Saying “Yes” to life does not mean bending over and letting it do you up the arse.
Nor does it mean pretending to be okay with the things you are truly not okay with.
It means that whenever something crosses your path, whether you’d have chosen it or not, you don’t waste a second of your time resisting it, or wishing it hadn’t crossed your path. It did cross your path.
In denial, you are powerless. But when you accept it, you regain your power. Now you get to decide what to do with it.
It’s not a “Yes, fine, I give up, nothing ever goes my away anyway.”
It’s a “Yes, thit thing happened. Maybe I wouldn’t have planned it like that, but now that it’s happened, I get to write the script on what I do about it.”
