March 23. Day 82. Such a pushover

Almost without fail whenever I am at South Bank someone is taking a fall. When there's a large body of water around there's an almost irresistible urge to climb on someone's shoulders and make yourself a target. "Look at me. Look at me! You know you want to give me a shove." Today was no exception. What fun these young men were having.
On dry land being a pushover is not always such fun. I know this because I'm just a girl who can't say no. Actually that's not true. Just ask my husband. I say no all the time. (Naturally I am referring to requests for extra pocket money. If you were thinking of something else, shame on you. Get your mind out of the gutter). Now as I was saying before I so rudely interrupted myself. I find it hard to say no. Sure I'd like to coordinate that subject, be on that committee, supervise that student.
The thing is that I believe strongly in Karma. What goes around comes around. Do the right thing by others and they will do the right thing by you. There are some people who will always disappoint you. Most don't. And when push comes to shove, as it did at South Bank today, I'd rather be a a bit of an easy target than a constant obstruction. But please don't tell my husband.

  4. I am the same as you, I don't like to say no if someone asks me for something, maybe that's the helpful teacher in us. But then sometimes, you have to in order to help yourself once in a while, which always leaves me feeling guilty as hell.

    Fabulous capture, love the joy and movement.

    Thanks for linking up.

  10. Saying No is the hardest thing to do (for most people) but it seems not for any of my children if I asked them to help me with something!
