You can say no.
You can leave the giant Zoom webinar if you’re bored. Or tap out of the group text if it makes you anxious. Or curb your news intake if you’re stressed.
You can say yes, too.
You can offer solutions before anyone arrives with a problem. Or keep showing up at your ‘desk’ even if you’re unsure why. Or move forward with an impossible idea, inch by inch by inch. Because what is impossible, really?
There will always be possibility. And with possibility comes a choice.
No or yes?
