An expansive little word

I’ve been thinking about a three letter word this week and realise just how much I use it, often at the end of a sentence.

I find it helpful in quieting the negative voice/s in my head.

The little word is “yet”, used as an adverb. “I haven’t written that blog post……..pause and insert “yet.”

Yet can mean “up to the present time, thus far” and I think this offers a great sense of hope, possibility, potential, choice and opportunity. It can relieve pressure, increase a sense of empowerment, capability and capacity, encourage wider thinking or creativity and let our clever brains get to work in a way that supports us instead of beating us down.

A photo of “yet” seemed a little trickier to capture but maybe this pile of wind gathered autumn leaves says “it is autumn here but not yet winter” and thus far the temperature here today bears that out.
