Do you ever wonder why no is one of the first words we learn to say as kids, and one of the last ones we use comfortably as adults? Today I'm reflecting on giving ourselves permission to say no when we need to.
Do you know what I noticed today? Two fat robins hanging out on the grass. It was then that I landed on the word for today, the thing I have gone through too many days not doing, the thing I finally, accidentally did today: notice.
I felt worn out today. That's the phrase. Worn out, like parts of you have been rubbed off to reveal the stuffing beneath. And then I had a conversation with my mother about old clothes. That's when my word chose itself.
