|NO! a little more and see what happens...|
As usual I reserve Friday for viewers and friends to contribute with a topic that they come up with on their on. Today is NO different and I actually really like the idea. Now I asked my guitar player to give me a topic with the word NO in it. So he asked "You mean like NO you can't have? Or knowing how to?" And I told him whatever comes to mind...He said if you know more you will do more. So quickly the light bulb went off in my head and I was headed down a somewhat poetic path that was destined for mind boggling...
Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you always seem like you are the one saying yes in the situation where either you should say NO, you want to say NO, someone else could have volunteered their yes or you feel like you have to say yes out of guilt or some feeling regarding the other party or parties involved. At some point in our life, we have to groom our mind the same way that we groom our gardens. A plant can not grow without the proper nourishment and attention. Our brains are the same way. If you notice whenever you are placed in a yes or NO situation that is where your inner being connects with you and your heart. How will you respond?
So how can you do more by saying NO Reggie? Simple...By saying NO, you create alternate options. If it is your goal to reach a certain destination and you say NO to one particular route, that means that you have to come up with another one. By freeing yourself from stamped ways of living, you then are allowed to embrace opportunity and balance. As my Grandmother used to always say "There is more then one way to skin a cat"...For those of you have NO idea of old quotes like that, it simply means there is always another way of doing something, that's what make life unique.
If you find yourself in a situation where you genuinely want or need to say NO...Say it and trust that the others involved with the situation will understand. If they really have your best interest at heart they will. Now be sure that you realize you may one day end up in the same situation and if you are asking to be granted the same consideration, be willing to offer it. Make the best out of your weekend my people. Live, Love and Laugh...Speak to someone you don't know...and in a situation where you normally say yes, but want to say NO...Change it up a little bit and see what happens.
