A Definition of Yes

My friend Christina, who lives her life with the attitude that the glass is not only half full- it is full to the top, started saying yes, only when her gut response was 'Hell Yes'. Which, as far as I am concerned is the proper response to create a life worth living.

Christina's 'Hell Yes' approach to life, and a little bit of serendipity, means she is currently traveling throughout Australia meeting new people, learning new life skills, and having the time of her life. Her post "Never Settle for a life of Mediocracy" is definitely worth a read, especially if you are looking to shake things up a bit in your own life.

I also love that Christina met Diana at a Crave event, which I blogged about, and they both have the spirit to fully embrace life and their epic adventure.

I will admit that for a moment I thought about not posting this because 'Hell' is not a pretty word, but, you know, life is not pretty and sometimes my language is not pretty either. I can say that checking in with myself and gauging my response means that I am saying yes only to events, meetings, or dates with friends and acquaintances, that propel me forward spiritually, emotionally and physically.

I also need to give credit where credit is due. First to the lovely Christina who brought puppies and unicorns into my life. When she left for Australia she took a bit of sunshine with her. Second my advice was based on something I had read. I am guessing that the incomparable Saya Hillman of Mac 'n Cheese Productions had posted it on her Facebook page. Even if she didn't, her belief in helping others live a Life of Yes! deserves a shout out.Third- Oh and Diana rocks!
