If you are like me, you have spend much of your life looking for value. What is the best? How do I get it? And, if you are like me, you have been searching by adding things to your life. More and more and more. More skills, more hobbies, more friends. Bigger house, newer car, better bike, nicer clothes... on and on it goes.
The reality is, this is the quickest way to have a life filled with things that we don't really care that much about. For me, this year has been all about removing all the excess. Getting rid of things and habits that don't really do anything for me, but I keep them "just in case."
Having a giant burden full of "just in case," is really just one thing. A giant burden.
So I have been shedding it, one piece at a time, and revealing the real treasure in my life. Creatively I can see my strengths more easily and use them for the betterment of others. I can focus my attention and time on the things I really love instead of being flooded by a sea of sub-par.
I have really just begun this journey, and am excited to see what happens as I shed more and more and more.
Much love friends, and find your best by getting rid of what doesn't matter that much.
