Saying Yes More Often

Rocky Mountains in Banff - 2014
I stumble upon a photograph and it takes me back a year. I close my eyes. Heavy frost and deep snow is what I feel on my skin and around me. Should I book it? I remember asking a friend. I wasn't so sure what our friends would think or say, and if they wanted to join at all. Just do it, said the dream in my head.
I smile. The photograph reminds me of a time when I grabbed life with two hands and shook it real hard until something magical popped out. Sort of like you would turn an old purse upside down, in the hope that coins would fall out.
Of course there were insecurities during that time, but they paled in comparison to the happiness that I experienced by just doing things. No overthinking, no worrying, just throwing myself into the deep end and seeing what happens.
It is the best way I have ever lived my life. I can't wait to try and do it again.
P.S. Apparently my Bloglovin' account wasn't working properly, so if you're following me through there, you may have a couple of posts to catch up on!
