No Means No

So the lesson here is not to fill up your time
but learn to say no to those who would want to fill it up for you.
It is hard to say no
and then think you should have, could have, would have. . .
Saying NO with conviction is something really hard to learn and stick to.

I have learned it, now I find it hard to say yes.
But I’m learning that my yes can also be with conviction
and then I can throw my whole heart into something
I have chosen to do because I want to
and for no other reason than that.
