Learn when to say no

on February 17, 2016


I have been saying no to the wrong things. Walks on the beach with my son. Getting out the house on days off. Running around looking silly with my son.

Today,  while walking on the beach and running around being silly with my son I realised I have been focusing tok much on what is comfortable and not what is fun.


I resisted the urge to say no to him when he asked to go to the beach and when he told me to come play in the lagoon… I did. You know w what the worst thing that happened was?  My pants got wet. You know what the best thing that happened was?


My pants got wet…

I had fun,  my son had fun,  my husband laughed at me and took photos and when I got home I felt happy, content even.

Here’s to more Yes to the fun things!

Food was on point again today.  A colleague got soft serve about an hour before home time and it was so so tempting but I reminded myself that my choice was Ice cream or a baby. 


Breakfast: Scrambled eggs and sour cream


Snack: watermelon seeds


Lunch: left over burgers on cloud bread with added sour cream

Afternoon snack: 2 small plums


Supper: Oetzi Korean beef shortrib and red cabbage paleo egg rolls (I ate only 1) and a paleo crepe with butter and honey


3 litres of water achieve!

How was your day?

  1. well done Hila. Saying yes to the fun stuff some times feels like such a chore, until we do it and after, enjoy how much fun we (as adults) have … I keep forgetting that.
