I got asked to do something that I really don’t want to do, but saying no doesn’t sit well with me. That’s been my barometer for a while. How do I feel about saying yes? Saying no? Which one fits the person I am, and the person I want to be?
Often what sits best isn’t the easy answer. And it doesn’t always work out the way I’d planned. Humans are terrible at predicting what will make them happy. Or what will matter in a month, or a year. I know there are people who avoid making a decision, as if that isn’t making a decision. It is. Pretending that I’m not saying no when I just ignore something doesn’t sit well with me.
So I’m saying yes.
