"I've learned so many lessons the hard way on my way to 49 years old. I was 40 before I learned that 'No' was a complete sentence. 'No thank you' is even better.
"Sometimes we take on too much, but there is a way to stop doing that in life. What I know now is you have to figure out your real values and then put boundaries in place to protect those values.
"For me, my values are my faith, my family and being of service. I know if those priorities aren't in place then I'm a mess.
