"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
My simple to-do list:
- Count my blessings.
The blessings of my children, my wife and the beautiful life we share are more than enough.
- Practice kindness.
I will always give the best of me.
- Let go of what I can’t control.
It’s not me. I surrender. Take me as I am, wherever I am, and I will follow.
- Share my heart.
I will share my heart, and trust that others will respect it and cherish it as much as I do.
- Be productive, yet calm.
There is a reason, and a purpose, behind every setback and disappointment.
- Just breathe.
Every moment is precious. I want to cherish each one.
The smack was just what I needed. My new, simpler to-do list gives me the opportunity to check off the right items – the ones that sound like me:
Being Love – Check
Finding Hope – Check
Showing Kindness – Check
Remaining Faithful – Check
Letting Go – Check
Enjoying the Moment – Check
The list may be just words written on paper, but each word has the ability to end the drought and fill the well with happiness.
