Your Sacred Yes: Sometimes the Wisest Yes is a No

Jul 28, 2015 / Family Living     

Life is demanding. Our calendars are packed. We know we should say “no” to more things. But it’s hard to determine what to say “no” to, and what to say “yes” to. So today, let’s figure out 3 things you should say ‘yes’ to. First, say ‘yes’ to rest. Save time to rest and refuel by not signing up for tons of extra things…even good things. Second, say ‘yes’ to humility. You don’t have to keep up with your friend or neighbor. Don’t do things just because others want you to. Stay focused on what’s best for you and your familyLastly, say ‘yes’ to necessary change. Decide today to make a change in your life and only say “yes” to those things that truly matter.
