Do we learn more from the YES’s or from the NO’s? (and for those who struggle with words that end in S, the Oxford Dictionary refrains from talking about a plural form of Yes. And the Webster’s Dictionary says go with yeses or yesses. But I just can’t. #rebel).
So yes or no.
A yes is always easier to hear. Don’t you think? I mean, if we’re askinnnnng..we’d kinda like to get a yes? And when that ‘no’ comes back. We’re hurt. We get mad. ‘Why’!?, we say. What NOW??
Maybe instead of the ‘what now?’ which is kind of a demanding, stamp your foot kind of thing..we should say, “what’s next”!? Call me crazy, but with every NO I’ve ever been told..my life has not ended. I didn’t cease to exist. It didn’t mortally wound me. The NO led me down another path. One I’m pretty certain I would not have taken if given the yes.
No’s are not always the end, beloved. Quite often, they can lead to our brightest beginnings.💕
