I was thinking about how amazing it is the amount of things that have come in and out of my life over the years. People that were very important to me, activities that were so essential at the time, and all the stuff. At the time they were in my life, I couldn’t imagine them going.
I sit here this evening, looking about at what’s currently in my life, and know that it’s not permanent. I don’t know what will go when. And I don’t know the things that will take their place. The only thing that will remain is me. That’s not including my body as it currently is, because that will change. And at some point I will go.
Because I feel this looseness about what’s in my life, I think it helps me enjoy what’s here now. And it often helps when things go. Even though it might hurt at the time. Like when my dad died recently.
When I get quiet inside, I feel a companionship with life. Life keeps me company amidst the comings and goings. I wrote a lyric in a song recently that said:
Life is pretty easy, if you don’t mess with it,
It will hold your hand, and tell you not to quit.
I wrote a companion piece for this post in my Better Late Than Dead humor site: http://betterlatethandead.com/2018/05/20/when-things-fall-apart/
This Monday the 21st of May, I’ll be hosting another Clutter Busting Webinar. It’s at 8pm EST. As a group, we’ll be taking a deep look at what’s clutter in our life, and the ways in which we can let it go. It’s a very kind and supportive group.
