Magic Words

Saturday, October 17, 2009

I have some new magic words in my life. They are, deep breath, "I can't afford it."

As much as I have avoided using, or let's face it, acting on those words in the past, I'm surprised how well they've been working for me lately.

Twice recently when I've fessed up I can't afford it as a reason why I couldn't do something the person who was asking has breathed a big sigh of relief and said something along the lines of, "Oh good. I can't either."

So I'm thinking "I can't afford it," can be like my new club. I'm going to trot it out more and see how many friends want to join.

  1. I'd join your club but cannot afford the membership fees :)

    I'm in!

  2. Mmm...I've been saying those four little words lately, too, and it's crazy how good it feels. I think it has more to do with being honest with myself than with anyone else. Yep.


Now you say something!
