When you are wanting to have a balanced life. When you are wanting to not have overwhelm and to just have harmony in your life which is the goal of being an elegant warrior, it is okay to say no.
It is totally okay.
As women, we are naturally people pleasers. We want to say yes to everything because it’s in our nature to want to make the people around us happy, to take care of people. But if you say yes to every single request then you are going to be depleted, exhausted, and burned-out.
The goal is to be balanced, beautiful and abundant.
If somebody asks you for something and if it doesn’t light you up, if it is not a resounding yes or a hell yes, walk away! Saying No might be the ultimate self-care.
Walk away from hell maybe’s and obviously walk away from hell no’s.
Unless something is really a full-bodied yes, then you don’t have to do it. It’s okay to decline and say no.
It’s okay to change your mind, too. You can change your mind anyday, anytime. If it doesn’t serve you anymore. It’s okay to reschedule an appointment you once said yes to.
Don’t worry if you want to say NO to something you’ve said YES to. It is perfectly fine.
It is also important to say NO while maintaining relationships. It creates healthy boundaries and it gives clarity on what people can expect from you.
If it’s not a hell yes, it’s a hell no.
If it doesn’t light you up, say no
