Dear Inspiring Soul,

What if for the next 24 hours you said “yes” to whatever lessons life hands you?

Say yes to crazy things that have shown up that you weren’t expecting, but that you know are meant just for you.

Say yes to the opportunity to love unconditionally, even if it is difficult.

Say yes to the opportunity to forgive another, even if it has seemed impossible.

Say yes to the things that are creating resistance, because they are making you stronger.

Say yes to disappointments . . . and say yes to what is going to show up instead.

We bring ourselves so much pain and suffering when we resist the flow of life . . . when we try to paddle upstream or walk DOWN an escalator that is going UP.

When we stop and accept the things that we cannot change . . . accept them just as they are . . . without conditions or expectations . . . we free ourselves from so many unpleasant things.

After we have done all we can, we need to just let things go, and even say yes to the lessons they are bringing. It is silly and futile to continue to hold on to the belief that we have control over things that we can never control, like outcomes and people.

C’mon . . . just for 24 hours. You can do anything for 24 hours. Chances are, you will love the way this feels so much that you will stick with it even longer. Isn’t it worth a try?

You are so loved, never forgotten, and never alone.
