Last week I did something I very rarely do – I went out on a “school night.”
And I didn’t get back home until midnight, which is way past curfew for the girl who likes to be in bed by 9:15 every night (Yes, I’m a lameazoid on week nights and I’m not afraid to admit it!)
When Shane asked me if I wanted to go see Britt Floyd at Red Rocks with he and his dad, my first reaction was “no.” It tends to be that. Kind of like last weekend at Blend, when Heidi asked me at 7:00am if I wanted to go trail running. I’m pretty sure my initial reaction was scrunching up my eye brows and shaking my head NO at her. But then I decided to go. And I’m so glad I did, and was able to experience a morning in the Utah trails with my roomie buddies.

This is the same process that happened when Shane asked me to go to the Red Rocks concert. NO. Then, ok…maybe…yeah.
And again…I’m so glad I did! Not only did I get to experience the awesomeness of going to a concert in the middle of a mountain, but I also checked an item off of my 30 before 30 list, as well.
I’ve also decided that if you’re going to come and visit me, we’re going to go to a concert at Red Rocks. It doesn’t matter who’s playing; we’re going. We saw Brit Floyd, which is a famous Pink Floyd tribute band. I really like about 4 or 5 of Pink Floyd’s songs, but don’t really know any others. It was still a blast to be immersed in the amazing acoustics, fun and life-loving crowd, and such Colorado culture.
I still say “no” and stick with it for some things…if I feel I’m being pressured, if it sounds boring/something I dislike and have already experienced, if it’s too expensive in my opinion, if there’s already way too much on my schedule, etc. However, I’m slowly coming around to being a yes person.
I guess you could say that I’m slowly becoming a yes person. Right now, I’m a “no…ok, fine, yes-person.”
Do you consider yourself a yes person?
Do you go out on “school nights” often?
