Simplify Your Life

I wrote this a few years ago for someone who was a little overwhelmed. It still applies today.

• Tell the truth more often.
Then you won’t have to remember what you said to whom.

• Tell the truth as kindly as possible. 
Then you won’t have to say you are sorry so often.

• Curb those impulses to lash out with righteous anger.
Then you won’t have to spend so much time mending relationships.

• If it sounds too good to be true, find out what the exchange is.
Criminality is simply getting something for nothing. If you are not one already, why become a criminal now?

• If life is hard to face, don’t make it more complicated by running away from it .
Find some part of your life you can confront and do something about it.

• If you can’t think of anything else, find an animal to care for.
They will probably not give you any grief about it and you will feel better.

• Find somebody to help, starting with yourself.
If all else fails, take a walk until you feel calmer and rested and look at these again.

This and a lot of other useful tips can be found in my book, Danger Quicksand – Have A Nice Day which is still available as a free download..
