So, I didn't jump from an airplane or anything. Not yet, let's at least wait til the warmer months for that. But I did, as promised, say yes to many new things this month. One thing I didn't expect? Yawn. Yes month made me a little tired, phew, there was lots going on in November. Here are just a few things I said yes to:
- an opportunity to be part of a Cool Hunting/Gap pop up shop- gorgeous and on 5th Avenue no less.
-dinner with two of my favorite interior designers
- an unexpected brunch invitation to meet some awesome people whom I had only spoken with previously on twitter.
- an opportunity to expand the reach of Hammocks & High Tea (more on that later :)
More than anything though, what I realized Yes month was for me is a need to live more in the moment. It's hectic running a small business, and mentally exhausting sometimes. I've done a few interviews this month where people have asked what advice I would give an entrepreneur. Here it is: "love what you do, because for quite some time you will live what you do"- ME I also reached out this month, said more of what was on my mind, and took the time to be honest with myself about my life and business. Perhaps it's because November is a signal that December is almost here and will rush by you faster than you can say "Happy New Year"!!! I tend to live in the future, as do most people, and Yes month reminded me that the present is where I stand, and nothing happens inthe future if I don't take a chance right here. I'm still here, I'm still growing and doing my best in the moment, I'm certainly still learning, and I'm ever grateful.
