How saying 'No' saves the world
Wow, these last two week have flown by. While it wasn't crazy stressful, it seemed very full which is my first sign that I'm doing it again. I'm saying "yes". I'm compulsively agreeing to a variety of tasks and things that I don't want to do, in an attempt to appear helpful.
It's simple to fall back into the comfortable habit of agreeing to do this or to take care of that. It starts small and you feel like your really contributing but they're just "chores" and soon you're filled with resentment and frustration. That job you hate, those events you cant stand, those people... When you're doing things out of obligation, you take all the magic out of the moment for everyone involved. Do the world a favor and stop doing things that make you miserable.
Listen to your heart about how you want to feel and align with that; your heart will never lie to you. -TWEET THIS
I've been studying this idea of following your feelings and aligning with your truth from Danielle LaPorte. Check out this video and all her stuff! She's written an amazing resource, The Desire Map. I'm ordering it and will keep you posted on new insights I'm learning.
If you've already over-committed yourselves, make some time for yourself by changing your "yes, I can do that" to "I'm not sure, let me check." Give yourself a moment to really check with your priorities. How do you want to feel week? Rushed or Relaxed.
Want to feel better than you do now? I'll be launching my first Spring Cleaning Series soon. Details to come, let's feel good this year.

Go you! It's so fantastic when we are able to step back and realize that we have the CHOICE over all the actions of our lives. I used to spend too much time thinking that I HAD to do certain things. Then, off the sudden, my schedule was filled to the brim with things that I didn't feel passionate about or want to do. Realizing that we have a choice is such a brilliant thing. I'm going to choose love. :)
