you’re allowed to say “no.”

Say yes to the trade winds and trust the direction they take you in.
Say yes to adventure if your heart beats and body thirsts for breaching your limits.
Say yes to exploration into a wild part of the world.
Say yes to a night of dancing with friends,
A game of charades,
To making a fool of yourself,
To karaoke even if you sing out of tune.
Say yes to everything that makes every hair on your body stand up,
Electric currents pulsing throughout your body,
Knees and hands shaking.
And if it doesn’t move you or stir up feelings of excitement and nerves
All at the same time,

Then say no.
