COUNTDOWN TO MY 50TH BIRTHDAY
“No” Is a Word
You have a right to your “NO” and your Reason, so use them | Countdown to my 50th Birthday | Day 15
Celebrate self | Take a “No” Day
Good Sunday Morning! Question for you? Did you know that “No” is a word? Of course, you did, everyone does but I often think that it is easy to forget that it is a word that we can use to manage our lives.
In keeping with the theme of day 16’s countdown that talks about knowing when to stop and breathe and take a break I am still doing just that. So, again this one is going to be short and sweet.
Sundays are usually my rest days. I often do not do much at all on Sundays but lately I have been operating as if it were a weekday, writing an article for Medium, starting my publication and even doing more housework or errands than usual on Sundays.
So today as the subtitle says: You have a right to your “NO” and your Reason, so use them! I know I am going to do exactly that: say “No” to writing a long article (even though I am up writing right now), “No” to doing anything else that feels like work, just “No”. Why? Because I can, and you should too!
Just know that when you say “No” you do not have to explain why to anyone unless you feel the need, but; do not let anyone make you feel obligated to explain yourself because you don’t have to.
With that said, enjoy this day or any other day that you choose to take as your rest day or “No” day and start fresh the next day.
