Just the opposite

Last week I wrote about enjoying our empty moments.  This week it’s just the opposite.

Sometimes our to-do list seems exhausting even to look at.  Today is one of those days for me.

Just staring at the list makes it worse, of course.  Prioritizing helps – what absolutely needs to be done? Crossing off some things – not because they were accomplished but because, as good an idea as they seemed at the time, they are not essential.

Simplifying is a wonderful method.  How can I still do what’s on my list in a more manageable way? 

So that’s what I’m doing today.  I’m simplifying and then moving on to the next thing on my list.  And I encourage everyone of you out there if and whenever your list seems too much, to do the same.

Then breathe in through your nose deeply, hold a few seconds and exhale slowly and completely through your mouth.  Ah! feeling more peaceful already.

Now on to the next thing on my list.
