Listen Here Simply Your Life
Do you remember how you felt when life was simple? Well the truth is truth is life still is easy. It always will be. The only difference is we are older, and the older we get, the more we complicate things for ourselves. You see, when we were young we saw the world through simple, hopeful eyes. We knew what we wanted and we went for it…it was simple. We ate when we were hungry, drank when we were thirsty, and slept when we were tired.
As we got older life became more complicated-we have jobs, family, friends, relationships, debt, worry, stress, lack of communication, and everything begins to stack up. The problem is we complicated life as we got older and when that happens we feel trapped, we feel like there is no way out, but I can tell you there are so many ways to make your life simple, and today i am going to give you a handful of ideas.
Okay so Don’t try to read other people’s minds. Don’t make other people try to read yours. Communicate. Put the cell phone away and talk!
Be polite, but don’t try to be friends with everyone around you. That is just ridiculous and complicated Instead, spend time nurturing your relationships with the people who matter most to you.
Your health is your life, keep up with it. Eat right, drink responsibly, take supplements, don’t smoke, sleep, exercise, use a common sense approach to your health.
You don’t have to have it all….so Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.
Don’t waste your time on jealously. The only person you’re competing against is yourself. i see this all the time people jealous so much so that women are not allowed to have men friends and men cant have women friends, and I always wonder if you are in a relationship and you are not allowed to have friendships with the opposite sex are you in a relationship or a hostage situation.
Here is a good one, how about you Get rid of stuff you don’t use. Really I see people put stuff in storage and they will never use the stuff but they keep it….it’s like keeping track of junk….it is not productive.
Ask someone if you aren’t sure. It is a simple rule, rather than making assumptions, just ask….
Don’t try to please everyone then we get into enabling and we get with people who want us to take care of them, and then our life becomes so complicated the next thing you know we are going to alon meetings, on a tons of medications, and wonder how we got there….take care of yourself!
Be sure to pay your bills on time.
Handle important two-minute tasks immediately. Why wait until the 2 minute tasks become 10 twenty minute tasks.
Finish one project before you start another. We complicate life by having so many unfinished things that nothing ever gets done and we feel like a failure.
Here is a big one and I see it all too often….DRAMA so Stay out of other people’s drama. And don’t needlessly create your own. If you are living your life to its fullest, you wont need the drama. It is that simple.
I do this, and it keeps me on a good path, I only buy things with cash. PERIOD….I refuse credit cards I do not want the hassle of bills and debt, so I pay cash, and I will get into this one more in another show because finances really does create havoc.
Most important make mistakes, make lots of them, it is how we learn and be willing to learn from them, laugh about them, and move along.
You can see there are many things you can do to simply your life and improve it, I am sure can think of a great deal too, so make it a reality and remember keep life simple….
For today, this is Dr Tyler Woods saying walk in peace
