no/nō/ excl. A negative response; a denial or refusal
Learn to say NO. We are all empty vessels with a funnel at the top and stuff pours into us and fills us up so we can pour ourselves out on our families, friends, and those we meet. Be filled with the right stuff so you can pour out the right stuff. Means you will have to say no to a lot of good things that aren’t the best things (love, joy, peace, kindness…). What are you going to say no to and what are you going to be filled up with.
These are the years of “middle management.” Pursuing holiness and wholeness in this decade will mean you have very little bandwidth beyond your domain, and that’s not only “ok”, but it’s a good thing.
