Attention: This is NOT positive thinking!
This is EMBRACE (itive?) thinking... Saying yes to what is doesn't mean you love it and aren't going to do anything about it. It just means you are not going to push up against it. If you don't just accept... (a term all too often identified with defeat,) but actually EMBRACE what is, then, in that next moment, you have COMPLETELY RESTORED your freedom and power.

BONUS Scientific Fact:
Although "Yes!" can sound simply positive, it really runs much deeper. Based on years of hearing, "yes" and "no", just speaking (or reading) the word immediately signals the nervous system that everything is all right and then we can think clearly instead of through the haze of stress chemicals. We can actually see the choices on the clothing rack of life... and only buy what fits us!
