Need a reminder to say NO. Print this and throw it up on the fridge.
Today I posted this on our Becoming UnBusy Facebook page. <— This is our sister-site. We share tips about becoming unbusy with the community there and share our personal journey toward an unbusy family life here on Lasso the Moon!
It's okay to say ....
NO, if you don't want to do it.
NO, if you're already overscheduled.
NO, if you don't have the time.
NO, if you feel forced to say "yes."
NO, if it doesn't make you happy.
NO, if you'd rather relax.
It's okay to say no.
The comments that came immediately rolling...
Thank for the reminder!
A lesson I need to learn.
Tattooing this to the inside of my eyelids.
I need to read this every morning.
Just what I needed to hear today!
This is the comment that made me smile:
That is going to be me this year at school.
Starting Sept. 5th. NO. NO. NO.
I feel like this is a message that moms especially need to hear is that it is okay to say no.
A friendly reminder that "doing your best" does not mean working yourself to the point of a nervous breakdown.
Then I saw this comment ...
I struggle so badly with this.
I knew I had to use my design skills to whip up a quick printer-friendly copy of this quote for fellow moms to hang on their fridges.
Know a friend that needs to hear this too? Print her a copy as well.
Take care of you, my dear.
