The Tao of Yes
That's the view from the window next to my favorite table in the cafe where I go to write some days, away from the distractions of home. You can set up by that window and sit there for hours nursing one cup of coffee and no one cares. Today I'm ruminating. Feeling unsure. I have to decide whether to move forward with a project and I am in the weeds, making up stories that might be based on good and valid instincts, but which might just as likely be nothing more than nature abhorring a vacuum, and into that vacuum I habitually rush with all sorts of worst case scenarios. Do I just jump? Say yes with all my angst and not knowing? Is it enough to trust the very fact that I'm standing here? Maybe I should read that book Shonda Rhimes wrote, Year of Yes. What do you think? Would a hell yeah mindset make life simpler all around?
