Note to Self

If you remember only one thing this week, remember this.

note to self

I saw this in my inbox the other day, and I just knew that I had to write about it. I have thought there have been so many things that could have happened in my life, but I choose not to let it happen because I was too afraid of saying yes.

There was always something in my mind; that has always held me back. For instance, a couple of weeks ago I went to visit my friend Sarah.

Yes, the Sarah that did my blog header. She lives about an hour away from me. Her backyard is absolutely beautiful. I mean she lives on the Intracoastal waterway. Just look at her view.



This was the first time I had visited her; my mom came along with me. Sarah was talking about my girls, and I  coming back to kayak. I was all for it, but then my mom said not me. You won’t catch me doing that. I was silently thinking to myself, and nobody asked you, Mom.

You see I have always struggled with being confident. And for the first time I am saying screw it. I am going to do the things I have always wanted to do. No more sitting on the bench watching life pass me by. I am not going to listen to the naysayers that question my decisions I am going to live my life and enjoy it because after all it is my life and I don’t want to be at the end and live with regrets.

So remember until you say YES nothing great can happen. After all, your life started with someone saying yes to someone else.

So just say YES!!

  1. First of all I would like to say terrific blog!

    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out
    there. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!
