It's Okay to Say No

February 1, 2016

Let's face it, the whole world revolves around time. We schedule everything according to how much time we have in our day. Some of us plan a whole lot of things during the day that would eventually leave us with only 4 hours of sleep at night. We would do this for every single day until we give up and face the truth. We can't. Handle Everything. 

Why do we put so much on our plate when we know that we can't handle it? Why do we go on agreeing to things that we aren't really into? Why do we think that we can do everything but we really can't because it's just too much? 

I believe that it's just how we sometimes are. We subconsciously take on so many projects and so many extracurricular activities because what if these things won't be here tomorrow? And here comes that phrase that everyone hates, You Only Life Once (YOLO). It's inevitable, this phrase not only has become viral, but it also speaks the truth. Some of us subconsciously think "yolo" and accept the challenges and projects in front of them when in reality they don't really need to. 

Some of the things that we take on don't really need to be taken on. We don't have to sign up for every workshop out there or say yes to every client that emails you. It's okay to say no sometimes. We're only human. We can't reprogram ourselves to work like mindless robots because we aren't. We get tired, exhausted, anxious, and we crave for a weekend out once in a while.

So, it's okay to let things go sometimes. It's okay to say "I'm sorry, I'm swamped all week.". And it's okay to admit to yourself that you're tired and that it's time to take it easy.

Take it easy this week. Try not to stress on anything that doesn't matter as much.
Relax and just enjoy life, you deserve it.
