One of the fundamental laws is that life flows in cycles….
At some point:
- What goes up must come down
- What was smooth may become bumpy
- What was straight will become crooked
- What was neat will become a mess
Unlike what the Ronco Rotisserie (Which I love by the way and I use it often to make a scrumptious juicy rotisserie chicken!) wants you to believe is that you can’t continuously live on autopilot with a “set and forget” it mentality. You eventually have to look at the chicken to make sure it continuously spins and doesn’t burn against the hot coils or that it somehow hasn’t fallen off the spinning mechanism.
Do you want to know how I know – It’s because I’ve done it. You’ve put systems in place and let it go. Now as a caregiver it really does work, but you have to check in on your systems periodically and basically tweak as you go. There’s always a chance for something to go awry but know that you can handle it and you’ll always be able to bounce back! Just expect and accept that things may not go as you planned all of the time.
#OperationSimplify is a lifestyle.
The more we move toward a state of acceptance and move to simplify our lives of everything whether it is physical clutter – clothing, paper, old stuff that takes up space in our environment or mental or emotional clutter – holding on to past hurts, grudges or fears. We can overcome these challenges that come up in life with deliberate action and knowing that we can always begin again from wherever we are. I challenge you to make a commitment to yourself to simplify your life in all areas.
- What can you improve financially?
- Are you happy in your career or profession?
- What would you like to change in your relationships with family, kids, spouse, and friends?
- What’s something new that you would like to learn?
- Do your parents need help?
As I said before, the main the thing is that everything moves in cycles.
This is why we need to check in and schedule an appointment with ourselves.
In this ongoing #operationsimplify series, we’ll explore various projects to get and keep your life in order. We can only Be Well and Be Swell and maintain a life filled with joy if we are intentional about it!
