With Victory Lap Retirement now finished I’ve set out on a mission to simplify my life. This past weekend I cleaned out the cave, aka my home office, where I do the majority of my writing. I managed to fill up a garbage bag with papers containing my thoughts and ideas, newspaper clippings, magazines, and books. I was so pleased with this process, I expanded this simplifying process to the rest of the house, and I am amazed by all the “junk” collected over the years. In many cases, I didn’t even remember how it was acquired. It’s not just physical “junk” that I will purge, but also the “junk” that takes up valuable space in my mind.
Today I would like to talk about how I found a way to discard grudges which are a huge time and energy waster.
“Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness, laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you cannot change.”
