Learn to say yes
To what comes your way
Why turn away day to day
And limit the provision of all
For which you pray?
Instead, NO is what you say,
And we forget to play.

Your. eternal. salvation.

Remain open, ready to accept
Instead of shuddering in fear,
Impressing your peer,
And year after year
Shedding tear after tear,
Pulling yourself away from
All that surrounds you

Learn to say yes.

You beg and plead on your knees,
Worried about fees
Asking for keys
To unlock the gates
And screaming "save the trees!"

Trying to find what you need,
You take up a creed,
And try until you bleed.
But everything's already there
Hanging in the air
To soothe every care
Don't have to pay no fare,
You  have to be bare
Just take the dare

Over the years I have learned to say NO because I used to say YES to everything and got burned out...but you are right...we must learn to say YES to the right things or miss out on a lot. Very nice.

Like this one Jess, so much negativity around these days it seems that perhaps we all need a little reminder like this.

It's always good to be positive and upbeat...
