saying yes

orange skirt & edamame, originally uploaded by pilgrimgirl.

Today I said "Yes" to:

-an orange swishy skirt, my new favorite. feeling so good against my legs in the breeze

-edamame from my favorite blue bowl on the porch in the afternoon, with crushed sea salt on top (yum!)

-a new haircut (way overdue), from a new super-good stylist who invested more than an hour in my crop of thin hair, gave me an awesome scalp massage, and had me giggling the whole time. Anyone who needs a referral, drop a line in the comments!

-getting work done on my dissertation and making a significant discovery about two of "my" doctors.

-reading Moby Dick on the beach as the kiddos were at paddling practice in the early evening:

"Yes, as everyone knows, meditation and water are wedded for ever..."

PS: H/T to Maddie for the style of this post & photo. She is always an inspiration. :)

Yes! and more Yes!

Thank you, Jana. You continue to inspire me.

I have come to believe and understand it is much better to recognize and focus on the positives rather than the worrisome, perfectionistic and disabling negatives.
