In my quest for a simple life, I am starting in one area with the word No. I will add back as I see fit, for now, there is lots of "NO's".
NO, I am not going to follow your blog anymore. It is not pertinent to improving my life. In fact, I think it might be making me more frustrated as another thing to have to read/follow. It also may be creating a lack of contentment in me because you portray everything so perfect in your life, and somehow, I don't believe it is.
NO, I am not going to sign up for your emails/coupons, in fact I am going to unsubscribe from tons. If I need a coupon, I will look for it. If I haven't shopped your store in a year, I don't need your sales ads.
NO, I can't help you with that project. I have too many of my own unfinished and somehow that needs to be a priority to finish what I have started.
NO, I don't want to try this new diet. Yes, I want to loose weight, but not at the expense of buying into some makeover DREAM.
NO, I am not going shopping at this new fabulous store you found.
NO, I am not buying the latest book of my favorite author...I haven't read the last few that have come out.
NO, I am not going to check out this latest product that you think is a must have for me.
NO, I don't need that herb/medicine, I don't want a million more things to have around and I don't want to have to define if it "really works" for me.
NO, I am not reading this book you think I must read.
NO, I don't want your magazine.
NO, I am not making soap and other products from home, even though you think I should.
NO, I am not staying up late at your house even though you invited me over.
NO, I am not coming out to this function, I am exhausted.
NO, I am not. I said NO.
