Dear Steadfast Girl,

Part of growing up and living as a wise woman is learning that we have to say NO to things (even good things) so that we will have room in our lives to say YES to the very best things.

Learning to say no is a difficult process that reaps enormous rewards. When we learn to say no, we find that there is so much more time, energy and resources left in our lives to say YES when the exact right things show up.

The important thing is to trust the NO’s so that we can embrace the YES’s.

This is hard work, but you can do it, dear friend. It is all good. It is all necessary. It is all important.
If you’re feeling frustrated and disappointed that something turned out to be a no, go ahead and throw a fit…then move forward in gratitude and joy. It will be worth it.You are so very loved.
