Say Yes To Life Today!


Happy Friday, Bravehearted Beauties! I only have a few minutes before I chaperone a field trip to Carnton Plantation, but there’s something stirring in my heart for you this morning, so I just have to speak it:

S A Y   Y E S   T O   L I F E   T O D A Y !

When we say yes to life, something shifts inside. Darkness scatters, light breaks through, joy is released, beauty rises, healing happens. I’m convinced that much of my emotional and physical healing over the last few years has come from saying yes to life. {It started here in 2010.} I have to fight for that yes sometimes, but it’s always worth it! The more I say yes to life, the more alive and well I feel.


This is Buddy’s “yes” to life!

Let’s say YES TO LIFE today! Say yes out loud, say yes in your spirit, say yes with a spontaneous decision, say yes when someone speaks something kind and encouraging over you, say yes to being still or being on fire, say yes to glimpses of glory in everyday life, say yes to beauty in brokenness, say yes to people over projects, say yes to playfulness and messiness, say yes to that dream that keeps tugging at your heart, say yes to the Bravehearted Beauty inside of you, say yes to the truest things about you {who God says you are}, say yes to anything that makes you come alive!

How will you say yes to life today?

  • Traci Keel - You are so right. I’ve spent the better part of this year liberating myself from the prisons I’ve put myself in. At first I believed that would mean saying no to so many things that needed to be pruned from my daily life, but it turns out that saying yes to things that matter is how we prune the things that don’t. LOVE this.ReplyCancel

  • Amy Avery - Oh how I love how your words are filled with so much love and LIFE! YES! I will say yes to life by going and reading at my daughter’s school this afternoon even though I am not feeling well today (nothing contagious 🙂 ) And I will have a happy heart in doing so! Thank you Linsey for this wonderful post today!ReplyCancel

    • Bravehearted Beauty - That’s a good yes, Amy. I spent so many years not feeling well and not saying yes. (Half living.) It wasn’t until I started saying yes to life that my healing really began. So yes to reading to children today and yes to feeling better!ReplyCancel
