What's the greatest gift I have been given this year? The ability to say no. This relates to the moment to which I keep referring whenever we're supposed to write about important moments of the past year. For years, people have been telling me I need to learn to say no. Sometimes, my answer was that I would say no when I wanted to. But this past year has taught me that even if I don't want to say no, saying no really might be the best thing in the long run. Or it just might mean more time for the things to which I have already said yes. I've known that I could say no for years. This past year, I truly started to believe it. And act on it.
