the gentle art of saying 'no'

Saying 'no' needs to be the cornerstone of my emancipation.


I am not sure where I started saying 'yes' or why. But it is now a habit. A bad one.


I say yes when I have no time, I say yes for things I don't really want to do and I says yes to people I don't really want to work with.


So I get myself into a bind - I end up doing too many things at once because of my inability to say no. Which is where I am at the moment. But I am excited that last week I said no!


It was only a little thing, but I said no because I just didn't have time for it.


Usually I would have said yes and squashed it into my schedule.


Is anyone else like this? Who says yes more than no?
