Every year since I can remember, my New Years resolution has been about trying to perfect myself, or appear more perfect to others. But it’s a new decade so time to turn over a new leaf. This year I’m focusing on something that has a much better chance at improving my happiness: saying no. 2020 is the year of no. No to being on a plane three days a week, even when I convince myself I can “handle it.” No to hosting an event at my apartment on short notice. No to the meeting that could have been an email. No even when you think I’m being a b****, and no especially when I feel myself believing you. Because here’s the deal, I’m saying no to make space for yes. Yes to being there for my son and my new baby boy who is due this month. Yes to being the best CEO of @GirlsWhoCode I can be. Yes to spontaneous moments of joy, and being present for it all. You can’t be brave if you’re tired.
What are you saying no to in 2020?
