To say “No”

Posted on Updated on

ONE OF THE GREATEST LESSONS I have learned in the last 6 months is to say “No” to (and walk right away from) things which — though they may glitter and appear superficially attractive — I discern to be at best worthless (of no real value), at worst potentially destructive. I’m speaking here not only about material acquisitions but also about relationships with people. This has been liberating and I would recommend it to all without hesitation. With practice, it gets even easier. However, it should not be used in a cavalier or whimsical way but with discretion, as something serious and life-enhancing. Be prepared, though — in terms of the direction this world is taking — to end up with nothing (or next to nothing) and no one (or almost no one). 😉
