Want Balance in Your Life? You Need to Re-learn One Word (Can You Guess What It Is?)

As toddlers, one of the very first words we learn is "no." Ever since then we are being told that this is not a word to be used in daily dealings with other people. However, as an adult and as a mom, it is one of the very valuable words to have in your vocabulary.

Moms aim to please and are easily guilt tripped to giving in at their own expense. Part of self-care and regaining balance is learning to use that childhood favorite word again.

You said it, Anneli Riismaa ! We moms really do need to reclaim the word NO!

I love this reminder Anneli Riismaa , because when we say "No" we are really saying "Yes" to something else. 💗💗💗

Yes, yes, yes! Saying no can be so important to self care!

It's so easy to forget self care with all the "mommy guilt" we get.
