Simplify one...

Here's the first thing I've done-

Make a list of your top 4-5 important things. What’s most important to you? What do you value most? What 4-5 things do you most want to do in your life? Simplifying starts with these priorities, as you are trying to make room in your life so you have more time for these things.

Ok-
1. God
2. Family
3. Friends
4. Myself
5. Giving/helping others

What are yours?

Woohoo! I'm at number 2.5! :) (Or something like that...)

What made you decide to put yourself above helping others? That is how life typically plays out for most people (I think), but I think a lot of us feel guilty that it is that way. Did the book say something about that (like maybe that we we won't have anything left to give anyone else if we don't make sure that we get what we need first...)?

OH no, these are NOT in any particular order, just my "list"- although I guess God SHOULD be first! :o)

I just put down what came to mind, things that matter to me above all else- I could probably add (if I wanted more things) work (teaching); home; and scrapbooking/photography as well, b/c I DO enjoy those things, too.

I think in a way you have to put yourself first. If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of others.

I went to the website..and I am inspired. Simplify everything. I like the list, and plan on starting my own list soon. Imitation is the best form of flattery right? So dont be offended when this list shows up on my blog! ha! :)
