Admit your mistake and get rid of the dresser in your garage
Do you have a dresser in your garage that you don’t need? You feel bad you spent the money on it, and now you don’t need it. You don’t want to admit you made a mistake, so you leave the dresser in your garage. You can’t park your car in your garage, and you stubbed your toe on the dresser today.
Well, we have a lot in common. There is a dresser in my garage. It has been there for two weeks. It is waiting. Waiting for me to decide what to do with it. We don’t need it anymore. The drawers are stacked up top of it, so it will not be too heavy to carry to my car. I feel bad that I spent the money on the dresser.
Well, we all make mistakes, dear, so just put it behind you. We should regret our mistakes and learn from them, but never carry them forward into the future with us.
―L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Avonlea
Ann of Avonlea, has some sound advice. I will put my mistake behind me, and learn from it.
There is no reason to carry mistakes into our future.
The dresser is loaded in the back of the van. It is time to get rid of it and move forward into my future with one less dresser.
Now to clean out the rest of the garage.
Is there something in your garage you don’t need anymore? Are you having a hard time getting rid of it?
P.S. The dresser has actually been in my garage for five weeks. I could have just edited the second paragraph and changed the two to a five. But I left it as it was to let you know how time slips away when you put difficult decisions off.
