The Power of Saying ‘YES’ + (Baby Bowman Cuteness)

As Seen On

It’s been a busy few weeks for us here at Womack and Bowman with Rachel giving birth to her beautiful daughter Genevieve Mary on June 12th. The (long) and difficult labor, feelings of confusion  (“Am I doing this right?”) and sleepless nights pale in comparison to her excitement and gratitude for the incredible gift she has been given.

In growth of a different kind… Our studio and business headquarters, Womack and Bowman – The Loft is currently negotiating an expansion which we are super excited about! If all goes to plan we will be doubling our studio size by taking over the building next to ours (it used to be a real estate agents office, what a waste of 22 foot ceilings, right?) which means more space and opportunities for workshops, classes, photo and video shoots as well as more rigging points and comfort for our AiRise Performance Retreat participants (FYI November is sold out but we still have a few spots available for AiRise August, you can apply here).

In business, in life, in our aerial practice there are opportunities for all of us to experience immense growth, expansion and change. Whether in the form of creating a family, buying a house, performing for the first time in front of an audience or even taking an aerial class on a apparatus that you are unfamiliar with.

Choosing to expand and grow, rather then staying stagnant will challenge you to discover more about yourself, build confidence and resilience as you ‘step up to the plate’ and into that new (perhaps scary) role of mother, business owner, performer, leader or explorer. This bravery and willingness to be open, to saying ‘YES’ to your life, will  lead you on a beautiful journey to a richer more fulfilling experience of life.

Think back on your life, and consider the various things that you have said YES to where it would have been easier to just say NO. Typically you will find that there are several moments in your life where saying YES didn’t seem like much of a big deal, but this soon led to a chain of events that guided you in a valuable new direction. And it all of course started with that initial YES. So yes, there is certainly value in saying YES, even if we don’t quite understand that value in the short-term.

Here is a list of things that we should be saying YES to that will help us live a more optimal life according to life coach and founder of IQ Matrix  Adam Sicinski:

  • Say YES to opportunities to attempt something new that you hadn’t tried before.
  • Say YES to possibilities for new adventures, challenges, and experiences.
  • Say YES to things that somewhat scare you or that you don’t quite understand.
  • Say YES to things that break your monotonous rituals, habits, and routines.
  • Say YES to things that help you learn something new about yourself, about others and about life.
  • Say YES to building friendships and connections with strangers.
  • Say YES to experiencing changes that feel uncomfortable and yet somewhat exciting at the same time.
  • Say YES to unexpected invites that create interest and pull you out of your comfort zone.
  • Say YES to random encounters and coincidences that you don’t quite understand but would like to make the most of.

How can you harness the power of ‘Yes’ this week to open up possibilities for growth and expansion?

Perhaps you could accept that invitation to dinner and drinks with your cute co-worker?

Maybe you apply for an aerial retreat with Womack and Bowman (wink, wink)?

Or maybe you finally carve out time to take that girls trip to Vegas/Cabo/San Francisco that your best friend keeps going on about?

Whatever your ‘Yes’ looks like, make it big, make it bold and open the door for wonder, personal growth and new and exciting possibilities for your life!

We will see you in the air soon!
