Hello everyone! Welcome back to my blog.

January is almost over and I have already learned so much. In the last few weeks, I’ve learned to say “No” and not feel bad about it. Is that a bad thing? Absolutely not.

I don’t know how you guys feel, but learning to say “No” has been so freeing for me. Not only am I saying “No” but I am learning that I do not have to follow up with any kind of explanation at all. And it feel so good because I don’t owe and explanation about any of my decisions to anyone as long as I am okay with it.

I have always been the type of person that would do my all to help the next person out. I would burn myself out trying to always make others happy. That drove me to always putting others before myself and before my needs. I’m not saying that I am no longer helping others, I am just no longer going out my way to be there and do thing for people that wouldn’t do the same for me.

Some people have a way of making you feel bad for not doing something for them, when they want you to. And I no longer want that type of negativity in my life. So I’ve learned to say “No”, give no explanation and keep it moving.

Until next time…stay positive!

  1. I love that quote about how “no” is a complete sentence. I always feel obligated to provide reasons why I can’t or won’t do something, but you’ve given me a great reminder that I don’t always have to!

  2. “No” is absolutely a complete sentence and you should not feel bad for saying it without explanation! It is hard to say no but since I almost lost my marriage due to me working 60 + hours a week I have learned to say it more often. Healthcare work can suck you in sometimes.
