It’s hard to say no. This is a lesson I struggle with, and I know so many close to me struggle with it, as well. I take on so much stuff…so many responsibilities, and I’ve begun to realize in my life that I need to make a concerted effort to schedule chunks of time in my week with absolutely nothing to do. It is essential for my sanity.
So, please forgive me if I have to say “no” to you. I swear…it’s the hardest word in the world to say especially if you’re like me and want to make everyone happy.
My song of the day is pretty off topic today. It’s Amy Winehouse (Man…I miss her!) singing about “Rehab.” I hear her voice chanting, “No! No! No!” over and over again in my head. In this case, I wish she would have said, “Yes! Yes! Yes!” Despite it, it’s a great song, and I love bringing it back for the day in order to use her excessive “No-ing.” Click HERE to go to Youtube and enjoy! I hope it helps you, too, to say the word “no” when you need to.
