2 letter word. Worth reading for bring back smiles…

One of the hardest things to do in life is to say โ€œNo.โ€ To invitations, to requests, to obligations, to the
stuff that everyone else is doing. Even harder is saying no to certain time-consuming emotions:
anger, excitement, distraction, obsession, lust. None of these impulses feels like a big deal by itself, but run amok, they become a commitment like anything else.
If youโ€™re not careful, these are precisely the impositions that will overwhelm and consume your life.

Do you ever wonder how you can get some of your time back, how you can feel less busy? Start by
learning the power of โ€œNo!โ€โ€”as in โ€œNo, thank you,โ€ and โ€œNo, Iโ€™m not going to get caught up in that,โ€ and
โ€œNo, I just canโ€™t right now.โ€ It may hurt some feelings. It may turn people off. It may take some hard
work.But the more you say no to the things that donโ€™t matter, the more you can say yes to the things that do.
This will let you live and enjoy your lifeโ€”the life that you want.
