Hey there! Tough love Kelly here with a very important announcement:
Just because you're a super talented, organized, very capable, can make anything work, and say yes to a lot of requests and opportunities kind of gal doesn’t mean you should!
We can’t help we were made pretty damn awesome and can juggle a lot in life without asking for much in return.
But you know what happens when you don’t course correct? You burn out, act out, become sad or depressed, feel frazzled, and become a shell of yourself.
And girl, life’s too damn short to think you need to stay in that cycle. Hell no!
People pleasing is what we’ve been taught to do to fit into society. It looks selfless yet you know what it really is? It’s just less-self.
Let me restate:
Just because you are very capable of saying yes and then juggling and bending to make it all work doesn’t mean you should!
Who are you? What are your passions? What are your boundaries? What do you want to say yes and no too? Why?
Thoughtfully answering these questions is key to a fulfilling and joyful life and guess what? Your relationships, all your relationships, actually work better when you’re honoring who you are and how you want to intentionally show up for your one precious life.
What will you intentionally say no to this week? Why? Comment below! Writing it down (and sharing it) is positive pressure to follow through.
