Saying No For Yourself

Sometimes when we work ourselves too hard, particularly as women, we suppress our needs for self care in order to not disappoint.

This evening I had to do just that.

I have worked 3 days in a row and now my body is just ready for a break. So NO, I will NOT be going to the class I’m supposed to be attending for work tomorrow.

I might be letting people down, annoying people or disappointing my boss –well, there’s nothing I can do but listen to my body and take care of myself. What is more important to me in the long term?

A : Healthy body

B: Annoyed person who probably won’t be my boss anymore in a year or 2?

Yep, common sense.

peace, love and chocolate!!
