    Thursday August 8th Hazelden Thought for the Day

    Saying Yes

    Yesterday we talked about learning to say no. Today, let’s discuss another important word: Yes.

    We can learn to say yes to things that feel good, to what we want – for others and ourselves.

    We can learn to say yes to fun. Yes to meetings, to calling a friend, asking for help.

    We can learn to say yes to healthy relationships, to people and activities that are good for us.

    We can learn to say yes to ourselves, what we want and need, our instincts, and the leading of our Higher Power.

    We can learn to say yes when it feels right to help someone. We can learn to say yes to our feelings. We can learn to identify when we need to take a walk, take a nap, have our back rubbed, or buy ourselves flowers.

    We can learn to say yes to work that is right for us.

    We can learn to say yes to all that will nurture and nourish us. We can learn to say yes to the best life and love has to offer.

    Today, I will say yes to all that feels good and right.
