In the last week of December I reread Shonda Rhimes “Year of Yes” just as I did in December 2015. The first reading was a turning point for me, a critical pivot from the life I knew to the life I knew I wanted. Now, here I am again, 4 years older, 4 years after saying Yes to myself and so very much more, and still needing those reminders to say Yes, to live and breathe for myself. Four years into learning who I am and what I want and why and how and WHEN can I make it ALL happen. (Now, darling girl, you are making it happen right now.)

After 4 years of saying yes to myself I would still go back and say Yes much, much more. So going forward, I won’t keep breaking my own heart. I will say Yes all the more.
