Just Say No

In high school they told us “just say no to drugs and alcohol” and many jokes were made about saying no. I wish rule would have been taught to us a little differently.

~It’s okay to say no to someone that drains you emotionally or makes you feel bad about yourself

~It’s okay to say no to going out if you are exhausted

~It’s ok to say no if you just don’t want to

~It’s okay to say no to picking up extra shifts if you are already over hours and going to school and have 2 tests and also run an online business and are trying to workout eat healthy and get enough sleep to survive

Unfortunately that last one has been my life for the past few months and instead of saying no I have been saying yes… and let me tell you I am worn out! In my mind I needed to say yes to everything so that I will “deserve” to get a promotion or “deserve” to be successful, and that is just not the truth! I will never be perfect and there is nothing that I will ever be able to do to make myself perfect and the unfortunate news is you can’t either!

You are good enough as you are! Trying to kill yourself to do anything and everything isn’t necessary!

So for the sake of our mental health let’s start saying no!

First Ever Blog Post!

Hey guys thanks for stopping by! This is Simply Sydney, I’m Sydney and I’m going to be taking you along with me through my life – the good, the bad, and the ugly! 

I’ll introduce myself a little bit! Like I said I’m Sydney! I live in Texas but am originally from Washington state! Right now I am in college studying to go into business communication (aka I have no idea what I want to do but I need a degree!) I work a part time job that I don’t love, but it helps out! I also am an artist with Maskcara Beauty and I’m pretty obsessed with it! I’m still learning how to grow my little business but I’m trying my best and taking little steps towards my big goal! I have a puppy named Dakota who is the sweetest and wildest pup you will probably ever meet! 

I have always wanted to start a blog but have never been bold enough to do it, but these last few months I have really been working hard to stop standing in my own way, stepping out of my comfort zone and working really hard to start a life that I am completely obsessed with! So thank you so much for coming along with me as I try to navigate life!

XOXO – Sydney
