Just Say No! Really Nancy Reagan was on to something... just barking up the wrong tree I guess. My mantra is Just Say No to those placing obligations upon me. Every item will be evaluated against my priorities.. only those the contribute directly to either my family's health & well-being (to include learning objectives) will be approved.
This is a challenge for me. I tend to be the 'yes' girl and burn myself out. Not this year though!!! Just Say No to time sucking (joy sucking) obligations!! BTW - Faith building obligations to include service to my parish and other faith community members DOES directly contribute to health & well-being and therefore cannot be shirked... just in case you are wondering ;o)
