Wishcast Wednesday-Just Say NO!

Today Jamie asks "What do you wish to say no to?"

A great one but also a tough one. I have a hard time saying "No!" I feel guilty if I do. I'm afraid I'll be judged or make people angry if I say no.

But, if I answer this with what I'd say no to, it would be:

No, to being afraid to say no.
No, to the little voices that whisper that I'm sad and pathetic, that I'm no good,
that I'm worthless and can't do anything right.
No, to that same little voice that tells me I can't doing anything and that I will fail.
No, to the people that want to control my life, my thoughts, my beliefs, my passions, that try to make me into who they want me to be.
No, to the fear that controls me and forces me back into my little cave of safety and old habits of comfort.

Those are just some of the things I'd say "NO!" to.

  1. That negative little voice is so destructive--it's great that you can start saying no to it! As Ellie wishes for herself, I wish for her also.

  2. I find that, the older I get, the easier it is to say no. One of the perks of getting older!
