Clear Your Mind

It’s hard to clear your mind.  

I recently saw this thing that said the average human has 10-15 recurring thoughts a day.  For example, "pick up milk at the store", "want to ask that person this question", or "need to pay that bill."

These thoughts plague us, fill up our brain, and we don’t think about the bigger picture. 

The fix:  When thouse recourring mundane thoughts happen, write them down, do something about it, and stop dwelling.

I'm trying that, the problem is I keep loosing my list...

Rules to Live By

 

The thing about kids.  You think your job is to be a good example for how to live life, and they end up being the best example for you.  

For example Isabelle and Isabella, two cousins from Citrus Heights, CA.  They came up with their own "Rule" book.  Everything from "don't push", "don't bite the dentist", and "protect each other".  Each one numbered.  But, they prone Rule #154, "protect this book".  

They lost it.  Turns out they left it at Wal-Mart and an employee found it, realized it's value to the owners and took it to the local media and spread the word.  Their rules to live by became a sensation, news spread to Isabelle's mom, and the girls were reunited with their "Rule" book.  

If you could add a rule to the book, what would be in it?  Just like the girls had each rule carefully numbered, let's follow their lead.  Add your rule below with a number!  

I'll start.

Rule #1:  Life the life you love.  Don't let anyone steal your joy!
