A year of ‘No’.

Ok, it’s official. I am announcing my year of ‘no’. All my life I have said ‘yes’. This year I will be saying ‘no’.

Here’s what I’ll be saying ‘no’ to so read carefully so that you don’t get a ‘no’. 😄

Negative vibes.

I already said no to that in 2018, but I will continue in 2019.


I have chosen the Lama to be my animal this year. 😅 Lama’s are cool and don’t take any drama. They spit on it and walk away. ‘Bye Felicia!’

Saying ‘yes’ out of guilt.

I have said yes out of guilt so many times that I lost count and most of the time it just added unnecessary pressure on my shoulders. So if someone asks me to do something for them, unless they are paying me or it’s with people I love and who love me back, I’ll be saying N.O.

People shaming.

It’s 2019 and I can’t believe we are still dealing with this.

I don’t care what you look like, where you come from or what you have done. I have been put on this earth to love people unconditionally and so have you.

If you are skinny, fantastic! If you have a little extra like me, fantastic! You don’t have to be skinny to be healthy and being overweight might not be very healthy either. I have a little extra and am healthier than most people I know. As long as you are happy and comfortable in your body. You can be skinny and happy and you can be flabby and happy. You can be unhappy in both too. The point I am trying to make is if you are happy in your heart and healthy in your mind you will be happy in your body, no matter what the scale says.

This is me, fuller in figure and happy.

Being disrespected.

I will not tolerate being disrespected this year. If I have been good to you and went over and above to form a strong relationship with you and you do nothing from your side… “Bye Felicia”. Also, if you abuse the helping hand I extend to you… N.O.

So these are the things I will be saying no to. I could go on, but these are important to me. I believe it is important to know what you will and will not allow in your life. Setting boundaries will show people how you want to be treated. Just be sure that you do not overstep in these things toward other people too.

Go out there. Love people, but don’t allow them to wipe the floor with you.
