This is a quick one.
But not necessarily easy just because I want you to do it quickly.
I'm going to give 2 options of how to do this one. I have the theoretical approach which I think will yield some fabulous ideas. And I know that I, at times, would balk or alter that same idealistic approach.
The prompt: What I'd like is for you to quickly think of 8-10 things you feel you can't (or shouldn't) do, can't have, and so on. As each one comes to mind, don't write it down. Instead write down its opposite as a positive, "YES! I can/will do/get/have...".
My intent in not writing down the negative is to not give it any more power. Keep the power of the word on the positive; on the YES!
As an example, here is a short excerpt from Alexis Pauline Gumbs article, "Reclaiming Yes" at Utne Reader. This is a group created poem and there is much more to it on the original posting; it's worth the click.
YES!!! to acting on the impulse inside
YES!!! to defining the erotic as strength
YES!!!to claiming what we know deepest inside us as KNOWLEDGE
YES!!! brilliance remastered means brilliance unchained visible everywhere NOW!
YES!!! to our deepest desires
YES!!! to our power
YES!!! to being love
YES!!! to being me and not caring ...
The option: make a very quick list of the "can't"s and write out the positives.
Write your positives quickly, too, but feel free to expand and include more details.
