Aloha Friday

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you would like to play visit Kailani

Are you a "yes" or "no" person?

I would love to say that I am a NO person in a way, because I am always saying yes, when I should probably say NO. I will say I have gotten better this year at saying "NO" for the sake of my family, and my sanity.

My first instinct is to say No so I'm trying to work on it. Don't know why I want to say No though. Maybe it's having kids spread 5 yrs apart & feeling like all I ever did was say No? lol

I'm very much a No person. If I wasn't, I'd never have enough time for anything.

I have been a Yes person, almost my whole 49 years of life! Just recently I have been trying to say No so that I can have more time for my family and myself.

I used to think that saying no was selfish, me not sharing my talents, but it is selfish to say yes all the time. It was selfish of me not sharing my talents with my own family! Tough lesson learned, but learned!

What an awesome question. Thanks for asking.

PS. My kids are 11 and 14. I still have plenty of time to apply lesson learned and say No to others and Yes to them!!!!

Oh my gosh..I used to totally be a "yes" person, but I learned the hard way that it's okay to say no!!! :)

Oh..and I don't mean I learned it the hard way, like in a bad way, but for example, saying "yes" to babysitting someones kids but not praying about it first. Stuff like that! LOL
