The Word "No"

I really get irked by the word "no."

I really get irked by negative people whose first response to anything is "no."

What fun is that, I ask you? How miserable it must be to live inside such a bubble of fear and judgment that you cannot open your mind and heart to new experiences.

There are times when I am the proverbial pot calling the kettle black - even I have my limits. But for the most part, I'm pretty receptive to new ideas and opportunities.

On a daily basis I am exposed to one of the most negative people I have ever encountered, and it makes me really sad. This person has an amazing amount of passion, and a relative degree of talent, but cannot seem to build a bridge between the two because of their negative outlook.

I see this as a waste, really, but also as an inspiration to reach for my dreams, and to not wait for permission or direction from someone else.
