Just think how carefree life would be if your cares could wash away as the waters cascading into the abyss of the Ladybower Reservoir overflow.
Instead of trying to hold on to the “shoulds” or “oughts” or even the “used-to-bes” we could live in the present enjoying the moment of now. If we could let go of the wishes, we could embrace the reality.
The now of our lives deserves our attention. Letting go of the unnecessary things would allow us the energy to find what is real. Simplifying our lives doesn’t just mean getting rid of unused items, it also means getting rid of unused dreams.
Life is what it is. If you don’t like it, change it. Let the cares of dashed hopes drain away so you have the space and power to create new, possible, reachable dreams.
