I love this thought/phrase: that ‘yes’ “unlocks the magic in ourselves”.
Love this so much! I have found that the questions asked of me lately by the Universe/God are not the questions I hope to be asked. And while it feels disappointing in the moment, I still believe in the magic and know that in time I’ll feel grateful for the questions and Yes’s I was not expecting.
YOU are magic…..YES you are
Wow. What a wonderfully written piece and yoru timing is freaking awesome. Thank you friend.
I think it’s important to be able to say no to things you feel like you should do so you have space to say yes to the fun things, the adventures, the things you want to do. I say yes to too many things I feel like I should be doing and end up with my plate full of those, leaving no space for the random yesses that might fill my cup.
With shaking hands, I type this; I will say Yes. :')
As I'm learning to say "No" to things that don't bring me joy or protect my peace, I'm also finding that sometimes the "yes" may be a whisper and not a shout. That "yes" is my own acknowledgement and encouragement be true to myself. Funny how we have to give ourselves permission to honor ourselves over someone else's demands.
What an incredible reminder so perfectly timed. I just experienced some loss of income and am now treading water in uncertain employment circumstances. Been wondering what the next path is in my life. Considering taking the risk of starting a new business, despite not knowing where it will lead. Although I know I could go out and just find a typical job, I just can't shake the nagging feeling that I am meant to forge my own path. I want to make a living doing the variety of things that I love and that fulfill me. If I've learned anything the past few years, it's that nothing is certain. So I might as well follow the yearning that lives in the deepest part of me. Might as well find a creative way to build my own future and financial security. In the coming days, there will be a lot of saying "yes" to things that scare me. I hope I can unlock the magic that I'm dreaming of.
I loved this and I also needed it as well. My wife is a yes person. She says yes to all the things, adventures, dinners, outings, etc. For a while I got so frustrated with it with a family of 6 it’s easier to keep everyone home and not take the circus out and about all the time. I recently realized that when I go with the flow and say yes..just like you said..something magic normally happens that I would’ve missed being a knot on a log. Thank you for sharing this. I’ll hold it close to my heart.
