It is a new year today.
It is pushed upon us to be looking ahead, brightly, hopefully, and to set visions, plans, and intentions, resolute and serious, of doing and being better.
I sit here now and what rises from my depths is a resounding no.
That no belongs to me. I alone claim it.
Maybe you have a no rising as you read this.
My no tells me I do not have to do more, prove anything, or start out sprinting into this year towards a phantom finish line. I can be here in this day and claim my enoughness.
I do not need to be more or better than I am right now.
When I fully claim that, what rises from my depths is a resounding yes.
