Notebook Challenge: Just Say No!
Is the Christmas season stressful for you because you have so many events and not enough time? Many years ago, one of my closest friends, Darla, told me to learn to say no to many of the requests of my time during the year. I laughed! Well as the years have gone on, her words of wisdom have stayed in the back of my mind, and slowly I have quit laughing and started saying no, especially during the Christmas season. I challenge you to use your calendar to examine the events you already have planned before you say yes to additional activities, making sure adding something else to do on a particular day or week will not put more stress on the Christmas season for you. You can say no. It will be ok! Mark off days around events that you need for recuperation time with a big RED X!
