So, how was your Thanksgiving holiday? I hope that it was delightful and that you and your loved ones enjoyed it completely. We had a fun filled day. My family hadn't been all together in over 22 months...so it was a day of celebration, reconnecting, and tons of laughter.
But I actually had a much deeper reason for asking. What I really want to know is...
Was it peaceful and relaxing, and filled with joy?
Or was it stressful, chaotic, and drama-filled?
It's interesting because we all had one experience or the other...peaceful or stressful. And some of us had different experiences at the same event!
I recently came across a quote that shed light on this interesting phenomenon:
Doing something you don't love is experienced as stress.
This is so true! And it explains the difference in people's experience perfectly!
There are those people that say yes to everything...even the things they don't enjoy or even want to do. They end up feeling stressed and overwhelmed, and perhaps even a little resentful of the people having fun and enjoying themselves.
Then there are the people who only say yes to the things they love and enjoy doing...which is the exact reason that they are so peaceful and enjoying life to the fullest.
So how do you move from Team Stress to Team Peace? Easy! By learning how to say no.
You get to master saying yes only to those things that you love and enjoy this holiday season. And the best way to figure out what your true yes's are is to allow yourself permission to experience saying no. Hopefully this week's challenge of being on a No Diet will help you find the peace that lies in speaking your truth.
Your spirit just wants for you to be happy but to do that you must listen to the guidance it is always providing for you. I have some great classes that can support you with that and I invite you to sign up here for free.
