Simplify To Make Room For Those Important TO You

Sometimes life can spin to fast and before you know it the day is gone and then another and yet another. Step back take some time and keep in mind a few tips

1. Keep in mind what is important to you. Don't let the daily hustle and bustle take those pleasures away. Make up your mind what is important and sometimes it is not what is important at the moment. My grandmother always said the work will wait while the days pleasures may not. Children grow fast and we age a bit every day (sad as it is) that is why it is so important to relax and take the time to enjoy the day and life. When deciding what is the most important ask a question or two of yourself. Take a moment and see if what will change in a day, a week, a month or a year from now.

Sometimes it is our activities that take over our life. Doing to much can create a negative effect draining your energy and time. Decide what activities and hobbies you most enjoy. Is there something that has become to demanding? Sometimes we must release an activity or commitment in order to make room and enjoy what we find interest in. When we strive to do to much we can become overwhelmed with stress

Clutter is something that often stresses me out as well. With it not being organized my life seems a bit chaotic. Try to remove what you no longer need or use and keep the rest straight and organized.

One of the toughest words to say is a simple 2 letter word. The word I speak of is one that I have trouble saying myself  "NO". Often people will take advantage of this and you may find yourself doing so much that there is no possible way. It is best to learn to be selective in the jobs and goals you accept. Remember in the end it is what you hold important that will end up suffering.

I try to hard to get it all perfect or as near to it as I can get it. The thing is I am sure that there are others that are like me. I have been told many times that there are no perfect individuals and while I know this I must try to remind myself of that. Trying to select a realistic goal is better than feeling like it never is good enough. Being successful also spills over to our children. We try to hard to make sure that we set them up for success and make it better than our childhood. Instead of pushing to hard we should concentrate on being there for support and whatever the outcome offer a bit of love.

Taking a moment for yourself allows you to refresh , enjoy life more and giving those around you a more loving refreshed you. Take a walk, participate in a hobby, read a book or sit and ponder whatever it is take some time and do it. 

In this world of technology it is hard to escape but getting away for a few seconds is what you may need. There are times where go for a ride to simply get away from the world, don't worry when you go back it will all still be there but for a moment it will help you escape from it all.

  1. Thank you for the encouragement. Clutter stresses me to but I always seem to have. I'm working on getting the house organized. One room at a time. We homeschool and I'm grateful we get to do this at this time. I'm enjoying this time with my kiddos.
