Yes. Oui. Ja. Aye. Si.

I like to believe that saying yes is good for you. Not only is this little word an affirmative exclamation, but it renders positivity to both those who give and receive it. It’s an especially useful and conductive word for graduates in a position such as mine. This is why I’ve made a resolution (who needs to wait until 2015?!) to dole out more of these little gems.

This limbo is a prime time to do some of the best exploring, if you just open yourself up to the opportunity. Go to that interview/party/workshop/gathering – you might just end up having a great time. That aside, you may network and make some great connections. Or you could end up stumbling upon the best G&T that London has to offer. Or you could find the love of your life and live happily ever after. The point is, there are a million different opportunities that you’re completely unaware of, just waiting for you. Worst thing that could happen is that whatever you signed up for is not that great… so you just go back home. At least you tried.

Think about the alternative; the job-hunt leaves you spending way too much time at home (probably in your p.j.’s, I won’t lie) staring at a screen. On your own. It’s easy to get sucked into that little bubble, completely unaware of what’s going on just outside your window. If you’re anything like me, you’ll find yourself making all kinds of excuses as to why you can’t possibly go anywhere or do anything. Believe me – the lure of your bed can wait. It will be there when you get back!

Since I’ve started ignoring my inner sloth I’ve been subject to some amazing experiences ranging from fabulous (and boozy) catch-ups, mouth-watering meals, a sexy magazine launch and even an impressive 3 course Michelin starred lunch dangling 100ft up in the air.

Who knows what could be awaiting you if you use that magical three-lettered word a little bit more often.
Just say yes.
