You can only say “no” too many times before people stop asking you to be a part of something. I understand too well that saying “yes” too many times can deplete your mind, body and soul. Saying “no” frequently means giving up possible opportunities that can change your life and the lives of others.
The solution could be prioritizing ones life so that there can be some balance but even then its easy to decline instead of accept. Professionally you have to say yes every now and then to indicate you still have interest in growth and advancement in your chosen field. Personally it means giving value to relationships of family and friends that you want to be a part of their lives. Just saying “no” just to say “no” out of habit can be a problem for you down the road.
It takes courage either way to say yes and to say no. You just have to figure out what means more to you.
Blog openly and freely without abandon!
Today I went through quite a few blogs and decided to un-follow some inactive sites. This was nothing personal but just a function of housekeeping and freeing up space for active bloggers.
My criterion was if they haven’t blogged in 3 months or more I un-followed them. If you are like me you see a cool blogger and wanna follow them but sometimes it can be way to many blogs to look at and to manage.
I understand that it can go both ways and someone would be ready to kick me to the curb and that is fair. I pretty much blog every day and multiple times a day so there have been people who have said they can’t keep up. It’s all good. Thanks to each of you who follow me and who make blogging an important part of your daily ritual. Keep on blogging!
Blogging meaning the reading and writing of blog posts can lower your blood pressure and help you release genuine feelings and emotions in a safer environment than other places. Also the connection with people who you are meeting for the first time is also fun!
We are all looking for that place and space to find success. There is an old saying that you can bloom where you are planted however there are times when a change of location can make all the difference. To Flourish takes skill, talent and a little luck. Being affirmed in your life and work can go a long way into helping you flourish in all the ways of your life. Finding an opportunity to succeed can give your life added meaning and can give you purpose. Flourish where you can and do your best at whatever your life’s calling is.
The weekend is done and Monday has begun. Oh well, let’s take care of business and do the best we can. I hope you all have the best day possible. Hang in there, this too shall pass. Rock on or something like that.
