183 – Make it a “HELL YES!”

Hey, Mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose, the short actionable podcast for mamas who want more. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Mama’s daily dose is…make it a “HELL YES!” Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.

Have you ever said yes to something that you regretted that you’re like, I really shouldn’t say yes to this, but I kind of feel bad about it. So I’m just going to say yes. And then you spend days or weeks or however long being like, oh, I should not have said yes, I should have just said no. But now I’m going to let the person down. And I really don’t want to do that.

So here’s a way to fix that issue. Make sure it is a HELL YES. If it is not a “hell yes” for you and you’re not excited about it, then say no. Just say no, because it is going to take so much more energy from you to say yes to something that you don’t want to do, than just saying no, in the beginning.

But if you’ve already said yes, there is a way out. I was doing interviews on this podcast for a while, which I absolutely love. I love talking with people getting to know their stories, what makes them click what makes them drive how they can inspire others. And I love it. But it was no longer a hell yes, for me, because of the time and energy that was going into those interviews, and editing them and producing them and getting them on this podcast. And I already had interviews scheduled out through I think like April or May, I had six or seven interviews scheduled. And I sent out an email. And I was just honest with all of them and said, “You know what, this is no longer a HELL YES for me, it is not the best use of my time. And I’m going to find another platform for it.” And each and every one emailed me back saying, I feel that, good for you. Thank you for being honest with me. And thank you for being honest with yourself.

So if it is not a Hell, yes. Then it’s a no mama and have the confidence, set those boundaries to say no, because a lot of people will respect those boundaries. And if they don’t, then it’s probably not something you should say yes to anyways.

Mama, your action today is to get rid of something that is not a HELL YES. Get rid of it today. Call the person, ask someone else to do it. Whatever you need to do to get rid of it. And Mama, I just revamped allyoumama.com Go check it out now! There’s a brand new quiz on there. “What the F do I want now?” Because as Mamas, as much as we may not want it to change, our lives have totally changed. What we want now and what we want in the future is a lot different than before we had kids and it can leave you asking “what the f do I want now???” and this quiz is there to help you figure that out. So check it out at allyoumama.com And take the two minute quiz and start figuring your stuff out and have a great day free of mama guilt because you deserve it.
