After the Yes...

A few months ago I posted about "The Say Yes Challenge." It started as a challenge on FB, then became a blog about saying yes...and now here I am talking about...wait for it, the No, saying No. 

Kenny Rogers said it best:  "You've got to know when to hold, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run."

Sometimes after all the yes's there comes a time when a 'no' is needed. 

What does life after the yes look like? Does it even exist? 

If you are a person that tends towards yes, then saying No becomes the growth opportunity. If you are a person that tends towards No, then saying yes becomes the growth opportunity. Somewhere in the 'middle' is perhaps the real opportunity, yes?

So here is the next step:  are you saying yes? How's it feeling? Are you saying yes for the sake of saying yes when perhaps the answer needs to be a no? Are you working from a place of saying yes to anything without utilizing your power of discernment?

New Challenge:  saying yes when it feels good/looks good, saying no when it feels good/looks good and finding your balance in it all.

As we do.
