Serenity Saturday – Motivational Minute 364

It’s Serenity Saturday!!

Today’s Motivational Minute is …

Just say NO! — That’s right it’s just that simple today.

Many times our level of stress and anxiety is increased because we don’t know how to say NO.  We keep piling things on top of each other and adding more and more to our plate without ever resting or taking time for ourselves.  If our creator was smart enough to rest on the 7th day after working for 6 days, then why on earth can’t we learn to rest.  Sometimes the only way you can rest and take time for yourself, is to say NO.  Self-Care is so important if you desire to be available for those you care about.  You can only give what you have and if you don’t have it, what are actually giving?

Take some time to put YOU first. 

Do something for YOU.

Take care of YOU. 


YOUR TURN… on this Serenity Saturday, tell me when you have had to say NO to others to say YES to yourself?  If you are having a hard time saying no, share why you have difficulty in this area.  What type of support would you need to be more proactive in your efforts to saying NO to others so you can say YES to yourself?

Share your thoughts in the comments section. I would love to hear from you. There may be someone who just might be blessed by what you share!

Here’s to you living life IN & On Purpose…
