“Yes” to Something is “No” to Something Else

This is the time of year when we’re asked by ourselves and others to be and do more.  More with our time, energy, money, calories or miles.  Remembering that saying “yes” to those requests is saying “no” to something else – very important.  We could end up playing our feelings of opposites against each other: joy or guilt, abundance or lack, patience or anger, celebration or resentment. And it all depends on how we see and make our decision.

Paying close attention to our feelings during this holiday of “yes” or “no” is key to making the right choice.  Saying “no” to personal conflict or overextension (time, energy, money, calories, miles) means saying “yes” to our physical and emotional health and balance.

Giving our personal well-being our first priority and “yes” this holiday season keeps us relaxed, appreciating and partying.  Each moment then becomes a celebration – which is what this season is all about.  And here’s a bonus:  That celebration gives others permission to revel in their well-being too.

“Yes” – the gift that keeps on giving.  Merry “Yes,” everyone.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always.” – Ghandi
