Say “Yes!” To A

A Healthier “No!”

I hear myself say, “I am so busy!” and “I don’t have the time.”! Then I hear myself say, “I am bored.”, “I need change.” and “I want to be challenged.”!

I have multiple reasons and/or excuses as to why I say these things!

  • I think about that I am not busy and I do have the time. However, I just do not want to do something or spend my time doing it.
  • I think about if this is of interest to me and worth spending my time on it.
  • I think about the commitment and if I have the time to take it on.
  • I think about the certain things that are a waste of my time and my energy.
  • I think about if I get a choice or not in doing something.
  • I think about what inspires me to be creative.
  • I think about playing and having more fun.
  • I think about rest, relaxation and time to myself.
  • I think about needing to say, “No!” more.


Searching . . . Seeking . . . Discovering . . .

I will usually ask myself some questions!

  1. How do I make the most of my time?
  2. What is a waste of me and my time?
  3. What serves me and feeds me

I learned a valuable lesson recently! I usually prioritize my daily schedule and adjust as needed. However, I now find myself scheduling myself and my priorities instead! I feel pretty good when I get my top 3 to 4 things done throughout my day.

If yes, I go for it! If not, I politely decline and thank that person for thinking of me. If I am on the fence, I will take some time to make a decision before committing to a yes or a no. I do not want to commit to something and than not be committed. That is not fair!

I want and need to approach time in a way that is healthier and makes me happier! I think about what “stuff” is valuable or non-valuable to me. I think about what “stuff” is essential or non-essential to me.

I think about that day to day “stuff” that I need to do and weigh it against what I want to do, what I love to do! It is about finding that balance; working for an hour or two and then taking 5 minutes to do something for myself. I truly want to spend my time on “stuff” that is rewarding and satisfying as well as giving myself joy and contentment!

Making It

Positive Choices Every Day

How do you decide what is important and what is not when making decisions? Can you trust your gut and just go for it? What do you really want or need? Decision making is hard enough and then comes the conundrum of making a positive choice instead of a negative one!

Do you ever feel bombarded with the mixed messages coming your way on a daily basis? Oh the Pressure! There are times where you strive and/or struggle to make the right choice. Is there really a right choice or does your brain lead you to think there is?

Wants & Needs

 Imagine living the life you WANT! A life where the positive outweighs the negative. A life where you can be open to the possibilities instead of being sucked into the drama. A life that you enjoy and take pleasure in!

I either trust my gut and go for it or agonize over making a choice. Sometimes there is a medium. Choices come with responsibility and accountability as well as consequences and making mistakes. There has to be a balance, right!

Coming to Terms

How do you think in terms of choices in your life? Additions & Subtractions. Pros and Cons. Pluses and Minuses. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Sometimes I think in terms of what a waste of my time and energy and want nothing to do with it! Sometimes I think in terms of what goes around comes around. Sometimes I think in terms of pros and cons, especially if the choice I need to make is a difficult one. I want to make a difference not a choatic mess when it comes to making choices on a daily basis, especially the positive ones!

Here’s to Finding the Freedom to Make the Best Choice in Your Life!!!
