Sometimes, all you have to share with the world is...NOPE.
Hi! I’m Coach ____ and This is The Morning Mantra.
*cue intro music*
Hi, my name is MK Fleming. I'm a run coach based in Denver, Colorado. But this isn't a podcast about running, exactly. Don't tell my clients, but *whispers* we're never really talking about the running. When you know a crap-tastic event is coming it helps to have a mantra to keep you centered and focused as you move through it. You don't have to be an athlete to be hashtag #coachedandloved by coach MK. And if you are here, then you are hashtag #winningatlife.
Today’s mantra is: NOPE.
I'm TIRED YA"ALL! I miss my home, I miss my bed, I miss my CLOTHES...and I want to go HOME. The kids are too, we really don't like this commute.
This is what's making it easier to look at all there is to do and say, "NOPE".
The dishes in the dishwasher.
The emails waiting for answers.
The dirty clothes in the washer.
WE'RE GOING DEEP YOU GUYS. All I can do is look at all of this and say, NOPE.
Which is actually pretty powerful, because we have been conditioned to believe that everything we say no to is a failure, that each 'no' closes more doors behind that first 'no', and for many of us, that's true. We know the cost of 'no' is higher for some folks than others, that's called privilege. But we can say NOPE to some things, and it won't be THAT bad.

So, the mantra: in those days when you have nothing left to give, take stock of everything you don't have to do RIGHT NOW, and give yourself the biggest gift ever....a big ol' NOPE.
