Yield!

When the way is flat and dull in times of grey endurance,
May your imagination continue to evoke horizons.*

(John O’Donohue)

Sometimes we yield to others, giving up our needs or point of view for the sake of another.

Each of us must yield the produce or our lives, each fruitful in a different way.

These two meanings for yield are often connected, in that we have to give up our resistance to something before we can bring forth our best work.

What do you need to stop saying no to and what do you need to begin saying yes to?

(*From John O’Donohue’s To Bless the Space Between Us: For One Who Holds Power.)
