A closed fist or an open hand?

I love how Sarah uses the image of receiving life either with closed fists ready to fight or open hands ready to receive. I think sometimes its painful to have an open hand to life but we learn so much more that way. When we are always defensive looking for a fight, sure we might avoid a little pain, but we also scare away the peace and the joy. What would you receive from life if you got all that it had for you? What are you missing out on because your hand isn’t open to receive it?
