Knowing When to Say No


Learn to say ‘no’ to the good so you can say ‘yes’ to the best. 

~ John C. Maxwell


Recently, I returned from a magnificent retreat with amazing beings who collectively are changing the world for the better. It was time of healing, rejuvenation and going within to understand more about my journey. One of my revelations was how busy I am and filled my schedule is. Does that sound familiar? I think I heard a bunch of “Heck yeah’s!”.

One of the ways this happens in our life is the taking on of projects, responsibilities and obligations.  I know I get excited by something new and the vision of what that would look like when its done. However, when I feel overwhelmed all I need to do is look at my schedule and that will tell me all I need to know. What have I committed to? Does it serve me and my vision? Does it fulfill me? Do I have the time and energy to bring my passion to this endeavor? These are questions I ask myself when deciding to commit myself to something new. I have also begun to use this inquiry on the commitments already in my life. Not only are the answers important but the feelings that comes with them.


This is a great way of checking in with yourself when someone or something is calling you. Knowing when to say no can be especially challenging for those going through or recovering from divorce.  Choosing self-care over worrying about what others say or think about your decision may not be easy during these times.  Believe me, I know this having gone through a stressful divorce myself.  By understanding what serves you and brings joy and fulfillment to your life and the world, you begin to gravitate towards things to say “Yes” to. This process of going within can also prompt you to know when to say “No”. I invite you to try this way of living and see and feel how much easier it is to say “Yes” and “No” to guide you from a place of pain to the peace you desire. !n-joy!  Namaste
