Dear Capable Girl,

It’s time to say yes to life . . . all of it. It’s time to say yes to what is burning in your heart, and it’s time to say yes to the lessons that life has to teach you.

So much pain comes from resisting what IS, from resisting things that are out of your control and can never be changed. So much joy comes from accepting what IS and only changing your response to things.

Sit with your feelings, whatever they are. Say YES to them. Sit with your dreams and say yes to those too. Accept what IS in this moment, rather than resisting it, avoiding it, or resenting it. So many times, whatever IT is just wants to be acknowledged, and then once you sit with it, it will evolve into something beautiful and valuable. Say YES to life in this moment.

You are LOVED.
