Saying Yes to Life

In the last few weeks,  my life has taken a dramatic turn around and it’s all down to changing my mind set on one word… Yes! I’ve knows for a long time now that saying ‘no’ is a safe answer, it means that you can safely head home, order a pizza and watch a whole series on Netflix, it means that you keep your satisfactory 9-5 job and safely pay your bills on time.

So many celebrity deaths I’ve lost count, multiple terrorist attacks and a refugee crisis. That’s what’s been happening in the world, let alone so many of us experiencing our own personal loss and incredibly difficult times. But if you’re reading this, you’re one tough cookie and you’ve made it to 2017! One thing I have come to understand about tough times is that they always, without a doubt, make you stronger and even more determined to do better.
