Good Morning: Simplify Your Life!

“Go confidently in the directions of your dreams; live the life
you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the
universe will be simpler.”
~Henry David Thoreau
I had heard the first part of this quote–but I had
not heard this second part until Annastasia sent it in. I have
noticed that just as our surroundings get cluttered, our minds also
get cluttered. I can testify that today’s quote is true–whether
applied to your physical surroundings or to uncluttering your mind.
Often we become our own obstacle–especially within our mind. We
get wrapped up in something we can’t change or doesn’t really
matter. We exert hours of thinking over a situation that doesn’t
advance us any or help anyone. We engage with negative people and
let their negativity overshadow us. We make life more complicated
than it needs to be. When we conduct “spring cleaning” of the mind
and shed the thought patterns that don’t bring us any benefit, life
becomes simpler. Sometimes instead of fighting an uphill battle, it
is better to turn around and just walk down the hill and find a
better hill to climb.
Your Turn:
Where have you been making life more complicated than it needs to
be? What can you do today to bring the focus back to a simpler way?
Your Affirmation:
Each day, I focus on where I make a difference.

And as always, don’t forget to start your day with a heartfelt: “Something great is going to happen today… I can’t wait to see what it is!”

And when ending your day ask yourself:
“What is one more thing I can do to make today matter?”
