Say “No.”

free-christmas-powerpoint-background-5[1]Overwhelmed? The holiday business getting the better of you? Struggling to maintain composure through preparations for four or more Christmases? Then say “no.”



  • No. The laundry can wait.
  • No, we don’t need to get a gift for everyone.
  • No, I don’t need to bake and decorate six different kinds of cookies for the party. A fruit salad will be fine.
  • No, you don’t need that toy.
  • No, I don’t need to stay up late for yet another Christmas event, even though they are so much fun!
  • No, I won’t get up early to get ahead on my busy to-do list. I need my sleep.
  • No, we won’t drive 6 hours to meet you for Christmas. Perhaps Easter.
  • No, I will not wear that hat.
  • No, I am not available to work late.
  • No. Thanks, but no.

Be merry, be refreshed, be blessed.
