Today is about looking at that time and energy that you have opened up by saying “no” to the things that you don't love so that you can say “yes” to the things you do. Every time you say “yes” to something, you're saying “no” to other things, so it's time to be intentional about what you want to say yes to. You’re final assignment today is to say “yes” to something fun!
Book a massage, go for a walk, meditate, take a yoga class, watch TV, hang out with your family, do whatever feels most fun, because this is really the point. The point isn't just to say “no” all the time because you can, although sometimes that is a fun practice, I will admit. The point is to say “yes” to the things that are most important to you, because this is your life. You get to decide how you want to spend it, and if we spend all of our time just trying to please others, we are left with nothing for ourselves. When you take time for yourself, and you take care of yourself, that's when you have energy to give to others.
Congratulations, I hope that this was so helpful for you. I'm so glad to be able to support you in this journey. As women, we are taught that we need to please others all the time and put others before us all the time, and that is not true. That is not how we need to live our lives. I say “no” all the time, and I have plenty of friends, and family, and people who love me.
Please let me know what you're saying “yes” to today after these four days of saying “no”. I hope your taking deep breaths. I hope that it all is really helpful for you, and please share on social media and use #saynotosayyes and tag me @airyfairyfeminist. Congratulations, my friends.
Keep an eye on your inbox for a special gift for completing the challenge!
