Sometimes turning things upside down offers a fresh vantage point, a different angle – suddenly what was most important is less-so, something that was lingering and festering in piles of neglect gets to either shine atop that pile or exit via trash bag.
The other day I moved some things around. Suddenly everything looked different. Clearer and clearer. I find I’m doing fewer things better and better. This is a good feeling. The other day I re-organized my pending work into streams, ranked each by importance … and filled two large trash bags before I was done. I just bought another box of trash bags – I’m stocked and stoked – ready to clear my plate of anything that doesn’t matter so I’m ready for a new-year-plan set to execute with stronger and narrowed focus.
I as well like sad quiet moments. It allows me to reflect, refocus on life. I have no regrets from the past, but I have regrets for the future. Those regrets are simple. Do I have enough time to accomplish everything I haven’t done till now. I have a bucket list of “to do’s” and I pray I can do them all. Time will tell, but for now I keep pushing forward scratching one of the items off the list at least once a week. - MJ. Calgary, AB
