about the word - yes. It is such a simple word, yet I had almost forgotten that it existed! It is so easy to get caught up in responsibilities and negativity. This is exactly why I have been working to bring positivity back into my life.
A little while ago, I watched a video by Laurel House that really inspired me. (If you missed my interview with Laurel, be sure to check it out here!) The video is based on a very simple premise - introducing yes into your life. How can you do this? Start by writing yes on a post it note and put it somewhere in your bedroom. Then, write positive goals on other post it notes and put them in different places that you'll be sure to see them.
It was like a light bulb clicked on in my head. If I wanted to bring positivity into my life, I needed to remind myself of what was truly important: not the stress of work...not the state of my career....not my lack of free time. What is truly important, are the people in my life that make me feel happy and fulfilled and how I feel about myself. From this point on, I am saying Yes! to the things that really matter.
Need some post it ideas? Here are a few of the ones that I've got stashed around my room at the moment: Yes! to success. Yes! to productivity. Yes! to laughter. And most importantly, Yes! to ME.
This is the simple way that I am trying to bring positivity back into my life. If you want to watch Laurel House's yes! inspired YouTube video, check it out below.
