I woke up this morning with so much on my mind that I immediately went to my workbench and started on projects. I was happily stringing and tying and cutting… well, not quite. When I went to use the nippers I had a problem cutting the wire. I tried and tried from different angles, but they didn’t work. Then I realized that they were the pair that had gone bad a long time ago, so I proceeded to place them back in the drawer, but then it hit me. Why am I hanging on to something that doesn’t work? This tool hasn’t worked in over 3 years. It served it’s purpose well in the beginning, but now, it isn’t.
I started to reflect on life. How often do we (I’m really talking about myself) keep something just because of habit or comfort or “I’ve had it so long I can’t part with it?” If it can’t be fixed, then throw it away, get rid of it, upgrade! If it hasn’t worked then why do we hold on to it?
There are very rare instances, for me, when things are right and I am soooooo thankful that as of today, I’m there. Things that aren’t for me have either been let go of by me or them. Either way, it worked. It may have been hard in the beginning, but I realized that it’s okay, life goes on.
P.S. – I don’t get epiphanies too often, so please don’t expect these all the time. LOL
