Open thread: Let's talk "NO"

“When you say yes to others, make sure you are not saying no to yourself.”
— Paulo Coelho

This week’s newsletter was a tardy one, but seems to have hit home. I’ve had three messages this morning with some variation of “thank you, this was just what I needed to read right now.”

So I wanted to dedicate this today’s open thread to No: past, present and future. Tell us about a No in your history that you’re proud of. Or share something you wish you said No to? What’s on your plate right now that you’d love to No off into the trash? And what’s something you’d like to say No to more in the future?

Hit the blue button, and see you in the comments (or not, if you feel like giving this email a No too.)
