Saying "Yes" to You  "No" To Others Without Feeling Guilty
If you're resentful from saying "Yes" to everyone but YOU, it's time to learn to say "NO"...Now!

Commitment statement: I always act with integrity. I am vigilant and attentive that when I say “Yes” to another person, I am not saying “No” to me. I give myself permission to put myself first without feeling selfish.

My Personal freedom is important to my ____________________________________________.
My Personal Freedom provides me with _____________________________________________.
When I don’t have my Personal Freedom my life is ______________________________________.

Every day for the next 30 days, I give myself permission to say “No” to demands that I cannot fulfill without “Yes” to me and focus on my Personal Freedom. I promise to treat myself to simple gestures of pleasure, indulgence and recognition to honor myself first and foremost. By taking time for myself and my needs, I am ultimately making room for more ______________________________ in my life.

Now go treat yourself to something special like a new journal to write in, fresh flowers every day or create a special altar just for you where you can relax and meditate.
