One of my New Years resolutions is to learn to say no because sometimes life can be so overwhelming that it can make me feel like I can't do anything right or even I can't dedicate time to the things I love the most to do. I have learned that I don't have to impress anyone but me, and that means I should stay true to my values and what I think will make me improve as a human being.

So, I encourage you to say no, sometimes, little by little, to the things you really don't want to do. Either because you don't have the time or the intensions. And don't feel guilty because by having more time in your hands you would have the chance to spend it at something that makes you feel most alive.

Next time someone come to my way to distract me I will say:

Actually, I can't.

I'm too busy creating a life that can make me feel proud of.
