Since adding this fun day, Make Up Your Own Holiday, into my marketing calendar, I’ve been thinking what holiday would I create. There were a few contenders – minimalist day, prioritize your marriage day, say no to downgrading marriage entertainment day (this would be movies that make light of marriage and/or make you cheer for a spouse to cheat or leave).
But at the end of the day, saying no has been a big thing in my life and I want to champion it.
I think the biggest hurdle in saying no is the guilt and judgement you face. Society wants us to say yes to everything, people want us to say yes to them, it’s hard to understand when someone says no, especially if saying no is drastic. I know this is the hardest part of me saying no to different things. I say no for lots of reasons to lots of things. Some of them are very very painful.
At the heart of saying no to things is taking care of yourself. We are our biggest resource and we are a limited resource. If you don’t say no to things, you will use up your resource. You cannot work 24/7 forever. You cannot stay awake forever. You cannot play that game forever. You cannot help others all the time forever.
By saying no, I protect myself, our marriage, and our businesses.
