Welcome to Word-filled Wednesday.
It's such a joy to be your hostess today!
The purpose of WFW is share God's word (no famous quotes or literature...only the word of God)
The home of WFW is at Amy’s 160 Acre Woods.
I recently read a quote by Robyn Coffman that made me stop and think about what she was saying:
“Clutter isn’t only what you can see; it’s what you can’t see. It perpetuates your overloaded schedule, endless commitments and overwhelming fears. A cluttered mind means over-thinking, over-reacting, over-analyzing, over-worrying, and over-committing.”
Most of us can identify with the need to de-clutter our lives. I believe as we do, we are less burdened down and begin to experience more of the abundant life that Jesus promised to us.
Today I would like to offer a few suggestions on how you can start your own "Not-to-do" list.
- Not to feel guilty for saying “no” to something that may be OK, but is not right for you at this particular time.
- Not to feel like you need to have all the answers to everyone’s problems.
- Not to feel responsible for everybody else’s well-being.
- Not to say “yes” just because you were invited.
- Not to buy something just because it is on sale.
- Not to think you have to cook a big meal, do laundry, clean the house, and spend quality time with your family all on the same day.
- Not to mull over or become burdened down with other people’s mistakes.
- Not to compare yourself to others.
I think you get the idea. The more you give yourself permission “Not-to-Do” so many things, the more you will free yourself to live a more balanced and abundant life.
I’ve got a long way to go, hopefully you’ll join me on this quest!
