?Good Advise?- Depends
I subscribe to a number of things, among them, daily mailings from Beliefnet which is spiritual and offers a wide variety of selections. Today's mailing from the "Spiritual Weightloss" is, well, for me, dangerous. Here it is and why it is dangerous:

Simplify May I suggest that you un-complicate your life?

Keep things on the simple side. Try to see difficult, all-consuming problems in another light--as the sum of a lot of little parts. Break down tasks into manageable, little steps. (ok, this is good. I can handle it).

Only do things that are going to bring you joy, peace, and prosperity. Don't do it unless there's some good to come of it. Don't do anything out of guilt, shame, resentment, anger, dread, hostility, or if you are forced or coerced. (hmm, if I follow THIS advise I would never do any housework or many other things that are *expected* of me).

Look at your schedule, and everything you want or need to do today. Is everything on that big list completely necessary? Can some things wait, or be put aside? (define necessary- if I don't get the dishes done, we will have to order out- which will cost money but, then I don't dirty more dishes.....)

Finally, be sure to include some re-creation and reflection time for yourself today—and every day. (heck, I try to do that every problem is the rest of the stuff).

    Teri, love the quote. When I simplify my life, nothing gets done...just kidding. Maybe I take simple too far.

    Simplifying seems like a good idea on paper, but its just not that easy. People aren't simple, neither is life. Jen
    P.S. Enjoyed reading your 20 things...

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
