Small Commitments - Big Changes - Part 4


Make Small Commitments. Get Big Changes!
(complied by Micheal Dalton Johnson)

  • Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  • Don't have negative thoughts of things you cannot control. Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
  • Don't overdo. Keep your limits.
  • Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
  • Don't waste your precious energy on gossip.
  • Dream more while you are awake.
  • Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need.
  • Forget issues of the past. Don't remind others of their past mistakes.
  • Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
  • Make peace with your past so it won't spoil the present.
  • No one is in charge of your happiness except you.
  • Realize that life is a school and you are here to learn. Problems are simply part of the curriculum that apprear and fade away but the lessons you learn will last a lifetime.
  • Learn a new word everyday.
  • Smile and laugh more.
  • You don't have to win every argument.

Again, just a list - take it of leave it - follow it or not - that is your choice. I notice that there are a lot of references to past in this list, makes me think, makes me wonder, makes me contemplate.

(This is the last part of a 4 part list. Once I figure out how to link the others to this blog the others will be easier to find. New to blogging - and my mind is on cold meds and is a bit mushy today, will figure it out later). 

Staying MOtivated

Very good list...I really like the idea of making peace with my past...stop telling myself I should have done this years ago and enjoy the fact I'm doing it now

I haven't heard- "Dream more while you are awake." Planning to work on that one...
Keep moving forward...
