Street question: the best thing you’ve ever said yes to

YEHEEEEEES! As you might know, the Chapter Friday team are saying yes to all of life’s twists and turns. We’re saying yes the need to take the time to ourselves and Hedwig en Jeroen said yes to a big adventure that will change their lives forever.

This yes-vibe inspired us to hit the streets and ask people what the best thing was they ever said yes to. It’s something we would like to do more: we loved talking to people who gave unexpected, but very uplifting answers. What was the best thing you ever said yes to? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below! :)

Nick (25), a student at AMFI: “It’s hard to think of something that was the best, actually. I said yes to a road trip through Morocco recently and I’m very happy I did so. It was very inspiring and unexpected. I’ve been to places no other tourist went to. As we crossed the country, I really have an idea of Morocco and her beauty now.”

Amel (28), photographer: “Last year, a friend of mine asked me to join him on a trip to Thailand. It was my second time in Thailand: the first time I went there was actually traveling to ‘find yourself’. I ended up partying the whole time and discovered I was pretty good in it. This time, we just chilled on the beach and it was exactly what I needed. I’m wondering if the country will change now that the king has passed away.”

Lorena (30), architect: “Saying yes to living in the Netherlands. I was born in Ecuador and grew up in Spain. At 25, I made the decision to move to Amsterdam on my own, without knowing anybody. As it’s an international city, It was easy to start a new life and I enjoy it every day.”

Jane (36), Office manager: “That’s easy: when we decided to have kids. My little one is six now. She’s not joining me on this trip to Amsterdam (Jane is from Hamburg, red.), I’m on a business trip, unfortunately.”

    The biggest advantage a flood light has over a spotlight is that it can illuminate a larger space with the same lumen output and wattage as a spotlight.

    Most fashion designers, however, work for apparel manufacturers, creating designs of men’s, women’s, and children’s fashions for the mass market.

    Great blog

    Thanks for the great post comment this site.

    The iPhone 7 will have enough battery to last you a full day with heavier use and it may go to a day and a half, but it simply does not last as long as the 7 Plus.

    Three things: I said yes to quitting law school and starting something new in a different town; I said yes to hiking the Fjallraven Classic without any backpacking experience (it was ridiculously tough but so rewarding); and I said yes to my boyfriend when he asked me to marry him. All three decisions I will never forget and cherish forever!

    Wow those are spectacular things!
