When to Say Yes or No

How many of you can relate? We say yes to something and then a few minutes or hours pass and we regret our decision. Not because we don’t like being helpful, but because we seem to overly schedule ourselves - which then leave us feeling exhausted.

I remember when I use to say yes to pretty much everything that was asked of me. I never wanted to let anyone down. I didn’t want to disappoint anyone. I would help others with what they needed and by the end of the day I was so exhausted that I would just fall into a trans in front of the tv or just go to bed.

Then it would happen all over again the next day and the day after that. There was never a time in the day where I was filling myself with what I needed. I wasn’t eating well or working out because I was always rushing out the door. I wasn’t taking time to do my devotions in the evening because I was too tired.

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE helping others and I believe we were created to love and serve other people. BUT, there is a time and a place to say yes and to say no.

One day all that changed. I learned about setting a morning routine and what that routine will look like for me. Having a morning routine eased me into my day and I was able to set my intentions for the day. I spent quality time in my Bible, I read and speak my daily affirmations, I pray and I use lots and lots of oils! I also started doing Yoga - wow my joints and muscles have been so thankful for that!

Having a morning routine allowed me to take care of myself first so that I can then take care of others in a more relaxed way. I wasn’t rushing from one task to the next. Everything happened with ease now.

This is what I will be sharing more of in our 5 Day Self-Care Reset and I’ll be going more in depth on creating your own morning routine in my upcoming Restore Your Hope e-course (launching September 2020). I’m so excited because I feel like many women will benefit greatly from this!

We are such strong and wonderful women. You all have hearts of gold and love those in your circle. I want to make sure you are taking care of yourself so that you can then fully, 100% pour into others!
