This weekend we poured through all of our holiday decorations and went Christmas crazy. While I have menorahs and dreidels, and we still celebrate Hanukkah, I have to admit, Christmas is my favorite holiday.
We had boxes STUFFED with every kind of decoration imaginable, many of which should have been thrown away long ago. I was so tempted to run out and buy new decorations, but I decided that before I did that, I would go through and clear out everything that we no longer needed.
Whether it’s going through a stuffed closet or just re-evaluating your general frame of mind, it occurred to me that in order to get what you want, sometimes you have to be willing to give up what you’re used to. For some of us that change comes easier than others. For most of us, it means that we have to learn to be comfortable being uncomfortable.
Just like we get stuck wearing the same comfy pajamas long after we should have said goodbye, we also get into comfortable thought patterns that get us in to trouble. What do you need to give up, in your house, head, or heart in order to get what you want? Are you ready to let go?
