Note to Self: Be Content Today by Remembering This

note to self mike bundrantDear Self:

Let’s focus on these three things so that today can be full of contentment.

1. You’re not Superman

Today, I am not going to change the entire world, or my entire self. I am simply a person doing my best. Instead of expecting the world, I’ll expect to imperfectly get some simple things done.

Doing a few small and productive things today will keep my life moving forward. I am content with this.

2. Respect others by being mindful that…

My life is shared with others and theirs is shared with me. I’ll respect this reality today by being helpful. And I’ll remember that sometimes doing for others helps them most and sometimes insisting others do for themselves is best for them.

3. Today I’ll focus on what’s working

Things go wrong all the time. But today, I’ll remember what’s working; what I’m grateful for and how blessed I am. This will allow me to be in the best frame of mind to avoid self-sabotage and solve inevitable problems.

What do you need to remember today so that you can be more content? Real quick, write it down:)
