Just Say "Yes!" Dear God, I say 'Yes!' to love today. Help me to give and receive love. I say 'Yes!' to happiness today. Help me to enjoy each moment. I say 'Yes!' to balance today. Help me to relax and smile. I say 'Yes!' to me today. Help me to listen to my heart. I say 'Yes!' to miracles today. I say 'Yes!' to life today. — from Robert Holden's book, Shift Happens "Yes!" is such a magical word, filled with agreement and intention and power. When we say "Yes!" to what we want in life, we open the door and welcome it in. When we say "Yes!" to the difficulities in our lives, we open the door to healing so those experiences we do not want may depart in peace. As Holden goes on to write in his book, Shift Happens "...when you are unhappy, honor it and say 'Yes' to healing. When you are struggling, notice it and say 'Yes' to greater ease. When you are afraid, breathe with it and say 'Yes' to help. When you are in pain, don't resist it, just say 'Yes' to peace. And when you are at your wits end, simply let go and say 'Yes' to a new beginning." May you always remember that tomorrow is not fashioned out of our minutes but out of our thoughts .

I like this article as it can put a new perspective on ones thoughts and help them look into their inner self for the stregth to be positive and not to give up. Also when someone says yes their mind is open to suggestions and new possibilities

Wow - I've never heard of this book or author but am going to have to see if I can find it. Sounds like some good reading for me to do in the near future. I like the word 'yes' it's possitive and uplifting and can be used for so very much good in our lives.
