Sometimes waiting is the very best thing to do. By waiting you may have permitted the scenario to unfold more easily without needing to worry! If a decision feels excellent or best, typically that indicates you are heading in the right direction. When we listen to our hearts, we remain in honesty with ourselves. When we remain in honesty with ourselves, we learn to say NO more quickly.

How do you stop this from taking place? Next time you remain in this circumstance and you prepare to say yes, yet, find yourself having doubts, try this … STOP! Take a breath and even take a step back (this action will prevent you from saying yes). Time out! Thank the individual for thinking about you, however let them know you will have to check your calendar and return to them. When you do have time to think about it, concentrate on how you are feeling. Are you excited to volunteer or do you feel some resistance? If in a day or two you are still feeling skeptical, understand the timing might not be right for you. If you are still excited, join the committee and have a good time!
