When you say no to something…

you are saying yes to something else. This was something I read today, and it really hit home. I think sometimes I let things that I feel like need to be done get in the way of the things I want to focus on in my life; family, friends, myself!

From now on, I want to say yes to more things that are important in my life, and no to those that are less important.

So yes, boys, I will read you a story. No, laundry, you can wait.

Yes, my baby, I will rock you. No, telephone, the answering machine can take it.

Yes, my body. You are exhausted, and I will rest. No, work, you can wait.

I feel enlightened by this new way of thinking. I only hope to actually apply it!
