Kristin, here today. Letters are still by Lindsay, though.
Bare with me while I get a little Bieber on you today.
I used to be a "never" gal. "I will never do that." "Nope, never going to be me."
And I was proud to be a "never" girl. It meant I knew what I wanted to do. It meant I had my priorities. It meant I knew when to say "yes" and when to say "no".
I never want to offer products, I only want to offer services.
I never want a cat, dogs are a woman's best friend.
But I didn't realize that I'm not always going to be the same person. My priorities are going to change. What I didn't do or want yesterday, I might want today.
I'm dreaming daily different sorts of products Lindsay and I could create.
I'm begging for a cat because I've come to appreciate their sass and think it'd be fun to have one around.
So now, I never say never.
This doesn't mean that I still don't know when to say "yes" or when to say "no" to something in the here and now. But by never saying never, I've allowed myself the space to evolve. I'm not always going to be the same person or business owner. I'm always growing and learning and I credit that to banishing never from my vocabulary.
What are your thoughts on the word?
