AYD - Jan 6, 2014 - Out with the Old ...

"Sometimes old things need to go away.  That way, we have room for the new things that come into our lives."
- Randy K. Milholland, webcomic

My apologies.  But sometimes it needs to be said in such an obvious way in order to grab our attention.

It is that time of year.  Many people make resolutions to get the old habits out and bring in new intentions.  Many people clean a corner of the basement or the garage or the office or the toy room or ... and it goes on and on.

So while we are in that mindset ... lets drop a few more unnecessary things.

Self doubt.  Takes up alot of our emotional capacity.

Procrastination.  All this does is pile stuff up in the corner and cause more actions to be needed in less time later and that leads to a tangles mess of yarn and no starting point...until Next New Year when we resolve to .... ( you get the picture).

Old arguments, old grudges, old relationships, old baggage of pretty much used to be.  If you live in the past, the past lives today. ( quote this Frenchman evermore)  If you sacrificed good decisions for bad and now you dwell on it, it is like feeding a black hole and it is sucking day after day out of your ability to grow from the experience.  And don't put this crap into a recycle bag... that is the point... put it right into a burn pile and have it gone once and for all.

Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda.  Worst three sisters I ever dated.

There...that is a start.  Nice short list of 4 major life distractions.  Drop some of these and you will see color in your daily outlook.  You will hear birds sing.  You will win money... okay, so I will drop Drama too.  You get the picture.  Short list.  See progress.  Not overwhelming and easier to maintain focus.

Sometimes old things need to go away, and while you are letting them go, you will feel a whole lot less burdened and much more aware of what right now is offering you.

Good morning, Good cleaning, Greater you.
Greater you, is a great gift for those around you.
