What if I would have said no?

Have you ever had an experience that you look back on, and freak out at the thought of what you could have done? 

I’ve been living in Oklahoma for about three months now, which feels both very weird and normal to say. Today, I opened up my Day One journal app and read some of the things I had written in the past. I realized that a good chunk of my total entries, especially for most of 2013, chronicled the journey of where I am now. The funny thing is seeing things I wrote that seemed random at the time were, in fact, intertwined beautifully. 

On December 14, 2013, I wrote this: 

Fear is what will crumble you if you let it. Fear will rob you of so many opportunities if you let it.

Looking back, I had so much fear and doubt before moving here to Oklahoma. But now that I’m here, I can’t help but ask myself, What if I would have said no? I hate to think about the opportunities I would have missed out on and the regret I would have. And I’m so glad I said yes.

So that begs the question: What is it that you may be about to say no to that you should being say yes to?
