Simple Math

“To attain knowledge, add things every day;

To attain wisdom, subtract things every day.”

Lao Tzu



I don’t think this EBay thing is worth the time and materials it takes to list and ship. Perhaps I should rethink my plans???


I tend to over schedule things.  I really have no sense of time. I believe I can do it all and have time left over. When I inevitably fail, I berate myself.

My list for today above and beyond the normal cooking and household chores:

1,  Prepare a new recipe for gluten free/ sugar free brownies.

2.  Photograph, Reiki and shred 10 years of old business records.

3.  Set up an eBay account.

4.  Photograph, Reiki and list one item.

It seemed doable to me.  I thought I would have time left to take my mother to the drug store.

After 6 long hours of sorting through papers with bloody staple stabbed fingers, aching back and my mother assisting at the overheated paper jammed shredder, four years worth of records are gone. Nothing else on the list was touched. Big surprise that there was no time left for clowning around!

The above image was created from today’s shred fest.

I am grateful for what I accomplished today, and I will not worry over what I didn’t do.
