WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!  / Keeping it simple...

Never put off until tomorrow what you can avoid doing altogether

Avoid trying to read other people’s minds.  Don’t make other people try to read yours.  Communicate.

Avoid trying to be friends with everyone around you. You can be polite but spend time nurturing your relationships with the people who matter most to you. 

Avoid living beyond your means.  Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.  Always sleep on big purchases.  Create a budget and savings plan and stick to both of them.

Avoid jealously. The only person you’re competing against is yourself.

Avoid clutter. Get rid of stuff you don’t use

Avoid trying to please everyone.  Just do what you know is right.

Avoid multi tasking.  Do one thing at a time and give it all you got.

Avoid other people’s drama.  And don’t needlessly create your own.

Avoid eating when you’re bored.  Eat when you’re hungry.

DO enjoy life's simple pleasures...They’re free and better than anything money can buy.


Life is not complex.  We are complex.  Life is simple, and the simple thing is the right thing.

Oscar Wilde

Being happy has a lot to do with doing what’s right for you. You can either pay attention to what makes you happy, and do more of that, or avoid doing the things that make you unhappy. How is that for keeping it simple?

I hope your Wednesday is a WONDERFUL one!  Keep it simple!

Life is simple, it's people who complicate it. Not that I'm lazy or anything... but I love this comment. "Never put off until tomorrow what you can avoid doing altogether." Made me smile. Have a GREAT day, MA.

I like a lot of those avoids, Ma, especially the one about trying to read other people's minds; communicating is always the best way to figure out what someone means or is doing!

And I like that one too about avoid eating when bored; that's when it is easy to eat half bag of candy or chips and then realize later how much it was.

I hope it is a great Wednesday!
