I am not quite as good at embracing his style as he is at mine! - especially in the heat of a moment but the point is I understand, honour and respect his boundaries (and he is good at gently reminding me in a way that I respond well to!) and so we have a very harmonious life.
It's easy to live small - to stay safe and hide behind our thoughts of 'I can't, I won't or I don't want to'. But consider, all of these thoughts are just that. Thoughts. They're not real. Just illusionary limitations, self imposed prison cells.
80% of chronic disease is caused by lifestyle-related issues, setting boundaries empowers you in the other direction of these kinds of health statistics.
My son, like always, tumbled out of school amidst a blizzard of books and sheets of paper. Face smeared with dinner and a toothy grin, his cast off jumper trailed behind him. In his even filthier hand was clutched a crumpled little blue drawing of my partner and me. He doesn't draw often. It was presented with a shy pride in the way that turns my heart to Play-Doh.
Learning how to say no, deciphering what you want to say yes to, and where your priorities lie, will help you to experience a heightened sense of spaciousness and calm, cultivate better personal energy and enjoy a greater level of wellness.

We women often fail to put boundaries in place to protect ourselves from stress, anxiety, overwork and other situations that drain the energy from us. Whether this be not saying no when deep down we know we should, or whether it be not setting personal boundaries around what we will and will not do for ourselves.
