Join the YES Revolution!
It is with absolute delight that I share today’s article with you!
Over the years I have had the opportunity to come to know and love the most incredible woman. I have watched her blossom into the most remarkable talent and a gentle soul.
A singer, songwriter and poet,she was there to write a song about the completion of my 7 year relationship with my college boyfriend. The way she captured the moment, the feelings, the love and the pain was remarkable, and every time I listened to it I would sob. Last summer she wrote a song for my wedding. After a thorough interview she went to work, and in the middle of our celebration, she sang our own hearts back to us.
She is a remarkable woman.
She is my sister. And today I will give you an excerpt from her new newsletter ‘Mews and Moos” (her company is Swimming tigress music and NotalotofBull Press – get it!).
Tiffany invites you to join the YES revolution!

A Plea for Yes
This is a request to all inhabitants of the earth.
Please, please start thinking yes instead of no.
There is so much focus in the media of late about the wars on terrorism, global warming and poverty just to name a few. Many people would contend that war is not the answer but this is how we deal with such situations in our society.
We wage war on them and this is precisely the reason why we are losing!
And the reason for this lack of progress? It is my belief that this could be attributed to two main factors. The first is the fact that it is generally more difficult to do something from a negative psychological place than from a positive one. When you are excited about something and see the potential joy in your action, don’t you feel you have more energy to carry out the task than when you are just doing something to avoid the opposite from happening? For a person who seeks to lose weight, do you think it is more motivating to be completely frustrated with their present appearance and to not wish to be like that anymore or to keep their eye on the lightness and increased energy they are going to experience in their new body?
The second contributing factor is based on the adage that “what we resist persists”.
When we claim the world is a dangerous, violent, scary and unhealthy place to be – even in the name of improving the situation – that is exactly what we will see more of. More danger, more violence. When someone on the news tells you that more women die of heart attacks than men or there is a 1 in 3 chance you will get cancer, what thoughts enter your consciousness? Exactly. You become filled with fear and all you can think about is the idea that you will likely die a horrible death before your time. The same goes for the reports with statistics claiming an increase in crime or other threats to safety. These are not hopeful visions conducive to a healthy body or mind.
Here is an everyday example: Have you ever had the situation where you are experiencing feelings of “I am always missing the bus” or “I can never find a parking spot” and you come across someone who claims not to have that problem at all? I have and I had the notion that this person might be sincerely deluding themselves because, well, everyone misses buses or has trouble finding parking on a frequent basis. But they may, in fact, have been right. And it is precisely because they don’t believe they have these problems that they do not exist.
|"The World is in Serious Need of Positivity"|
As a creative individual, I have often experienced crises of confidence. I tell myself that no one likes my work and why should I bother - all of that. But, you know, I firmly believe that, when I am having a good day and feeling like I do have something valuable to offer, the universe tends to agree with me. Little kudos begin to appear and the interest in my work increases. Coincidence? Perhaps, but, even so, isn’t believing in yourself and having faith in others a much more pleasant way of moving through life?
This is not to say that the challenges facing us today are to necessarily be ignored. But we can affect greater change when we view these challenges as things of the past rather than ever-present plagues. Because that’s precisely what they will continue to be.
Our world is in serious need of positivity on so many levels. If the nos are counterbalanced by the yeses there will be such beauty and hope as we have never known.
The Invitation: I urge you all to spend even a few moments every day contemplating the changes you wish to see in your life and in the environment around you in a positive light. Try using phrases like “I have” or “I see” instead of “I don’t want anymore of” or “I can’t stand” and watch what happens over time.
I would love to here about some of the changes you experiences after trying this approach, so feel free to contact me and I will share them with others.
Do not rage against that which do you not desire. Leap joyously towards that for which your heart truly longs. That is how miracles happen.
