Lifehack: An ideal to-do list
A couple of months ago, I talked about considering a to-be list. Today, I have a to-do list you should think about.
The world would be better if these seven points were on folks' to-do lists.
Be kind to others: We don't know what people are dealing with, and even on the best day, there is stress to deal with. It doesn't take much effort to do or say something that will put a smile on someone's face.
Release what you cannot control: You're only responsible for your actions and attitudes. You can't force the world to run according to your calendar or whims. Learn when to walk away from a situation and let go of expectations when you can't control the outcome.
Count your blessings: Yes, yes, yes! Your situation is rarely as dark as you perceive it to be. Counting blessings is a reset mechanism that benefits you.
Read your Bible: There is much wisdom in those pages, and who couldn't use more wisdom to navigate the world today?
Listen to the Holy Spirit: If you're a Christian, you have a direct line to God. That's huge. You know that internal nudge you feel? That could be the Holy Spirit directing you. I know it's worked that way for me. Sometimes the Holy Spirit encourages me to say something, other times, I'm told to keep my lips zipped. Other times, I'm called on to extend a kindness to someone.
Walk with God: This is easy if you follow points #4 and #5. I walk with God, praying throughout my day. Trust me, it makes life more joyful.
Be kind to yourself: Too often we rush through the day being of service to others without considering our needs or wants. Be as kind to yourself as you are to other people. Don't speak down to yourself in your internal monolog. If you wouldn't call someone else stupid, don't say that to yourself.
