yes and no.

best day ever

Oftentimes the simple act of saying ‘no’ means you are saying ‘yes’ to something else. I shared yesterday about how we said no to children’s extracurricular activities, which said yes to a whole lot more peace and sanity up in here. The minimalist schedule means a lot of nos and yeses.

I’ve spent the better part of today working with my mom on a goddess costume, for my middle girlie to be Athena at her homeschool co-op this week. because of that, I’m saying ‘no’ tonight to a long blog post, and ‘yes’ to chilling on the couch with my man watching baseball.

When has ‘no’ meant ‘yes’ for you?



We’re in the homestretch of my series31 Days of Mindful Minimalism. This is day 28.

  1. Saying “No” meant I could schedule our day for us, instead of everyone who wanted me to volunteer, the lessons, activities, and groups that start out simple but become overwhelming. So we spent time playing with the toys we received. We baked and cooked. We played games. We went to the park. We were together. (And we didn’t eat and change clothes in the SUV anymore.)
