Jar Full



Today i have 10 things to clear up, 10 things that i don’t want to carry forward to tomorrow, 10 things that must be dealt with here and now. During the course of the morning another 5 things have been added to my  list making 15 things i must get rid of before tomorrow.  I took a moment and sat thinking why i had placed such urgency on getting shot of these things and why i felt the need to be free from their very existence within me. It became quite clear to me that i thought i had reached my maximum ‘to do’ list of life and that anything new or seemingly extra would not warrant my fullest attention and was quite simply i thought an intrusion on my precious unforgiving time. I realised how wrong my thinking was, as i spread the last bit of butter over my toasted bread and threw the empty carton into the recycling bin. The idea suddenly hit me like a snowball flush on the nose, the carton of butter is filled to the brim to serve its initial purpose, when empty it is recycled to serve its second, third, fourth etc serving, in essence in order for it to reach its fullest potential it has to be emptied to be filled to carry out its duty, as so with my current thinking, i needed to look at what servings i was bringing to the table of life and keep a fresh new outlook to help me move forward.
