Say Yes to Life

Say Yes To Life
 
Imagine a world where there is no fear.  No shame in anything you did.  No limitations on your performance and no judgment from yourself or others for what you did or are doing.  Imagine this world now with a real you in it, smiling, experiencing life, dancing to your own beat without a care in the world.  Laughing, just because.  Saying whatever comes to mind and taking chances and risk, because, quite frankly... you can.
 
Let's call this the "Yes" world, and its a great place to be because there is no limitations on you.  This is where your soul shines, where dreams do come true.  Call me an optimist, which of course I am... but wouldn't it be great if we all strive to do this?  So why is it so hard?
 
The benefits I've noticed about growing older is you tend to not care as much about what others think.  This is such a big road block for saying "Yes".  We tend to stop ourselves before we even begin.  Its often our fear of judgment from others that keeps us back.  Unfortunately this starts young and often during the years where we learn arithmetic and spelling along with what is cool and what isn't.
 
 I see my boys, who are six and eight, now worrying about the peer pressure to fit in.  In fact my six year old no longer lets me kiss or hug him in public because he doesn't want me to embarrass him.  I swore this started later!  The worst years for peer pressure, though are the teen years, and I believe even the twenties.  Some people, in fact I think a large part of our society, is still effected by this peer pressure to not say or do the wrong thing... all at the expense of their own happiness.
 
I think one of the most freeing exercises for a day is to say from the moment you wake up until you lay your head on the pillow at bed time, to say "Yes" to everything.  Isn't there a movie like that?  We make fun of it, but how often do you say "No" when deep down you wanted to say "Yes" but were afraid.
 
Now, I don't want this to be confused with doing things you don't want to do, strictly out of obligation.  Saying "No" is a whole other blog.  What I'm advocating for here is to take more risk.  Be willing to try something new.  Follow your gut and laugh along the way.  How often have you been asked to do something out of your comfort zone, said "No" then you sat silently wishing you said "Yes". 
 
So, say "Yes" to everything.  Say yes to dancing.  Say yes to driving a different direction because it is more scenic.  Say yes to playing video games with your kid.  Say yes to going out with your friends, or having a spontaneous dinner with your partner.  Say yes to anything that feels good.  Saying yes to life is one of the funnest things you can do!  Live, laugh, and most importantly, love yourself enough to live your life fully.  You are the only one holding you back!

Nice find! I was wondering if there was a way to do this because I personally get frustrated as it makes your site look cheap if you don't have ads targeted to the content. I think while you might end up getting a little bit less CPC, your CTR will more than make up for it.
