Three things



Since I didn't post the last few days due to illness, there are three tasks for today all bunched together.

#1  This may seem like a weird thing to do, but if you use email much, this will help you feel less buried.

Unsubscribe from 10 junk sites today. At the end of the email there is a place to do that. Get rid of them for the days to come. It will make you feel lighter!

#2  Allow yourself to sit and do nothing but think for 3 minutes today. You'll be surprised how hard this is because our lives have become so cluttered.

Think about where you have been, where you are now, and where you would like to be. Begin to plot how you are going to get there.


#3  Let go of yesterday and start today Fresh. Here's a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense."

We are half way through the challenge.   There are 30 more days if you are interested.  Please give me feedback as to whether or not this is something you want me to continue.

Reframing


It's all about how you frame it. That's what I tell myself often. It's taking a situation that makes me anxious or upset and reframing it into something that I can accept or appreciate.

Here is an example: Your kid will not leave you alone. He's by your side every waking hour. You can see him as a needy person or you can rejoice that he wants to be with you and that he is attaching.

So, pick something today and reframe it.

A Ten Two-Letter Sentence



Today I want you to live by a 10 two-letter word sentence.  

I think that most of us put the responsibility for things on someone else -- a coworker, supervisor, friend, spouse, child, parent....

but just for today live by these words:

if it is to be it is up to me.

What are you worried about?


Today it's time to throw away (or put in God's hands) one thing you are worried about that you can't do anything about on this very day. If you have anxiety about lots of things, pick one. Then tell God just for today that He can handle it -- or if you don't beleve He exists, simply throw it away for the day. If the thought comes back into your mind, refuse to dwell on it.

In fact, pick one positive thing you can replace it with. Get how it goes? Replace the anxiety with a positive thought just for today and see how it goes.
