Sunset or Sunrise -Keep going farther!


I’m celebrating my first day in my new Seattle office!  Walking from the ferry this morning along the waterfront, I noticed the beautiful sunrise light, the light of a new beginning, dancing on the water.  Last night at sunset, Kevin and I finally arrived at a long overdue BIG decision to say NO.  Today at sunrise, I welcome a new chapter in my business with a long overdue YES!!!   The No had to happen to make room for the Yes.  We must let go of where we are stuck before we can grasp on to what is next.  This is the only way we “go farther”.  I notice the limiting “default” setting of my mind is to yo-yo back and forth trying to avoid both the no and the yes, trying in vain to keep things exactly as they matter how much suffering is present.   Actually, I believe the tendency toward indecision, to cling to our comfort zone  is stronger when we are suffering.  Now that I’m enjoying my Yes…I realize once again the power of paving the way for a Yes with a No.   Sunrise can’t happen without Sunset.  Where do you choose to say No to embrace your most cherished Yes?  I challenge you to do it right now!

  1. Jeaneen – always powerful and always moves my heart and soul to the cherished place I don’t visit often enough. You are a gifted, inspirational, courageous, glorious and gracious woman and I’m so very fortunate to call you my Friend.

  2. This is too true – and where I am today in my back and forth is similar to what you describe as the lead up – I am flirting with the No – yet seem to be conditional with it. In other words, the No I am facing means letting go of certain things as well as not accepting to do others. In my notion of having my cake and eating it too, I want it all and so don’t want to let go of all things associated with the letting go which must happen. I agree with your notion that the higher the pain levels are the more we cling and on some levels the more we get batted around b/w the two poles. Congratulations on reaching Yes 🙂
