NO is the Answer: BPM

I’ve been worrying.

Two years ago, this path of blogging was meant to be a hobby, a way to pass time and document my life for family and friends. And now…

It’s SO much more than I could have ever dreamed.

I walk down this path and at each turn there are surprises, new friends, new opportunities, and so much potential.

But I worry.

Is this taking too much time from my family?

Really how far will I get with this whole blogging thing, and once I get “that” opportunity will it be worth it?

What if I run out of things to write?

Oh, yes all these questions run through my mind at any given time {that’s why I stare off into space sometimes}.

And while this worry floats through my brain I keep filling my plate with glutinous goodness and I just want to gobble it all down, but I know too much of a good thing can be B-A-D.

So, lately I’ve had to put projects aside and wait for an answer, to see what the future holds, to see if there is room on my plate for Just. One. More. Thing.

I’ve been waiting for an answer, for someone to address my worries and reaffirm the path I’m on and that I’m going in the right direction.

And yesterday was that day.

All it took was one simple word


And immediately I knew I was on the right path.

    1. So true…I think overall that’s what was bothering me so much. I just didn’t know if I was going the right way, sometimes I just wish I had a crystal ball so I could know whether I was making the right decisions. But, with one word this week I know for certain, I’m on the right path and it feels VERY good.

  1. It’s so good to stop and ask such questions – and I’m so glad your answer was no 🙂 I think it’s important to have some things for ourselves. Give a lot to family, but reserve some space for your needs too and don’t feel guilty for it, because it adds to wholeness and personal well-being, which in turn, contributes to familial well-being.

  2. I felt as if I was reading my own thoughts – verbatim! There’s so much beauty in the meaning of a solid “no.” No is doesn’t really mean no. It means I’ve already said yes to something much bigger. Focusing on that “yes” helps the “no’s” come a little bit easier.
