This post was supposed to be about saying NO! After all, if you’re a working mom, the word no probably isn’t in your vocabulary. Most of us need to draw some serious boundaries.
So why on earth am I writing a post about saying yes?
It’s simple. We need to start saying yes first. We need to start saying yes to the things that are really important.
Ok, maybe it’s a bit more complicated than it sounds. I’ll admit, I really don’t have this whole yes/no thing figured out. But I do know that I’ve probably had it backwards. And I don’t think I’m alone.
Most weeks, I let my schedule fill up with lots of “stuff.” Most of this stuff is good -- ranging from work, school, activities, exercise – but at the end of the week I find myself asking, What did I really accomplish?
I’m not suggesting that my daily routine isn’t productive or worthy of my time. I am suggesting it’s not always intentional.
And this holiday season – when my schedule typically blazes out of control – I want to be intentional. So, how does this translate into saying yes?
