Great list. I saw an Oprah show about what can be done in 10 minutes to unclutter a home and am going to do some of the things today. They said the state of our home reflects what is going on in our life. Both of mine are a mess.

Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places.


Whatever you do in life, think higher and feel deeper. C. Artias

Your personal history is not your true identity. Don't let the past define who you are.. Eckart Tolle

You are the architect of your actions, words and voice. What an opportunity for love, truth and purpose to shine. Sister Andrea Jaegar

Accept each moment as if you had chosen it. That frees you

Thank you for the wonderful advice!

Carol from Southwest Utah. Sing your own special music . Sing your own special song. Sing your own special music, even if nobody else sings along.

Sing, sing a song,
Make it simple to last your whole life long.
Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear.
Just sing, sing a song.

Tankyou, I had needed to be reminded of these things.

Please think before buying a cosmetic or home cleaning product, how many animals were hurt in the process. PETA has a great website for cruelty free products

Try to start everyday with a smile.

When you are down to nothing, God is up to something.

Religious content enclosed.



'Never borrow from the future. If you worry about what may happen tomorrow and it doesn't happen, you have worried in vain. Even if it does happen, you've worried twice.'
* Pray
* Go to bed on time.
* Get up on time so you can start the day unrushed.
* Say No to projects that won't fit into your time schedule, or that will compromise your mental health
* Delegate tasks to capable others.
* Simplify and unclutter your life.
* Take time to smell the flowers.
* Allow extra time to do things and to get to places.
* Pace yourself. * Take one day at a time.
* Separate worries from concerns .
* Live within your budget.
* Have backups; an extra car key in your wallet, an extra house key some where.
* K.M.S. (Keep Mouth Shut). This single piece of advice can prevent an enormous amount of trouble or hurt to someone.
* Do something for the Kid in You everyday.
* Carry a Bible with you to read while waiting in line.
* Get enough rest.
* Eat right.
* Get organized so everything has its place.
* Take notice of those who love you, they could be gone tomorrrow.
* Keep a journal and write down thoughts and inspirations and memories.
* Look into the eyes of the one who loves you, you'll see how much you're loved when things aren't going your way or your having a badday.
* Having problems? Talk to God on the spot. * Don't wait until it's time to go to bed to try and pray.
* Make friends with Godly people.
* Keep a folder of favorite scriptures on hand.
* Remember that the shortest bridge between despair and hope is often a good 'Thank you Jesus .'
* Laugh.
* Laugh some more!
* Never take life or any one for granted.
* Develop a forgiving attitude (most people are doing the best they can).
* Be kind to unkind people (they probably need it the most).
* Sit on your ego.
* Talk less; listen more.
* Slow down.
* Remind yourself that you are not the general manager of the universe.* Smile lots.* Don't be afraid to love,God gave us that gift and we're supposedto use it.* Hold your sweetheart tight every day.It may be the last time we get that chance.* Don't ever give up on love, life and happiness. * Life is short.* Always be the best you can be but don't lose yourself in the process.* Don't let others run your life, they have their own lives to run.* You can listen to advice but that doesn't mean it's always right and you have to take it.* Always accept kindness from others.* It's better to give than receive.* Don't be afraid to take a chance, you may not ever get another one.* Never be so scared of something that in the process of being afraid you lose the best thing that ever could have been.
* Every night before bed, think of one thing you're grateful for.
