This past week, there's a lot of no's showing up in my life. What I read, what I say – it's a lot about taking a stand, choosing with intention, & making a decision. Every time, I need to ask myself: "Who am I? What are my values?" and from there my action ensues.
The marvelous thing about this is that simultaneously, I am saying "Yes!" to something else:
"No" to late night working, "Yes" to feeling refreshed the next morning.
"No" to following the herd, "Yes" to being authentic.
"No" to my pride, "Yes" to a harmonious relationship.
I can't help to see the grace in every opportunity – it's bursting with it! Can you see it?
"No" to judgement, "Yes" to a connection.
Some pairs are more obvious, others are more paradoxical, yet it takes a discerning eye to find them in our everyday lives. In the end, it's a matter of inquiring what matters most & then consciously acting upon it. 'Cause there's no change without action.
Have you said "no" to something or someone today? I hope so :)
