My dear friend Holley gave me a deck of Mindfulness Cards a while ago. Todays card is “Yes, Yes, Yes”! It made me think of the above Liza Minelli song.
“The idea of saying a giant, fat “Yes!” to everything that comes your way might feel cheesy or over the top, but as a mindfulness exercise, the practice of “yes” can be incredibly freeing. Whenever you notice any resistance to something that is happening in your direct experience, such as a difficult emotion or difficult sensation, instead of pushing it away try saying “yes” to the feeling and see what happens if it feels OK to do so.
I have a lot to say about saying Yes… and saying no. In improv there’s the whole concept of saying “Yes, and” to further the story and often it’s good to apply that to life as well.
Hello.... let me re-introduce myself... it's been a while.
I'm currently in a state (once again) where my life has crumbled and I'm starting over.
My last post was in 2019.... A lot has happened since then. Cliffnotes:
More deaths of people I love
Moved across the country
Fired From Job
Burnt out and Broken
Moved back home (across the country)
Now attempting to rebuild and rise from the ashes for the ... I've lost count (millionth) time.
It's a lot.
