Quote of the day – Mary Manin Morrissey

“Even though you want
to move forward in your life,
you may have one foot
on the brakes.
In order to be free,
we must learn
how to let go.
Release the hurt.
Release the fear.
Refuse to entertain
your old pain.
The energy it takes
to hang onto the past
is holding you back
from a new life.
What is it you would
let go of today?”
– Mary Manin Morrissey

Just say ‘no’…


…if someone wants something that you cannot give – time, energy, brain power, emotional or physical help in your home or office, then just say ‘No’.

This reminds me of the cartoon my daughters love to watch on TV – Dibo the Gift Dragon. There’s a character called Annie and she’s a kind and helpful girl who loves to bake. There’s also a pink rabbit called Bunny who is vain and selfish. In one episod, Bunny said to an obviously exhausted Annie, “You know Annie, I just can’t stand it anymore. Everyone is stepping all over you. What you need is a makeover. You must learn how to say ‘no’ like me” So, Bunny became Annie’s teacher and she was coaching Annie to say “No, No, No until Annie sounds just like her…mean and selfish.

So, wait until you feel ready to give freely and then you will be much more helpful without damaging yourself.

Remember, you don’t need to juggle every ball or take on every project. Relax, your need to enjoy life and focus on all the good. You’ll be far more productive with far less anguish!
