There was a long hard time when I kept far from me the remembrance of what I had thrown away when I was quite ignorant of its worth. Charles Dickens.
My wife is a simplifier, (I call her a chucker) She is constantly thinning the stuff from her life (and mine). My natural way of thinking is more along the lines of (”I might be able to use that someday” - horder sounds like an over statement…but there may be some truth there)
Still - her wisdom and will prevails and my life, and our family is better for it.
Charles Dickens great quote above invites us to consider a different principle altogether… the discarding things that we simply weren’t wise enough or disciplined enough to keep, keep close and keep safe.
Some of those things may have been… time that was thrown away on the trivial (FB comes to mind), relationships that were neglected instead of nurtured, truths that were taken for granted instead of studied and lived….and on and on.
This year for me is one where I hope and am planning to be more wise about such things. I want to throw away the stuff and distraction and to keep and treasure the true and worthwhile.
Which of course includes the T4D and each of you!
Welcome back to another year of the “Thought 4 the Day”
