Being a Yes

March 04, 2015


“The most empowered place we can be is not, ‘I’ve got it all figured out.’ It is to be brave enough to ask the questions over and over, ‘What am I not seeing that’s limiting me? What do I need to see that’s new for me?’ We’re afraid to ask that, because we’re worried about what we might have to confront and deal with as a result. But that’s what frees us: facing what we need to face, giving up what we need to give up, and being a yes for what’s next.”

  1. Wonderful advice friend. Especially the giving up what we need to give up in order to say yes! Have a great week-end.

  2. Very interesting quote. One thing that has been rolling around in my mind since the beginning of this year is "Questions" ... I keep noticing interesting questions and I want to print them off or write them down ... so I can find a few minutes to "chew" on them and write down some reflections. Since I haven't yet sat down to write... (but I keep finding interesting questions) I'm now thinking of finding a jar, printing off the questions, and filling the jar with them. Then when I have a few minutes I can sit down in the living room and sit back and pick out a question and "write". I'm sort of thinking on the fly right now.... but this idea is appealing to me and yur quote got me started! I think I'll go look for a jar.... ;-)

  4. Claire--What an interesting idea: jotting down questions/things to ponder when they arise, then randomly writing about them. I'd love to hear some of your questions and the refelections they stir up.
