I heard something beautiful while getting ready for Faire yesterday. “Yes, And.” This is the motto of Amy Poehler’s improve group. The idea is that you accept whatever comes at you and instead of fighting it, say “Yes” to it. But you don't just leave it there. Then comes the, “And.” You come back with something of value as well.
Accept what you’re given and then give gift of your own. A principle worth embracing, right? Thank you Amy Poehler.
