Things to do for Free

Here are some tasks from a sheet I've had for several years - these items are intended to motivate you and allow you to live a more fulfilling life. I included some editorial comments! (if you can stand them)

- Take a 10 minute walk - every day, and smile - it is the ultimate anti-depressant. The funny thing about smiling is if you walk around with a smile, people smile back at you and they ask you where things are, especially in a grocery store. This makes me feel popular and needed so I smile all the time.

- Sit in silence for at least 10 minutes each day. I have never done this one - I think it might make me crazy to be alone with myself - besides I'm not sure where to go to be alone unless I park on a deserted road....sounds kind of dangerous to me, I think I'll skip this one.

- When you wake up in the morning complete the following statement, "My Purpose is to ____________ today."
This sounds pretty good - I might change this to "the most important thing to do today is...."

- Play more games and read more books this year.
I'm all about that - only not the electronic type of games, actually get dirty outside and use what nature provides! I love doing that.

- Make time to practice meditation and prayer.
I could definitely use more time to meditate - maybe I'll do this instead of sit in silence....maybe I'll listen - you can pick up on so much if you just sit, listen, wait...

- No one is in charge of your happiness EXCEPT YOU.
I forget this often....I let others try to make me happy or I try to make others happy - you can't force someone to be happy, I've tried!

- Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
This goes a long way in showing humility - sometimes I forget it's not all about me and that my trifles aren't foremost in others minds - I know it's hard to believe.

- What other people think of you is none of your business.
I worry about this a lot. I am much happier when being me, instead of that person I want others to see....Me is much more fun anyway, She can be a pain in the kester!

- Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. I might be awhile on this one.

And you're right people start asking you where things are...happens to me in Office Depot.
