Say yes to life! Say yes to the rain, snow, and wind. Say yes to the bills, the unforseen car repair, the loss of a loved one. Say yes, because to say no is to waste your precious life energy fight what is or what has been.
I hate this weather one might think. This means I hate this moment, I hate what is. How does it feel to think we hate what is? It feels like a struggle, unpleasant, angry.
How do we show up in our lives when we fight what is? Tense, hostile, aggressive.
Say what you will about this thinking but when I accept what is I feel great joy, when I fight I suffer.
Example: “Someone needs to push carts.” My team lead states. “I’d love too!” I reply. I feel joy, enthusiasm, harmony, inner peace. Yes even when it’s cold and/or snowing. I say yes to the weather too!
When there are several drive ups and guests needing help, if I start to think I can’t do it all, why isn’t anyone helping, this is unfair. I suffer. I’m frantic, bitchy, and angry.
Think about where This might be true for you. Saying yes to life makes sense to me.
These concepts are discussed by great minds such as Byron Katie, Eckhart Tolle, Michael A Singer, Jack Canfield, Susan Jeffers, and many more.
