It all started with a book … Just before my 25th birthday I read the book Year of Yes by Shonda Rhimes and it dawned on how safe I had been living my life. Shonda in her book explains how she decided to dedicate a whole year to saying yes to things that scared her and things that she would normally turn down.
I decided to literally take a leaf from her book and have my own Year of Yes. Lucky for me this was in December meaning I had a clean slate to work with as we were going into the New Year. Since then I have decided to turn my Year of Yes into a Life of Yes exploring what life has to offer and pursuing a life that makes me happy.
All that I can say is that I am enjoying the process of going after my dream life and not being held back by fear.
Live Learn Light has turned out to be a life of Yes. These are the three basic principles that I plan to abide by daily. At the end of every before I retire to bed I purpose to ask myself whether I lived, learned and was a light. For me Living means doing the things that bring me joy. Learning means that I will always be a student for life and that means drawing lessons from books, conversations and my surroundings. Lastly being a light means striving to always be the best version of myself and in turn bringing out the best in other people.♥
