Now that I have decluttered my stuff and life, I find that I do in fact have more time to say yes.
- Yes, I can meet you for a walk.
- Yes, let’s watch a movie.
- Yes, let’s go for a bike ride.
- Yes, to reading a book.
- Yes, to myself.
- Yes, to my family.
- Yes, to my friends.
However, I still struggle and have to catch myself defaulting with “no, I have blah blah blah to do.”
I am an introvert so in reality I do not want to say yes to everything. Instead I am working to have the default response be “give me a minute to think about what is going on.” Then I can make a mindful and meaningful decision.
I always say yes to family snuggles!
