C'est La Vie June 28 2015

So many people today feel that their life is spinning out of control!  When I begin to feel that way, I consider what I can cut out of my life and make some changes.  But what if you are raising young children, caring for aging parents or have other unchangeable circumstances.  I hope the following suggestions help:

  • focus your energy on things you can control
  • be clear about what you would like to accomplish in life and spend at least a little time each day working toward your goals
  • do the most important things first
  • create a practical routine that allows for some flexibility
  • if you need help make it known
  • avoid procrastinating
  • do something you enjoy everyday even if it's just for 10 minutes
  • allow others to care for their own responsibilities
  • accept your present circumstances

Remember:  Life is not a matter of holding good cards but of playing a poor hand well.
