No way!

It is okay to say no. Sometimes it is much easier to say “no freaking way” than to say “yes, please!”.

Tough decisions have been much more common the past couple of years. Decisions about health, decisions about the cats, decisions about facing the future alone.

Last week, I was faced with one of those rare easy decisions.

So easy, I wondered if I did not quite cover all the bases. I shuffled through all the other decisions already made for the future. I consulted a few others who saw both sides of the story. In the end, I still knew what was best for me and for the other parties involved.

I needed this to be easy. I want to move ahead towards future plans, instead of taking a detour down a well-worn path. I wanted to say “no”.

So I did.

(How empowering one little word can be.)
