it was always easier for me to say "yes" to others than it was for me to say it to myself. i was always putting myself last.
when i finally started to say no to others and yes to myself, things started to change. i realized that the things that were once important to me were really only important to others. when I began to close in my circle... the friends and family that were nurturing and not negative, life changed. my faith grew, not just spiritually, but also in myself. trusting my journey, and my decisions. saying yes to myself because i trusted my Higher Power, and had faith and hope. finally, there was hope. and all it took was me saying yes, to Him and to myself.
