Say “YES!”

As in “YES!”   I’m open, I’m ready, I trust, I believe, I have faith. Saying yes is being open to possibilities, to adventure, to light, to goodness, to taking the first step, to change, to digging deep, to trying new things.  Yes to God, to creation, to yoga, to people, to love, to the universe, to the moment.  Say Yes to the invitation, to the new book, to the new job, the new friend, the new idea, the old friends, family, the journey. 

 I love this poem called The Invitation  and part of it says…” I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!”” Meaning, no matter what got you to this place; now, in the moment, you can trust again and have the faith to say “yes!” Because “yes” is acceptance and joy and confidence and trust.  People that say yes are open to encouraging others, doing what needs to be done, learning more, accepting, moving on, growing, and using their gifts. 

 What do you think?  ….yes?

    Sue, you are an inspiration!!!
    A comment I heard yesterday fits in with your new blog…Everyone who is Christian today, in some way has been effected by the evangelization efforts of St. Paul who shared his faith 2,000 years ago. There were places that Paul went to share the Good News and he was not welcomed or successful. Some people “scoffed” at his message (Acts 18: 32) but those responses did not stop him. What kept him going was that he was completely convinced he had the truth…and he was guided by the Holy Spirit. I think that you know the truth that St. Paul knew…God’s love and forgiveness is infinite! Sue, the way you continue to reach out and love others is guided by the holiness in you. You really are an inspiration, my friend. Keep saying YES!
