The Year of the "Yes"

Let this be the year in which you refrain from saying “no” to everything and everybody. Allow the world to be your oyster by declaring “yes” to all that you’ve avoided in the past.

Whether from fear, insecurity, laziness, or other restrictive excuses, delete “no” from your vocabulary and replace it with a celebratory “yes.” 

Give yourself the gift of receiving the multitude of treasures that await you when you’re willing to take a leap of faith.

You have the power, strength, and courage to bring to the surface the brilliance, love, and light that exists within, making you extremely attractive and alluring to the opposite sex.

Reveal the side of you that craves new adventures, resulting in the opportunity to soar physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Elicit the innocent, pure, simple, youthful, confident, trusting part of you, welcoming the many experiences the universe has in store. 

A “no” will keep you stuck. A “yes” will raise your spirits, boost your morale, jack up your esteem, and stimulate your psyche.

Here’s your chance to change and become the best possible partner, lover, boyfriend/girlfriend, man/woman you were meant to be.

Consent to a New Year overflowing with magical miracles and fulfilling relationships beyond what you could ever imagine.

Start by saying yes to attending a social soiree even if and especially when you’re feeling apprehensive, appalled, apathetic, anxious, angst-ridden, unmotivated, unenthusiastic, uninterested, unsure, and/or unstable.

Leave go of limiting beliefs such as I have no time, money, or incentive; the right clothes, hair style, or personality.

Release inhibiting thoughts, e.g. I’m not good-looking, thin, rich, smart, funny, cool, charming, sexy enough; or He/She’s not good-looking, thin, rich, smart, funny, cool, charming, sexy enough.

Abandon preconceived notions of the perfect mate and remain open to a surprising match.

Surrender your sullied and soiled perception of passion and affection. Stay amenable to an unexpected, unforeseen, out of the blue bonding, producing a meaningful and long lasting liaison.

Discard former ideas of what your soulmate must look, act, talk, or walk like and you’ll be amazed at who you may allure.
