Something I always tell my students about is saying No to anything that brings you down. If it doesn't resonate with you, say no. If it doesn't make your heart sing, say no. If it's not from a place of Love, say no. But what could happen if you said yes?
The Universe is always throwing gifts and blessings at our feet, fun experiences, precious memories waiting to be experienced and held, new friends to be met, new passions to be found if only we'd say Yes once in a while!
Have you found yourself wanting to try that new dance class but worried you'll be the only beginner? Have you wanted to pursue your love of photography but are concerned about justifying splashing out on a camera? Are you a closet singer, basket weaver, tarot reader, cake decorator, synchronised swimmer, or psychic artist? Come out and say Yes to your dreams! Give things a try, have a go! What's the worst that can happen? (And is the worst really as bad as you think it'd be?! I'll be no!)
Here are some things to try if you're lacking in confidence:
1) Write down some things you enjoy doing already.
2) Write down some things you're good at already and then compare the lists.
3) Write down 3 things you'd love to try or do this month.
4) Rope a friend into trying at least one of the things with you.
5) Make a date n your diary to do it/book onto a class/tell someone about it so you're accountable.
6) Say Yes and go for it!
And just so you're not doing it on your own, I'm practising what preach and teaching myself to rollerskate! I bought myself a second-hand pair at the end of last month and have been on them every day round the house! (When my knee pads come I'll have a go outside!)
Please say Yes! Amazing things happen when you do!
Let me know how you get on ;-)
Love Leonie xx
