The Power of One Decision

Yes to joy. No to complaints. Reap contentment.

Yes to creating. No to excuses. Reap momentum.

 Yes to community. No to isolation. Reap connection.

Illustration by Andrew Black (bio below)

No to indecision. Yes to commitment. Reap clarity.

No to “I’ll try.” Yes to “I will.” Reap faithfulness.

No to no. Yes to yes. Reap opportunity.


Your turn…

Yes to                                      .

    yes to gratefulness
    yes to truth
    yes to laughter
    yes to giving
    yes to rest

    • Those words are chock-full of goodness.

  • Persist

  • Compassion for my critic. And I don’t mean my inner critic.

    • Critics can be frustrated creatives… or so I’ve heard.

      I wonder if this is the case for your scenario…

      Regardless, it’s great to learn compassion.
