I've been using Andrea's life strategy, The Rule of Awesome, in relation to food for years now but I only just found out how incredibly helpful it can be when applied to the rest of life as well!! As an extrovert and avid socializer my default was always to say YES to most invites. However, lately I have been feeling really stretched thin and I started to ask myself with each invitation..."Will this event/dinner party make me feel awesome or not?" When my gut instinct was "no, it will make me feel more stressed!" I learned to say no and be more discerning! I feel so much more confident in my ability to say yes AND no with confidence and clarity now, thanks to the Rule of Awesome!!
