Have A Not-To-Do-List

Have you ever come to a point in life when you wanted to enjoy life so much but at the same time being bogged down by things that don't add values or meaning?

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-analysing, over-worrying and over-committing. - Robyn Coffman

So, de-clutter your mind by giving yourself permission to have a not-to-do list:

1. Not to feel guilty for saying no to something that may be good, but not right for you.

2. Not to worry about how well-adjusted your kids will be as adults.

3. Not to hang something new in your wardrobe without giving something away.

4. Not to feel over-responsible for everybody else's well-being.

5. Not to answer the phone after a certain time each night.

6. Not to say yes just because you've been invited.

7. Not to schedule busy activities on Sundays and family days.

8. Not to buy something just because it's on sale.

9. Not to think you have to make a meal requiring more than three ingredients, do laundry, clean the house, and spend quality time with your family all on the same day.

10. Not to ruminate over your own, or other people's mistakes.

11. Not to compare yourself. The more you give yourself permission not to do, the more you free yourself to live a centered, abundant life. And God will help you to live this way.

Listen: 'He gives power to the weak... those who trust in the Lord will find new strength...' (Isaiah 40:29-31 NLT).

Make spending time with God each day a priority, and everything else will fall into place.
