This two-letter word is extremely powerful.
Do you feel it’s power? Is it so powerful of a word, that you have a hard time saying it?
I used to be that girl. That girl who said yes to please other people. That girl who said yes because she didn’t want to feel the guilt of saying no, for fear of disappointing. That girl who was getting burned out because she couldn’t learn to say the word “no”.
Do you feel like that? Do you suffer from “no-phobia”? This may be a new syndrome that you have not heard of before, but let me tell you, it is real and something to take seriously.
Learning the word “no” can effect every area of your life. So can the opposite – saying “yes”. It can even effect the clutter in your home.
How can a simple two letter word transform the clutter issue in your home?
2. Saying “yes” adds weight to your life and house. How much does your house weigh?
How much does your schedule “weigh”? Anytime you allow something into your home, it adds a calorie to the weight of your house. Anytime you say yes to something and add it to your schedule, it is another weight of something to do. Can you take the weight? Can your house take the weight? Once it’s on, just like pounds, they are MUCH harder to lose!
3. Say no to freebies, discount cards, 2 for 1 deals, club cards, etc. Let’s be honest. How often do you remember to use the discount card? How often do you really NEED the freebie? How often do you NEED the 2 for 1 deal? Are you taking it because it is a good deal? Why? Does a good deal make you feel good? Yes, it honestly does for me. BUT, I am learning that feeling good about a deal, doesn’t necessarily mean I should get an item. Don’t clutter your life with these “deals” if they aren’t something you would typically buy anyways.
Learn to say NO! It is worth it’s weight in gold! Say no to clutter in your house and in your schedule! Don’t let it overtake your home!
