It’s Okay To Say No

Good Morning Most Awesome and Wonderful World Changers! The hardest word for me to say is no. Especially when it’s things I like to do, like playing the piano at church or directing the choir. Or if it’s someone that I care for, I almost never say no. However, as I have gotten older and started learning to love myself, I have learned that it’s okay to say no. It’s better to say no than to bog yourself down with everybody else’s stuff. It’s hard to get any of your own work done when you are always doing for others. So I’ve learned to say no. I’m about 60% able to say no now. I’m going to keep working on it. I was listening to Les Brown and he quoted Og Mandino, and really made me think of the time I wasted being a yes man. It’s okay to say no.

Daily Affirmations: Today is a magnificent day. I choose to feel good about myself. It’s okay to speak up for myself. I love and approve of myself. I’m wealthy, healthy, whole, and complete. ALL IS WELL IN MY CLASSROOM. ALL IS WELL IN MY SCHOOL. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. ALL IS WELL AND I AM SAFE. #IBlessMySchoolWithLove #IBlessMyWorldWithLove
