100 Ways to Simplify you Life

I have been going through the beginning stages of simplifying my life. What that means is telling myself that I need to, ha! When I was at the store the other day I found this book by Joyce Meyer called, 100 Ways to Simplify you Life. I decided to take a look and see if it could move me from saying I need to do it to actually doing something about it. Each chapter is short so that is good. I will keep the list running on my sidebar and will blog about my progress. This is going to be a long process considering there are 100 things and I need about year to do each one. Just joking :) but not really. It is in my nature to fill my schedule to the brim and wonder how it happened.

Anyhoo, The first one is to practice living one day at a time; give yourself-your thoughts, your conversation, your energies, every part of you -to the day at hand. She actually says that in the book. The ability to focus on the one thing that God has laid out for me. Not trying to do it all and not worrying about all the other stuff I'm not getting done. Anyone out there have this problem? Well, you can come along and try it with me. What's the one thing you need to be doing right now? Write it down and focus on it and let go of the other stuff that gets in the way of you doing the one thing.

Love that! I am going to try harder to let some things go. I have a sign in my art room that says, "SIMPLIFY!" I need to do that first!
Thanks for sharing.
