My heart is very full after spending last night with two of my dearest BFFs (aren’t they cute?). We could have talked through the whole night! Needless to say I was a bit tired this morning, but went full speed ahead into the day hosting an Essential Oils class with Marian Edvardsen.
It seems I’ve been in constant motion lately and am now getting ready to head to NYC for a five day training immersion.
A friend had generously agreed to come over this evening and help me prepare for the training. She’s a new friend and I also just really dig spending time with her,
When I saw her email confirming our plans I realized that as much as I REALLY want and need her help, what I really need right now, is a night at home and some quiet, stillness and time to regroup.
As I was debating what to do, feeling guilty about cancelling and rescheduling, I stumbled upon this week’s email for Allyson Spellman’s Self Worth Summer 30 Day Challenge. I’ve fallen way behind on this online challenge which I optimistically joined at the beginning of the month.
I flipped ahead to tomorrow’s affirmation and read:
“I will say yes to myself even if that mean saying no to others.”
It was exactly the message I needed to hear right now (even though it’s tomorrow’s message!). Turns out my friend was relieved too as she also has a very full plate right now.
I have to admit, choosing to say YES to myself today felt pretty awesome. I highly recommend it and am so glad I read ahead!
