sometimes a “no” can be as good as a “yes”

sometimes a “no” can be as good as a “yes.”


finding out where you are not, is not so different than finding out where you are.  both serve as a boundary of sorts.  and so i watch myself (somewhat amused as if i am merely an onlooker) as i find new freedoms in what i may not have, what i may not do, who i may never become.  and i smile because the exhale i release is not bitter.  rather i exhale the idea that i have already become, that my life, as it is, is already good. i need nothing more, no more acceptance, no more accomplishments, no more love.  i am awash in abundance.


seeking not to strive but to bask in beauty, this is my life.

  1. Beautifully and thoughtfully shared. I’ll be pondering this for a while. As someone who only wants “yes” (me) I need help with this – you have helped me with your wisdom. Will I apply it? Yes…I hope.

  2. Stacy,

    I heard you read at Urban ReThink Sunday night. I was blown away by the image of the curtains being washed in the lake. The entire reading was wonderful….simply wonderful.
