Another old bit in my note archives, which feels eerily like it is a question addressed to myself in the present, even if it was asked in the past.
Obviously I still haven’t grown out of the need to ask this question.
Perhaps I never will:
I read today that there is no such thing as a ‘time problem’ or a ‘money problem’ – there’s a priority problem.
I agree. Wholeheartedly. It is also the experience from my own life.
It can all be summed up like this: If you think the problem is you don’t have enough of something, perhaps you should try to eliminate the need for that something first.
If it’s really not possible, then go chase it up – fight for it.
But more often than not, you will be surprised to find out that it is possible to let go of a whole of things, people, money, etc. that you thought you Absolutely Needed.
Before I was a vegetarian, I thought I could never let go of eating meat. Once I had tried, I discovered it was surprisingly easy.
I’m not saying you should become a vegetarian – heavens forbid! :-). I’m just asking:
What do you – right now – think you can’t let go of, but which you feel stressed about keeping in your life?
What if you could let go of it?
Why don’t you find a reason to do it, then?
(Read the reason for these types of posts here. It’s not the best, but it is good enough.)
