Good day, cat lover. It’s Mondays with Merlin and I’m Merlin your reluctant host today. It’s the holiday season and in the spirit of generosity some of us agree to do things we would rather not. We say yes when we want to say, NO! We do too much for too many and forget to take care of ourselves. There’s nothing generous or kind about that. Life isn’t about getting everything neatly tied into a bow. A bow can look pretty or it can strangle. The only reason I let Layla tie one on me was to illustrate the point. Trust me, it didn’t stay on long. I know how to say no loudly, and may I suggest you do the same this holiday season. More no, no, no equals more ho, ho, ho.
