It's Monday and It's Time to Live a Little! Learn the Power of Saying, "No" to Yes

Is Your Plate too Full to Live a Little? 
It's Time to Find the Power in Learning to Say, "No" to Yes

If you are anything like me, you love to get the most out of life by volunteering.  I volunteer to pick up food for the teacher luncheons, I volunteer to take kids home from this practice or that event, I volunteer to wrap all 700 of the books for the elementary school kids and so on and so forth.

We all lead busy lives and our metaphorical "plates" are very full right?

And we love it because having a full plate in life means living a full and interesting life.  But today I want to urge you to find the power in learning to say, "No" to Yes in order to Live a Little. 

Learning to say, "No" to Yes can free you up to Live a Little

Here at Environmental Booty we are all about finding the treasure in living green through self, people and planet.  Living a green lifestyle means that you not only take into account environmental sustainability but human sustainability as well. 

How are you sustaining these days???

Okay so if you are feeling on the verge of a mental breakdown from too much Yes, it is time to find the power in saying, "No" and Live a Little!

Are you taking time for yourself and the things that really matter to you?  Are you giving your family as much of yourself as you would like to or are other commitments getting in the way?  Are you giving yourself the necessary time to nourish your body and your soul?  If not, it is time to clear some space on your calender for the things that matter most to you in order to Live a Little right now.

We certainly need to utilize the power of saying, "Yes" to the many calls for help from our friends and community.  It feels good to make a difference through giving of your time.  But knowing when to say, "No" to that oftentimes too easy answer of "Yes", will empower you up to Live a Little now and it might save you a big mess to clean up later down the line.

Because knowing when your metaphorical plate is full, before it overflows and spills all over the floor and makes a mess just might free you from having a broken relationship, a debilitating illness, a child who barely knows you, a friend who doesn't admire you or a person staring back at you in the mirror that you don't even recognize anymore. 

Learn to say,"No" to Yes today because you deserve to Live a Little starting right now.
