Just Blow It Off Once a Day: Got Your Curiosity Up? Read This!

Mom, pick one thing from your to-do list. And blow it off. That’s right. Just don’t do it! Why? I’ll bet there’s at least one task that would be better putting off. I’m not saying to procrastinate, but to not live like an automaton. Do. Do. Sometimes, we can’t make it happen, we have to let it unfold. Here’s a personal story...

My to-do list said to call my colleague Nancy. I started dialing, but my gut said, “No, later.” I balked, but listened, and did the next thing. When I called Nancy later, lo and behold, she said that she had just come in. Had I called earlier, she wouldn’t have answered. I’ve found that to live wisely, I have to find the balance between making it happen and letting it happen. By trusting the bigger picture and the divine guidance I receive. 

And you, mom?
