❌ You're Allowed to say "NO"!

Give yourself permission to say NO if something doesn't feel right

💡 Your Mantra for Today

I am allowed to say “no"

This affirmation gives yourself permission to say no if something doesn't feel right or if you don't have the capacity to take on something.

It can also provide you with a sense of self-empowerment and remind you that you have the right to set boundaries for yourself and respect your own needs.

📝 A Reflection for Today

Do your goals truly reflect your desires? Or do they reflect what someone else (a parent, partner, friend, etc.) wants for you?

This journaling prompt encourages you to explore your true desires and goals.

By reflecting on whether your goals reflect your desires or someone else's, you can gain clarity on what you really want and need out of life.

This can help you make sure you're on the right track and make decisions that are in line with your own values and desires.
