The Power of Saying No....

Sunday, April 01, 2012

I gotta tap into this power. LOL I've found myself overwhelmed lately and it's because I simply don't have control over MY life...which is silly. It's be one thing if God had control, but alas, it's not Him.

So this month, I WILL say no. It's ok, and we shouldn't feel obligated to say yes whenever we're asked to do something. If we agree to help out with everything, then we ended up missing out on ENJOYING everything. Plus... when we say yes, we may prevent the person who SHOULD be in the role, from doing what they're called to do!!!!

    I totally agree...although, can I ask you to do one thing?? Wait, better not - you might just say yes! emoticon

    Hang in there you and balance will come in your life as you learn you cannot take on everything.

    I know exactly how you feel. People make it almost impossible for you to say anything but yes, even though you don't want to. Then afterwards you feel angry at them for putting you in that situation and with yourself for giving in. Good Luck, you can do it! Here, let's practice:

    no
    No
    NO
    N-O

    Amen! I say YES way too often, especially in my home/family life. I'm spread way too thin way too often. Now isn't that a great expression, to be spread thin? No one ever says "I'm spread fat!"
