Self-CareApril 22, 2022
Did you know that sometimes saying “No” is taking care of yourself? I hear “No” sometimes – when I "escape" as the humans call it or when providing security by barking at the postal worker. But many times, “No” can be a positive word. When you are physically and emotionally exhausted – take time for a walk or a nap, maybe call a friend to talk, or maybe just sit and enjoy the fresh air as I like to do. These brief moments of saying “no” gives your soul time replenish for the next day.
