Before you say yes.......

Laura, over at I'm an Organizing Jumkie just posted a nice freebie brought to you from The Organized Parent.

She made a a very nice printable bookmarker for busy moms. It reminds us to stop and think a moment before saying yes to something.

If you are like me, you tend to be a "caretaker" for the world. I am so bad that in the 3rd grade the teacher sent home a note to my parents that said, "Although Diann is a delightful child, she tends to be a Mother Hen. We are having problems with the other children in class going to Diann to get help in various things instead of the teachers." I took care of everyone from about the age of 4. I have no idea why, but it is just my personality.

I have, over the years, slowly gotten better at trying NOT to be everything to everyone. I know I will always have a portion of this mentality in me, because it's part of me. But, it is up to me to chose when to say yes and when to say no. Saying no is tough for me because I really truly like to help other people. unfortunately, when I say too many "Yes's" that takes away from my own family and their needs and not too mention my own needs.

I am going to print out this bookmarker on a nice sheet of card stock to help me remember that it is okay to say no.

Thanks Organizing Parent!
