This past week I’ve been caught up in the big nets of pressure that I tend to cast on myself this time of year. Today I’m reeling the nets back in. Cutting off the distracting thoughts. Removing the snares of to-dos. Not because I’ve completed everything on my never-ending list, but because I’ve realized that the list is never ending. So no more. In its place I’m focusing on the simple joys. The pleasant sounds. The sweet stuff. In this space, doors of “have tos” close and doors of “want tos” open allowing a free flow of endless possibility. Of enjoyment. Of satisfaction. And even? A sense of accomplishment.
Now pass a cherry Jolly Rancher, please.
