Sometimes you just have to say no. This past weekend was one of those times. We had a full schedule for the weekend and when we woke up Saturday we hit the floor running. Chuck was in a hurry to get a long a waited task completed and I was inside in a hurry to get the day started so we could leave and fulfill the busy schedule.
Chuck called to tell me he was on his way home from the steel run. We both had been thinking the same thing... sometimes you just need to say no. When you are on the go constantly nothing gets accomplished at home. It was decided that we would cancel our Saturday plans and it would be a say no kind of day.
That doesn't mean that we sat on the couch all day and did nothing. We were plenty busy.
Busy at home.
Busy at a slow pace.
Busy doing things that needed attention at home.
Busy doing things that were important to us.
Busy doing things for us and not the world.
Busy doing things that caused us to feel renewed and not drained.
Sometimes you just need to say no and go with slow. You know what? It really is okay to do this.
