Good Morning: Everything Happens for a Reason

“The big question is whether you are going to say a hearty “YES!” to your adventure.”
 ~Joseph Campbell
Brook’s addendum:
The big question is whether you are going to say a hearty “YES!” to your adventure–day after day after day.
We have all heard the cliche’s about being “high on life!” And how easy that is to do on a day when our stars align and our energy and goals flow almost effortless. It is easy to say “YES!” to our adventure on those smooth-flowing days. But we cannot get to where we want to be by only yielding to the easy. To reach our goals, to be our own personal best, we must say “YES!” even on the tough days, the challenging days, the -what-on-earth-am-I-doing-here-and-why- days.

For those of you who have children or are close to a child, here is an interesting way to view today’s message. Very often, we expect our children to “keep their chin up,” or “be strong in the face of adversity.” We place expectations on them to say “YES!” to life’s adventure day-in and day-out. But what are we doing? Are we living “YES!” lives or “maybe” lives? Are we living the challenge?

Your Turn:

Stop and say a heartfelt “YES!” welcoming whatever lessons life brings today -whether they be lessons you welcome or lessons you’d rather not learn


Everything happens for a reason. Just believe.
