30 Things To Say No To Without Feel Like A Jerk
Between servicing clients, attracting clients, taking care of the home, the kids, the laundry, the dishes, the dog, the homework on and on and on and on I go, OH MAN life is full. It's not easy balancing work and family. If you're going to keep your sanity, something has to give.
Oh man - my life is full.
Yeah, yeah I am grateful and blessed and sooo thankful for all of the things I have in my life but
OH MAN, my life is full.
Between servicing my clients, attracting new clients, taking care of my home, my kids, the laundry, the dishes, the dog, the homework on and on and on and on I go, OH MAN my life is full.
And I know I am not alone with this one.
This past year I declared it as the "THIS IS MY YEAR" year and I'm not going to lie. As good as it has been, it's been tough too.
I have my eyeballs filled to brims with commitments.
And then I just broke.
I am not going to Costco every week.
I am not going to the grocery store every day.
I am not doing laundry all the time. The girls have enough clothes that, yes, that can pile up and they can wear what they don't wear. (SHOCKING, I know.)
There is no need for me run around and bust my butt for these silly things.
I don't want to be in the grocery store every day.
And when I started to say NO, guess what happened. I didn't need to do these things that often anyway.
Guess what. We survived not going to Costco. We have eaten pretty fine without me stopping in the Grocery store every day.
We are just fine. Actually, we are doing great.
And then I was talking with others and they needed to say no too. So I created a list. You can print it. You can print your favorites only. You can take one or two a day.
You can say NO without feeling like a jerk and get control back.
