Is this mine, was my October question. This place with the blue door in the meadow. This cottage with the piano inside. This yard with swings in three trees.
It takes courage to say Yes to your life when it shows up with a gift without warning. Like love at first sight. Your mind can come up with a long list of reasons (and fears) to say No.
It’s too much. It sounds hard. I’m not ready.
Or you can open your mind by hearing the thoughts of your heart.
It’s what I always imagined…in detail. It feels like a gift. I’m singing silly songs I’m so happy. It feels like home and we’re not even there yet. I believe I can do this! I will trust in the process…and outcome…and future.
Then give it some time. Take some deep breaths. Accept the October invitation. Wait for the November answer.
Yes. Yes. Yes!
Uncross your fingers and slap a high five!
Pack your boxes and move! Unpack. Bake a turkey. Give thanks. Begin to get settled. Add a tree. Hang some lights. Do the dance of a happy December.
Then let the adventure begin!!
Love this….Mary Oliver would love this…
Merry Christmas…a few days ago.
Yes and blue doors…we are at yes and tears… and Christmas Eve parties where Italian families talk over one another and laughter trumps tears…for a moment…and wet snow signals a day of what is sure to be very hard news…and a small dog sleeps next to me…and sweet creamy tea wakes me gently…to yes…yes to it all.
Yes! yes! I am rejoicing with you. Thank you for sharing the long-awaited answer and the beginning of new adventures.
