Oh, #FiSaysYES. What a year we had, right? As I jumped in to 2016, I wondered: What happens to #FiSaysYES? Do I pack it up? Make a new goal? I did something I almost never do: I asked for advice (and took some unsolicited advice).
▪Zack, you suggested I keep it going in 2016. I’m down!
▪Mike L. and Aaron, you told me to move on. New Year, New Fi. I get it. I’ll keep moving forward.
▪Arthur doesn’t see anything wrong with saying “yes” for another year or forever. He’d also like me to TM the hashtag. Adore his business mind.
▪Mike T., you think #FiSaysNo will be good for me. Fine, fine. I’m going to do that a little more. My immune system thanks you.
▪Donald, you said that no one likes yearly fads and that this is now my identity. I like this.
▪Annie and Amy, you told me if it makes me feel good and helps me, to keep it. It really does. It holds me accountable to a way of life that I’ve grown to love. Yahhhssss.
▪David, you’re sensing a life change; you don’t think I can plan what’s next for #FiSaysYES. You’re right. Truth is an experience. Not a belief. And I’m excited about this.
▪Fred, when I asked you what to do, you replied, “Say ‘yes’ forever, my dear.” This was my favorite piece of advice. I will.
A number of you also encouraged me to write about my experience…Steph, Virginia, Jenn. I love this idea and have been thinking about it for some time. I do have some silly and sweet stories to tell…So this year, I’ll be putting fingers to keyboard to get it started. We’ll see what happens. David and Amy: Prepare for editing duties. I’m terrified but ready.
“YES” has become who I am. It’s the way I live. The way I see. The way I love. And honestly, life is just better this way.
In 2016, I will be taking this “yes” thing to the next level and living the life I want, writing the story I want. More spontaneity, less fear, more intention. I hope to see you on the journey. Because last year was hella fun.
Happy New Year, friends and family. Now let’s go do it for the story.
