Deciding what to wear and trying to find your socks in a messy closet wastes time, literally years of your life. All those hours spend standing in your closet in your underwear searching for your socks, or trying to make up your mind about what to wear, could be spent doing something you love.
If you live with only what is essential you will have more time to draw, write, play, sleep, think, read a book, and clean out litter boxes. I need more time, I have seven litter boxes.
Will you be nice to yourself today?
When you come downstairs and see the dishwasher door open will you laugh and say to yourself. You sure were tired last night weren’t you? You forgot to run the dishwasher. That’s okay, I’ll start the dishwasher for you. Or will you be mad at yourself and think with a mean voice? You can’t do anything right. You can’t even remember to run the dishwasher. You are such a loser.
The fully decorated Christmas Tree was stuck in the hallway between the front door and the kitchen. I was dragging it by the branches from the front room to the family room in the back of the house. The tree was easy to move until it got stuck.
My stuck Christmas tree showed me we have to let go of our past to move forward.
