Yup, a big fat FAIL.
I know, "don't be so hard on yourself" is what you're thinking (well, hopefully) - but it's warranted, trust. And also, I have to be otherwise, how am I ever going to grow?
11 months ago I set out to make this my "year of yes". To be selfish, go with the flow, and take whatever opportunities come my way, in effort to let life show me where I'm headed, and not other way around.
Now, in many ways, I did this - especially the being selfish part, that bit has been really easy actually. But if I'm honest, despite my dozens of conscious yes's, I've had just as many, if not more, conscious no's.
So, I gotta re-start.
2014 + 1 month (this month) will be awesome.
No more vetos. No more being shy. No more over-thinking. No more silly rules about types, or long distance, or height. Ok, still height, I can't sacrifice that one - types too, it's who I am. But no more safety zones generally. Or depending on people I know to set me up with people they know, either. No more depending on anyone else, period. And certainly no more POF - that's for sure! (I know that one seems backwards, but that shit generated like 90% of my year's worth of no's, no joke.
... No more excuses, that's the motto. More "why not's", less why's.
Ok, I think I can handle that.
(Ps. I know that, technically speaking, those are all No's to begin with, and therefore futile to my point, but they're also all negative in nature, which would suggest cancellation. Because if a double negative, is technically a positive, then technically, they're now all yes's. Get it? Good.
