Yes Man

NO MAS

I’ll Say ‘Yes’ To Almost Anything.

Couple classics:

Q.  How’d you like to mow my lawn, Mick?

A.  I love the smell of fresh cut grass …

Q.  Help me move this weekend, Mick?

A.  Thought you’d never ask …

AND THIS

Q.  Take me for a walk, Mick?

A.  Where’s the leash, Fido …

Q.  Another slice, Mick?

A.  Pizza’s not going to eat itself …

Q.  Cut my hair, Mick?

A.  Snip, snip …

I’m in.

Usually.

MY PROBLEM IS ME

I Can’t Say ‘No’ When I Should Say ‘No’ … 

This doesn’t qualify me for future Beatification.

Or, Citizen of the Millenia. 

It does, however, cause undue burden and promote guilt.

A nasty precursor to anxiety and regret.

Overextending myself to things I truly don’t want to do.

Conspiring against Self and better judgment.

FEAR

Of Disappointing Others.

My struggle.

Confrontation stresses me, so I tend to avoid it at any cost regardless of the outcome.

This hasn’t always been the case in My Fabulous Life.

Sidestepping common sense.

DISHONEST

Is What I’m Being.

To myself.

And, others.

Cowardice or Doubting?

SELF LOVE

Becomes An Early Casualty In Denying Self The Truth.

Truth is perhaps the greatest tenent of Spiritual Awareness.

Accepting it.

Living it.

Being it.

I’M NOT GOOD

With No.

Uh, uh.

“I’m the most reactionary person I know.”

Was

Was the most reactionary person.

But does every query, question, proposal … need an immediate and definitive, affirmative response?

WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?

Not The Guy Who Needs Something For Something.

Our world needn’t run on mandatory reciprocation if that’s what it takes to be benevolent.

To help others.

Unselfishness matters, but there is a limit.

A limit we should be cognizant of and committed to staying within.

TIME

Is All It Takes.

A moment.

To think and process.

Do I really want to do this?

Why am I doing this?

DECISIONS WE MAKE TODAY

Go Beyond The Moment.

What I was reminded of recently.

Obvious.  Simple.

How Truth works.

So, what’s missing in all of this?

Comprehension and Ownership of the Consequences.

Honoring Truth All The Way.

POST SCRIPT

I Don’t Cut Hair.

So, please don’t ask.

But, I will walk your dog.

Anytime.
