Sorting It Out
By John R. Greenwood
I feel an urge to squeeze more life into each day.
Unfortunately I tend to be exhausted at days end; and several hours prior.
I’m not certain whether it’s physical or mental or a parlay of the two but it scares me. There are so many things I want to do, and so many things I need to do, and so many things I hate to do.
How do you sort them?
It’s like trying to sort a closet full of favorite shirts; frayed collars and memories, have-to-save dress shirts, just in case shirts, vacation sweatshirts with paint stains and torn pockets.
Which one to save?
Which mental attachment do we discard and risk losing forever?
Just keep them all.
Put off the sorting one more day.
Hold off that life-altering decision for another twenty-four.
There’s always tomorrow.
