The Art of Saying No
Two measly letters, just one syllable. It's such a simple yet powerful word - but I find myself always having a hard time using it. I always have this incredible guilt trip because I never want to disappoint anyone. So my first response is to say yes....to everything that comes my way. Then I find myself consumed with more than I can handle which just leads to dreaded anxiety. So the other day, I (gulp) put my foot down and said no to something. You know what? It felt pretty darn good, almost freeing! It was like this huge weight had been lifted off my shoulders when I said it. I know it's going to continue to be a challenge for me to say it....but I feel like I've taken a step in the right direction!
