These are the words that I heard this morning as my subconscious is speaking to me. I’m developing a new program to assist anyone going through a change to transition through it with ease, grace, and a bit of sanity.
Yet, when I look at the words and read them again, I see they could be meant for any stage of life you’re going through or simply moving through moment to moment.
“It doesn’t have to be much” signifies and reinforces the little things in and of life that are important. The daily hugs of your children. The daily (or more often) “I love you” to your spouse and/or kids. The little thank you gift to someone who simply made you smile.
“It doesn’t have to be a big production,” again reinforces that a little can be enough and go a long way. You don’t have to send a lavish birthday card to your sister for her birthday; just getting one—any one—sent is good enough.
And what about the adage, “less is more?”
While thinking about my program, a cool workbook (have to come up with a different term—who wants to work??) would be an awesome addition and benefit for the audience. My first reaction, however, was UGH—so much work to put together! That is when the voices of the reasonable subconscious came forward. “It doesn’t have to be that elaborate! A few questions or essay questions are sufficient for each topic.”
Yes, yes, yes!
Whew! I’m relieved of creating a big burnout publication, and can visualize what that little (but loud!) voice had been saying to me this morning.
How about you? What does the little voice in your head tell you to do to make your life easier?
I’d love to hear about it!
To your success,
