And the answer is…

Kate Beahan has long learned the power of no. Lorien Haynes is a yes person. We asked them to spend a month living opposite to their customary way

The glory of yes Kate Beahan takes a leap and accepts every invitation


I’m proficient with the word no. I have been practising for about two decades. As a person who used to be frightened to disappoint and as an artist surrounded by emotionally sensitive types (I, too, am one of these), I learned I needed to say no a long time ago. And the more I did, the more empowered I felt, the less I punished myself and the more energy and sincere generosity I had towards myself and others.

So, I have enjoyed no, but realise a consequence of this has been that it feeds into my introversion. I know I wouldn’t thrive without a decent amount of human contact, but I’m the one who is relieved when plans are cancelled. I am calm when alone with a book, or exercising solo, or whiling away a Sunday on my own at home.
