This is Just AWESOME!

'Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you have to worry twice.'

  1. Pray
  2. Go To Bed On Time. (I really needed this one)
  3. Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed!
  4. Say NO to projects that won't fit into your time schedule or that will compromise your mental or physical health. (Having Fibromyalgia, I added physical)
  5. Delegate tasks to capable others. (Trust me, this is hard for many of us)
  6. Simplify and unclutter your life. (Currently working on this one)
  7. Less really is more. (Although one is often not enough, two are often too many).
  8. Allow extra time to do things and get to places. (Don't be like me rushing around all the time)
  9. Pace yourself. Spread out big changes and difficult projects over time; don't lump the hard things together all at once.
  10. Take one day at a time.
  11. Separate worries from concerns. If a situation is a concern, find out what God would have you do and let go of the anxiety. If you can't do anything about a situation, forget it.
  12. Live within your budget; don't use credit cards for ordinary purchases.
  13. Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key buried in the garden, copies of important papers, extra stamps, etc.
  14. KMS (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble.
  15. Do something for the kid inside of you everyday.
  16. Carry a spiritually enlightening book with you to read while waiting in line.
  17. Get enough rest.
  18. Eat Right. (Working on this one as well)
  19. Get organized so everything has its place.
  20. Listen to a tape while driving that can help improve your quality of life.
  21. Write down thoughts and inspirations
  22. Everyday, find time to be alone.
  23. Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. Try to nip small problems in the bud. Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try to pray.
  24. Make friends with Godly people (Remember, not everyone in church is Godly)
  25. Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand (I carry a small Bible and notebook in my purse)
  26. Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good, 'Thank You Jesus!'
  27. Laugh
  28. Laugh some more!
  29. Take your work seriously, but not yourself.
  30. Develop a forgiving attitude (most people really are doing the best they can & the others you can't change anyway)
  31. Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most)
  32. Sit on your ego.
  33. Talk less, listen more (Thank you Jesus, I am working on this one)
  34. Slow Down.
  35. Remind your self that you are NOT the general manager of the universe.
  36. Every night before bed, think of one thing you are grateful for that you've never been grateful for before.

AND, never forget.....'If God is for us, who can be against us?' Romans 8:31

' There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound.' -Diane Cortes

If only we had the time to put all this into practice, alas time consumes us and our thoughts. However it is good to be reminded.
