Just Say YES Postlette 3 ~ Yes, Sweetcakes

yes sweetcakes 042316

Recently, I noticed that when I hear unwelcome news I say one thing – “Oh no!” Whenever I say it, I feel the resistance to whatever I’m hearing, the clench against what is happening. Since then, I’ve been playing with saying Yes. It might be, “Yes and I’m so sorry.” Or it might be, “Yes and I see I have no control over that.” Or, “Yes, that’s not what I expected and this can work, too!” There is power in Yes. This week, five mini-postlettes about just that.

I have mixed feelings about the word “God.” I’ve so often heard it used judgmentally or manipulatively that I get a little twitchy when it’s bandied about. But this poem came through my Facebook feed not long ago and I loved it to pieces. If you prefer, use “The Universe” or “Spirit” or whatever you’d like to hear say YES to you.

God Says Yes To Me
by Kaylin Haught

I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes
she said you can do just exactly
what you want to
Thanks God I said
And is it even okay if I don’t paragraph
my letters
Sweetcakes God said
who knows where she picked that up
what I’m telling you is
Yes Yes Yes
