What if I just said yes? What if I just gave up stressing about or resisting what is {and what may be coming}? What if I choose to embrace it. To simply say YES. That is what started my Monday YES posts. It's a reminder to myself to simply see life in all of it's craziness, decisions, shortcomings in a different way.  

This week I am saying yes....
... in counting it all joy
... to guarding the words that I allow to come out of my mouth
... I am saying yes in trusting that I believe that my 'enough' is truly enough
... I am saying yes to being silly with my boys
... to getting my Diet Coke and drinking it all by 9am
... to remembering why I loved to dance
... to not comparing myself to other moms
... I am saying yes to cheering my Brady on at his first tournament game
... I am saying yes to being consistent in my parenting even when it easier to give in
... to praying more for my family 
... worrying less and trusting my God more
... I am saying yes to being different
.... I am saying yes to jumping on the trampoline with my boys in the rain
... yes to encouraging others with my words
... I am saying yes to putting a lock on my fridge so my sneaky, adorable little Cole will stop opening it every 2 seconds
... I am saying yes to sitting my booty on the couch and watching all my new Fall shows

So tell me, What are YOU saying yes to this week?

  1. Great list Maria! You should consider making your "Yes" posts linkies, like every Monday. I bet you it would catch on quick! Have a great week saying YES! {Our Monday was a rough one, I'm still thinking through my "Yes" list for the week.} :)

  2. did you happen to go to women of faith? this year one of the speakers main lessons was about saying yes:)

  3. Love them all but two faves...not comparing to other moms and worry less trust God more. I need to say YES to both of those!! Thanks beauty~

  4. Emily~ Thats a great idea. I have thought about doing that but wasn't sure how successful it would be! Maybe I should just say 'yes' :)

    Everdaymomma~ I wasn't at that conference but I REALLY want to go to one. I heard they are fabulous. I really wish I could of heard that speaker!!

    Meg~ Worry and Comparing gets me every week! Something all of us can say YES to doing less of!
