I guess you are wondering why My Title is named A simple No, let me began with the facts first.  

I am the one of those people that can not say no to anybody, I do not lie to them I usually drag along or go along with an ideal that I deffently most of the time wish that I could use those two little letters NO especially when it comes to family and friends.

What have I done to correct this bad habit, I've bought books on the subject practiced in front of a mirror saying to word promised myself the next time

I am seventy one years of age and still have a problem with it, There is only one way I will say no and that is when it comes to myself of who I am for instance I believes ones words and promises means something.

I also believes that a handshake should be just as meanfully as a written agreement, my mother taught us this "you are not rich you only have your words which is your bond a written agreement it stands for something it is you and it is all that you have stand by it as if it was something of  value and it is live by it as long as you are being" This is one  of my no's

Just the other day I had a chance to say the word No to someone that is a friend and I must admit I was sad all that day but I also learned something saying no is in the Dicitionary and it should mean something just as yes and anyother word we use.

I have decided that I am using it more now that I have learned that it may make you sad but it also have it's place in life.  Even with your loved one saying yes when one knows that no would have been better for oneself is a much better way to do things, Now you undersstand why my Title states A Simply No. After carefully thinking about the word no I have began to like it and it is my intention to use it more in my life it is never to late to learn something new. 

I will began with my lovingly son who is my first then my middle child, there is something that I also can not bring myself to do we will talk about that another time until then 

No no respectfully to all Smile
