I found this tucked away inside a book this morning, and thought I would share it with you.
The rest of the quote is: “It is never too late to take an inventory of your life and change the things that no longer serve you”
Thich Nhat Hanh recommends:-
“Sit down and take an inventory of your life. If there are things you have been hanging on to that are not useful and deprive you of your freedom, find the courage to let them go. An overloaded boat is easily capsized by wind and waves. Lighten your load and your boat will travel more quickly and safely. Then you can offer the precious gift of freedom and space to yourself and loved ones, but only if it is truly there in your own heart.”
This must have stuck in my mind when I read it, because I had taken the time to type it out and keep it close by.
I like the idea of taking an inventory of my life, almost like cleaning out the closet and ditching the stuff that will never see the light of day again (not on this body anyway).
I think this is something that I’m going to start. How would you go about doing this? I’m starting with a list.
