Words Of Wisdom

A friend of mine sent me the following that was emailed to her by another friend. She had been lamenting that she was busy, stressed, know how it is. We commiserate about our stress & busy lives. My goal the past year or two has been to simplify my life. In all aspects. I want to enjoy the little things more, my family & my child.

After talking with my friend, "Matt," sent the following note to her.

Here are what I call the

Words Of Wisdom by Matt

"I would like you to try to stop worrying so much about the things you have/want to do. Everyday, just take 1/2 hour, or even ten minutes, lay down on the floor or sit in your chair and do nothing. NOTHING. Set an egg timer to make sure you don't get up prematurely. Everyone gets time to do NOTHING, and you can afford this time. Don't think about doing anything, don't think about what needs doing, just sit and breath. And think about your breath, going in and out. And think about people you wuv/love. Or just try to think about nothing. This is what I advise.

Optional step 2: When you finish, pop the cork on some beer, and think about maybe doing something, or not."

I especially like Option 2 but I'd probably substitute a glass of wine! I also like his recommendation to "set an egg timer." Does anyone still use an egg timer?? It all sort of fits the philosophy of Matt, don't you think?

Thanks Matt!
