I am feeling like I need to get rid of excess baggage from my life so I'm looking for ways to simplify today. To rest. It was kind of a sad day. Edd began full disability from work. It was a day of thoughtful ponderings. There are way too many things I have no control over so ...
I'll pray. God wants me to. I think He sometimes limits Himself based on my prayers. So it's a privilege to pray and a responsibility. But most of all it should give me peace.... But I'll have to ask for that too.
I'll cook a delicious but simple dinner of steak, baked potato and edamame.
I'll throw some things away or bring them to goodwill. I can purge unnecessary gadgets that accumulate in junk drawers that are never used.
I'll read. Not on the internet. But a book I can hold in my hands and focus on. And not be so distracted.
I'll stop comparing my life to someone (anyone) else's.
I'll cherish time spent with people I love whether in person, talking on the telephone or writing a letter.
I'll be cautious not to over-analyzing myself and everything and everyone. It's one thing to have self awareness. It's another to be self absorbed.
I'll be grateful.
That ought to be enough for today.
