Hi Folks, the weekend has simply been splendid as always and I would like to remind you that having had a really strenuous week, it is simply time to have fun but in having fun I want to remind you of a concept that most of us know but may not have been putting to practice over the last few days, months or years as the case maybe.

Good morning all; the instructor's voice was clear in a class of 30 students. As the class went on, he asked a question; a lady stood up and tried to answer but in the process, she tried to be “overtly phonetic” and that left us all wondering where she had been the night before. She never used to speak that way and was clearly not a child who was just learning how to speak. Where did this manner of speaking suddenly emanate from? All minds in the room seemed to be communicating without uttering a word. Then it became clearer that even the message she was trying to pass across was not coherent and in the process of trying to forcefully change her natural manner of speaking, the answer obviously did not make sense. 

Then the Instructor smiled and said hey young lady what exactly are you trying to say and by the way where did you suddenly pick up this manner of speaking and why is it that this happened all of a sudden; I thought I saw you 2 days ago; what and who have you been listening to? Obviously embarrassed, she retorted to her shell and could no longer take it all while standing. The message of the day came out clear from the instructor to all of us; please learn to keep it simple. Why do you want to be who you are not and why do you intend to do things in more complex ways than you can handle. Please try to keep it simple and then we continued with answering the question and then into the lecture of the day.

The following tips I found here would help you keep it simple when you intend to do things

1. Be Impeccable with your Word: Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the Word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your Word in the direction of truth and love.

2. Don’t Take Anything Personally: Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

3. Don’t Make Assumptions: Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.

4. Always Do Your Best: Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse, and regret.
Have a fun filled weekend and remember that the only way from now on is simplicity
