Ok, which one is it? Is it that when you open your mind, decide to allow things into your life…that your stars change? Or is it that coz your stars are aligned differently that you change your mind? Which one happens first?

I wouldn’t say I’m much of a believer in astrology, but I am open minded about most things in life. How can one know if it works, unless one tries it? So I think that if you are willing, the universe follows. Which kinda reminds me of a Jim Carrey movie called Yes Man.  It’s about a guy who says no to everything and then after attending a “Yes Seminar” with a motivational coach, decides to say yes to anything that comes his way. Exciting concept I think 😉

I say yes to everything too…with a few exceptions, of course..like …letting my 2 year old niece drive 😛 But I guess I’m mostly a yes girl 🙂 because of which I’ve had so many awesome experiences! I dont know whether it’ll work out or not or what is there in store for me, but I’m always willing to try it. Having said that, it’s obvious that one is expected to say yes sensibly. You can’t possibly give away everything in your wallet (you can if you’re adventurous!) But the key is to go with your instincts. Unfortuately, more often than not our judgement is clouded by our so-called rational thinking. So pushing yourself a little, just a little beyond your comfort zone doesn’t hurt.

But a lot of people ask me how do you differentiate? Well here’s how :- If you’re contemplating doing something, close your eyes and breathe. Focus on the question at hand and ask it to yourself. The very first response that you get is from your gut. Do this twice or thrice at different times, coz your state of mind will vary, but your answer will be the same. After a while, you’ll just know! I ended up seeing the Taj Mahal on my birthday! A trip which seemed impossible to pull off coz it was planned at the last minute, literally, but only coz we said yes! Honestly, I don’t recall a single incident that I might have regretted coz of saying yes. Life is a buffet of opportunities and choices.And it’s amazing that when we expect wonderful things to happen, they actually do. All we have to do is say yes!

So, do you wanna try it?
