Are you feeling overwhelmed? Struggling with a life that is full and overflowing? Harassed with overlapping appointments and unachievable schedules? Do you wish you could simplify your life?
Ruth Amos shares her journey through a year where she learned about saying no, saying yes, and bringing some balance and joy back into her overfull existence. She hopes that you will also find peace through lessons she has learned, such as:
- How to create a time budget and know what to put in and what to leave out
- When it is right to say no to a worthwhile activity, and when it is better to say yes to something uncomfortable
- How to tell if you’re just being lazy, when to push yourself, and when it is better to rest
‘No is a strong word, and easy to hear in the wrong way. But as a parent I have learnt that saying no to others gives me the freedom to say yes to those who I care most about… myself, my husband, and our two girls. There are opportunities to say yes to others in the coming years, but saying yes now to them means saying no to us. I don’t sit comfortably with the thought of the four of us missing out, as many opportunities won’t present themselves again.’ Anna McGowen
