The "Yes" Girl Like 0 Twitter Kara White Follow July 5, 2016, 2:04 p.m. in Life and Styles Views: 723 Like us on facebook I’m a “yes” girl by nature. Some people are born to play basketball. Some people are born singing songs. Me? I was born to say, “Yes.” That’s what it feels like anyways. You need volunteers to clean the park? Sign me up! Can I do a tennis lesson? Well, why not! Hiking at three? I’ll be there. Would I like to be a photographer for this random, miscellaneous event? Oh, would I ever! There’s a soccer game tonight! I’ll be sitting in the front! You’ve got an extra concert ticket to a band that I’ve never heard of? Yes, I’d love to go! Will I design your second cousin’s birthday invitations? Consider it done! Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Sometimes, that’s my life. I said sometimes because I’m working on it. I’m not perfect. I wish I didn’t feel compelled to jump on every opportunity that crosses my path. Give me a couple million dollars and the newest, greatest technology… Five clones of myself later, I still would not be able to do everything I wanted to. The dirty truth? Sometimes I make to-do lists on my church bulletin during the service. And probably use my planner more in a day than my Bible. But this is what I’m learning. Love. Joy. Peace. Patience. Kindness. Goodness. Faithfulness. Gentleness. Self-control. Busyness isn’t a Fruit of the Holy Spirit. So, here I am, preaching to myself. Busy does not equate happiness. You were meant to rest. Saying no is not the end of your world, their world, or anyone’s world. Take it from a girl who’s mantra is, “You can do hard things.” You can do hard things. But not all of the things… I'm Just Saying. Published by Kara White Share Mail Messenger Twitter Pinterest Linkedin Comments Related Article Life and Styles Are girls dreams not dreams?
