 Good morning Mintdom, 

Well, I did not make it to the gym last night – ug. My mind wanted to and when I got home, I planned to change and walk up to the gym. I got home later then I planned and once I was there, I just could not make myself go out again. I DID fix a very healthy dinner, and I went to bed before 10:30. That is good. This morning I am off to training so I am expecting a GREAT day today. 

It is amazing how many people I heard from yesterday that struggle with balance. I certainly am not alone that is for sure. One of the hints that I heard is to learn to say no. For instance – No, I am unable to take on that volunteer position. No, that chocolate cake will not pass my lips. Ok… well the second one must be for advanced No’ers. LOL! Actually saying no is not difficult for me as I learned a long time ago just to say, let me check my calendar before saying yes. It is amazing how many other people will fill the request. <grin>

 “Learn to say ‘no’ to the good so you can say ‘yes’ to the best.” –John C Maxwell

 “Learn to say no. It will be of more use to you than to be able to read Latin.” –Charles Haddon Spurgeon

I could not decide between the two quotes this morning so you get two for the price of one – your bargain for the day!

 AffirMINTion: I am a balance seeker!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

 What are you waiting for?

 Life is good!
