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!
