A simple formula for living…

“My formula for living is quite simple. I get up in the morning and I go to bed at night. In between, I occupy myself as best I can.” Cary Grant

Good morning! Grant’s quote makes the formula for a happy life seem so simple, doesn’t it? Confucious said “Life is simple, it is we who insist on making it complicated.” Each day, why not try the simple advice in this quote: Occupy yourself the best you can. For at the end of any day, if we have done our best in all the things we have touched, we can ask for nothing more.

Your Turn: As you go throughout your day today, keep it simple. Occupy yourself the best that you can.

Today’s Affirmation: I remember to “keep it simple.”

Trying to cram just one more thing into my day, hesitating to say no to something I know I don’t have time for, I put myself last instead of first.

It’s still hard, and saying no is so difficult, but I’m working on it.
