‘I’m no longer quite sure what the question is, but I do know that the answer is YES.’
~ Leonard Bernstein
Yes feels good…
Like possibilities, ocean spray, a good book, laughter of your best friend and more.
Yes feels like flamenco reds and Caribbean blues, Muir woods greens and Provencal yellows.
Yes feels like starry nights on shades of velvet blue.
Yes feels like you wanna dance—and so you do!
Yes sounds like the birds singing at dawn’s early light and the voice of Pavarotti’s Nessun Dorrma
Yes tastes like your favorite iced drink on the hottest day of the year and a garden tomato just plucked from the vine.
Yes looks like you putting you first. Letting go of routines to embrace new things. Saying good bye to habits that never served you and asking yourself all the ways you can begin again to say yes to the real you within.
It’s a beautiful word.
So simple, so short that holds unthinkable joy.
A beautiful life is one long exhale of yes….!
This conversation is one of those that goes deep and creates space to think about what we want to be saying YES to now.
Without justifying or explaining or trying to help someone understand why YES, why now—what is your YES?
For me? Putting writing and reading and painting in the forefront of my days. To make a practice of loving myself and my life so much that I actually do the things that bring me joy.
Yes feels good.
