I Hope This Is The Year You Say Yes To Things

Becca Tapert

Say yes to that trip you’ve been holding off because all you have is right now and it’s time you stop thinking about it and start doing it.

Say yes to that thing that scares you because the things that scare us are what we need most.

Say yes to embracing something new and stop dwelling on the past or replaying memories that are hurting you.

Say yes to what you deserve and no to the things you don’t. Learn to higher your standards and don’t feel bad if that means you’re going to be standing alone until someone meets them. Because the person who does will be so worth it.

Say yes to accepting yourself, loving yourself and not fixating upon flaws that make you dislike who you are. Because you deserve self-love more than anyone.

Say yes to taking that chance and making a career change if where you right now does not feel right.

Say yes to the right people not the ones you feel a sense of obligation to. Let go of the ones who drain you and don’t add fuel to the fire within you.

Say yes to walking away. Because if you are questioning whether you should or not you probably should have already.

Even if it hurts to walk away sometimes the things and people we want the most are the ones we need to let go of.

Say yes to living your life according to your own agenda and expectations and stop living for other people.

Say yes to what you really want and don’t be afraid of it.

Say yes to everything you are right now and stop comparing yourself to other people.

Say yes to love and stop running towards the people you know can’t give you what you want and deserve. Sometimes people fear the right relationship so much they go for the wrong ones because when you get the right relationship then you have something to lose. But take that chance because you deserve a love that heals you.

Say yes to the right energy and learn to let go of negativity and stress and all those ugly things that bring you down.

Say yes to forgiving yourself. Because replaying your past mistakes or holding yourself accountable for things when you aren’t that person anymore isn’t fair.

Say yes because your ex-does not deserve any more time. Don’t let him haunt you.

Say yes to eating alone. Traveling alone. Doing things by yourself and realizing you are your best company and being alone doesn’t make you lonely.

Say yes to staying home because you probably aren’t missing much on another night out blowing money you could be saving. It’s okay to want to sit home sometimes and you don’t have to explain to people why.

Say yes to being happy because you deserve to be. You deserve to wake up every day and looking forward to what’s ahead.

Say yes to all of it because the only person holding you back is yourself and the things you tell yourself why you aren’t where you want to be doing something you should be.

Say yes to what you deserve.

Say yes to getting what you want.

Say yes to being happy.

Say yes until you are living the best you could be. And you’re going to look back and realize all of this was within your control of a simple word and embracing some of the things that scared you. TC mark

This Book Is For You 👇

The cover and theme for my newest book was inspired by the concept of kintsugi. All that is dark or cracked within us has the capacity to be fixed, to be filled with light. We are never broken. We are always becoming.
