My friend Kelley's dad had a Christmas party last week, complete with a live band. At some point during the party, the band members asked my friend Monica to sing a Christmas song. So she snagged me and said, "Come sing, too!" I was hesitant but remembered my rule to, "say yes whenever possible." So I snagged my friend Kelley, too (because I'm only brave to a point!). And we sang a few songs! Just like the good old days! (We all did theater together back in the day.)
It was great fun! That "yes" was such a good idea. And I felt so smart for forcing myself to say it! :)
Our girls gave it a try, as well. They were so brave! They didn't seem nervous or shy at all up on stage singing. At one point when they were belting out Rudolph, my friend Amy said, "It's a shame they're so introverted." Hah.
So many times this holiday season, I've just had this overwhelming feeling of how lucky I am to have such wonderful friends and family. It's remarkable what kind and interesting people I am blessed to have in my life.
What have you said "yes" to lately that brought you a happiness boost?
