Sunday Sparkle

The holidays can get kinda crazy—especially when you’re being pulled in different directions. And if you’re a people pleaser, this can be totally stressful. That’s why it’s always important to keep this in mind.

If you don't want to do something, just say so. You're allowed.

If you don’t want to do something, just say so. You’re allowed to say no.

If you don’t want to go to a party, then don’t. If you don’t want to give someone a gift, then don’t. If you don’t want to do whatever it is that you want to do, then don’t. Even if it’s challenging at times, I have learned to just back away from the things I don’t want to do (you can feel it in your body anyway, so just listen). The benefits are worth it because you’ll live the life that YOU want to live—and you’ll free yourself from resentments, too.

Are you good at saying “no” to people? Or does the thought of doing so freak you out? Share your thoughts with me in the comments below! ♥
