Hey friends! Whoa, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to check in on my blog and I’ve missed y’all.
I’m here to share something personal with you regarding a shift a noticed in my life. I used to say NO to everything. Really…I did. My gut reaction was almost always, “No, I cannot do that” or “nah, I don’t want to do that.” When I met Austin and actually started to listen to him (hahaha), I started saying YES more and more and slowly but surely, I’ve found myself saying yes to tons of things I would of said NO to years ago.
I said YES to pursuing fitness full-time a few months ago.
I said YES to moving to Tennessee with Austin for medical school.
I said YES to that brownie. 🙂
I said YES to taking a rest day.
I’ve been saying YES and I’m not looking back. I’ve noticed that since I’ve started to say yes, I’ve had a ton more life experiences that I reflect on in a positive way. I used to be very regimented and would force myself to work out every day (even when my body craved a rest) and only eat dessert once a week and go to bed by 8:30pm every night…I was structured to a T. Well, then Austin comes into the picture and disrupts my structure in the best way possible. Yes, I’m still structured and organized but I also know how to have more fun and experience life in a FULL way, instead of a calculated way.
I’m so grateful to Austin for countless reasons but I’m most grateful that I learned to relax and experience life the way it’s supposed to be…life isn’t a structured to-do list…life can be messy and there is such beauty in that.
To wrap up this little story, try to say YES to more and see what happens. I’m betting you won’t regret it!
