Living out loud

EclectChick forwarded this to me. Whether you believe in God or not, it's a great affirmation!

God Says Yes to Me

I asked God if it was okay to be melodramatic
and she said yes
I asked her if it was okay to be short
and she said it sure is
I asked her if I could wear nail polish
or not wear nail polish
and she said honey
she calls me that sometimes
she said you can do just exactly
what you want to
Thanks God I said
And is it even okay if I don’t paragraph
my letters
Sweetcakes God said
who knows where she picked that up
what I’m telling you is
Yes Yes Yes

Kaylin Haught

As one of my favorite writers, Cheryl Richardson, says, 'What are you saying 'yes' to?'

I suddenly had a visual of this poem being altered to read (in each instance):

God/The Universe/my dog/Sponge Bob/other

Yeah, that wouldn't ruin the effect, would it? Har! Guess I'll just have to make the switch in my head, eh?

Sponge Bob would definitely say yes to whatever you say. He's so dang agreeable!
