The older we get the easier it is to start playing it safe. I feel like in our twenties we start to get set in our ways. We develop routines and certain habits without realizing it. While that’s all well and good, every now and then we need to mix it up. Here are a list of things that you should start saying yes to now that could possibly change your life:

1. Say Yes to That New Hairstyle- Ladies why is it that we always wait for some life changing event (normally a recent breakup) to update our look? Say yes to that buzz haircut you’ve dreamed about trying since watching 11 in Stranger Things a few months ago!

2. Say Yes to That Job Offer or To Starting your own Business- Scared to take that promotion at work? Or maybe you got offered a job but are hesitant to relocate? SAY YES. Scared of going off on your own and pursuing your passion full-time? Say Yes to it. Break up the monotony. Taking that promotion will challenge you and keep you sharp. Relocating will introduce you to new people and new places meaning new opportunities. Starting your own business will challenge you in ways you haven’t been challenged before, but it’ll also be the most rewarding thing you’ve ever experienced!

3. Say Yes to Trying That New Class at The Gym- It seems like there is always some new gym class that’s the latest trend. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably skeptical to break up your routine. I’m telling you to try it! I recently fell in love with spin class! And Zumba felt more like a party than a workout, but I definitely felt the workout part a day later!

4. Say Yes to The Guy (Girl) Who’s Not Your Type- It’s important to step outside of your comfort zone when it comes to dating. Now I’m not telling you to not have standards, but I am saying be realistic. Although the idea of holding out for your Prince Charming is cute, the truth of the matter is that there are no perfect men. There are also no perfect women. Don’t hold someone to standards that you yourself don’t meet. Give the guy who isn’t as tall as you’d like or doesn’t drive a super nice car a chance to show you his good qualities.

I hope this post leaves you feeling inspired! Are there any other things you think we should all start saying yes to immediately? I’d love to hear them from you!

  • I definitely need a new haircut! I just never know what to go for, haha 🙂

    • Lol I’ve had that some problem in the past!

  • If only I got asked some of these questions. I’m mulling over the new hairstyle but a new hair colour is on the cards and I’d like a new job x

    • A new hair color is just as good!

  • Such fantastic tips. I recently said yes to a new hairstyle and I am so glad I did. I also am looking at a potential new job…. fingers crossed!

    • I hope you get the new job!

    I definitely said yes to the new hairstyle, I’ve recently had 12 inches cut off my hair 🙂

    • That’s awesome! Are you loving it?

  • I’ve been thinking of changing up my hair so might have to go for it now! x

    • Changing your hairstyle is a great way to switch it up!

  • I love the positivity of your post and often think it is good to say yes but for some like starting a business I think you need to look at the situation to see if it is doable. I’m currently in the process of researching as I want to start my own business but it so hard to just start up xx

    • Thanks Jade! I totally agree with how difficult it can be to start!

      • There seems to he little information to help those who want to start too xx

  • I can totally agree with these, especially the trying a new class at the gym x

    • I’m glad you like my tips Rhian!

  • I agree it is a good idea to say yes when we still can because you never know what that opportunity can lead to x
