Today, I said “Yes.”
I’m not sure if it matters whether or not you know what I’ve said yes to–but if you have been reading along for a while, you know that I’ve been on the verge of a decision that could have a big impact in our daily lives. So today, I said “yes” to that opportunity–and what a wonderful word it is!
I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that a Friend had recommended reading Nancy Bieber’s Decision Making and Spiritual Discernment: The Sacred Art of Finding Your Way. Here’s what she has to say about “saying yes”:
There is something mysterious about saying “yes.” It sets things in motion. Whether it is to a marriage proposal, a job offer, or an invitation to get together with friends, something shifts when we say “yes.” Something is beginning. In the first minute or two, nothing actually looks different. We haven’t entered the marriage, started the job, gone to the party. We have, however, opened to a specific yet unknown future. Whether that seems more like a risk or a great delight, the fact that we’ve said “yes” to it changes things.
So that is where I’m at today–saying yes, and welcoming the opening that it offers.
