Year of Yes

Year of Yes!

Year of Yes


I’m in a rut.  I need a change.  I was reading an article about Shonda Rhimes and her book  Year of Yes. Shonda Rhimes is the creator of the shows Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal and my favorite, How to Get Away With Murder. Shonda is an introvert like me and we like to stay in our comfort zone.

I am always shying away from things that I know I should do, but I am afraid to do.  I have stepped out of my comfort zone a bit in 2015.  I acquired my certificate in Social Media Management, volunteered at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) and contributed a couple of articles to Midlife Boulevard.  I have also started advertising my social media services on Fiverr and PeoplePerHour.com.

I need to step out more, take more chances and be more confident.  It’s easier said than done.  My son said to me this morning “I know it’s difficult for you to come out of your comfort zone.”  I have never said this to my son before.  The fact that he knows this makes me want to do it even more! This is one of the reasons I’m writing this post, to hold myself accountable. Doing this project the Year Of Yes makes me very nervous and excited. I enjoy a challenge.  This will be one of the biggest challenges for me ever!

I know the new year starts in a couple of weeks, but I want to start now. If I put it off, I’m afraid I won’t do it. No more procrastinating for me!

Will you join me, on my quest to say yes?! Is there anything you didn’t say yes to?! Do you regret it?! Tell me about in the comments section! Let me know if you decide to challenge yourself and say yes!
