It’s not going to turn out the way you thought.

This is gorgeous! I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!


My “yes, please” and “no, thanks” list

listI’ve seen this done on other sites, and really loved the idea. Simply, this is the list of things I would love to have in my life, as well as a list of sparks I do NOT want to chase. Some are big, others are small, and several are downright silly, but here we go:

Yes, please! A wide and varied list of experiences.

No, thanks! A single, decades-long career.

Yes, please! A tiny minimalist home – maybe a cute studio with  big windows!

No, thanks! A house with a picket fence, property taxes, and a mortgage.

Yes, please! A wardrobe made up of a few unique second-hand finds.

No, thanks! A big collection of expensive, designer clothes.

Yes, please! A life without debt and a job that just pays the bills while offering a lot of free time.

No, thanks! A big income and no time to enjoy it.

Yes, please! A good portfolio of knitting stitches.

No, thanks! Crocheting at all. I just cannot get the hang of the thing!

Yes, please! A story that impacts others in a positive way.

No, thanks! Fame.

Yes, please! A strong, healthy, flexible body.

No, thanks! Running.

Yes, please! A meaningful and personal social life.

No, thanks! Hanging out with more than 4-5 people at a time.

Yes, please! Honesty.

No, thanks! Hiding and guessing.

Yes, please! A life without fear.

No, thanks! A life full of what-ifs and over-thinking.

What’s on your “yes, please” and “no, thanks” list? If you write one, and leave a link to it below, I’ll reblog it!
