Accepting.

Acceptance moves us. Beyond the status quo, beyond stuckness, beyond what is right now.

“Do you want to ________?” Yes. Absolutely. Definitely.

Of course, to be reasonable is to decline sometimes. And there is nothing wrong with that — in fact sometimes saying “no thanks” lets us reconnect and recharge in other ways. But there is a certain power in being unreasonable. In accepting more than declining.

It is not always restful. It is not always sustainable. But, in my experience, accepting an offer often leads to so much fun, to amazing memories, to a full life.
