No, Thank You


The older I get the more I realize that saying “no” is one of the most positive and liberating things you can do to create the life you want. While “yes” most certainly has its value, it is in what you choose not to allow or to do that opens more room for bringing in what you do want. In a way it’s like clearing clutter out of a room so you can decorate it how you’d like and then having the space to enjoy it.

This ability to say no goes along with a very common theme I see for many of my clients; the installing of proper boundaries. When you turn down something because it isn’t in your best interest, or it conflicts with something you’d rather do, you’re taking charge and giving yourself a more balanced life. Saying no can be difficult for some who’ve been brought up to be people-pleasers, but as the old song Garden Party by Rick Nelson says, “You can’t please everyone, so you’ve got to please yourself”. I’m not promoting egocentric behavior, just trying to drive the point that you’ll quickly burn yourself out if you try to make everyone else happy. It’s a pretty impossible task.

So what can you let go of that’s no longer serving you? Whether you can create an instantaneous shift or release it over time, aren’t you, your time, and your sanity worth it?

With Love.

From Over There:
“It is as important the things in which you choose as in what you do not choose. Bring that which gives you joy into focus and let the gaze soften upon the mundane. To focus on that which brings you joy is to bring value to life. Is to bring respect for the self.  Opening to your dreams and desires is the path to liberation and freedom. Within this path the mundane tasks become more manageable and less dull. To live life on your chosen path – with joy the ultimate goal – will provide inspiration to remain on path and to a life fulfilled.”
