Yesterday’s post offered up 17 things that we can let go of to enjoy a greater night of sleep (along with much peace of mind).
Today as I am waking up and preparing to begin my day, I am asking myself a few questions and I think they would make wonderful prompts for our journal writing today.
Get out your journals, get that cup of tea or coffee, here goes….
1. What am I holding onto in my life that is worth holding onto?
2. What am I holding onto that is no longer serving me well?
3. In what areas of my life am I good about being relaxed and flexible about?
4. In what areas of my life am I rather stubborn and rigid?
5. If I was told by my doctor today that I only had a few months left to live, what would I change?
6. What do I want more of in my life?
7. What do I know deep down, that I just need to once and for all- let go of?
A blessed day to you,
Being easy on yourself and others can be easier said than done. We tend to get attached to expectations of certain outcomes and when they don’t happen we get disappointed. We are driven. We are on the go and have goals. We are working hard and achieving.
If we are too hard on ourselves and others in our lives we can get very stressed, burned out, cranky, irritable, and just miserable. We won’t like our demanding selves very much and people won’t be attracted to us either.
We can still achieve our goals but be easy on ourselves and others. This is what I mean:
Being easy and gentle on yourself and others will result in more peace, greater health, and probably a longer life.
You will also more than likely get more done on your to do lists and accomplish your most important goals when you feel less pressure and you are living life at your ease.
