Contentment in a Culture of Comparison

I don’t remember ever asking anyone how much they weigh. On the other hand I’ve been asked that question too many times to count.

As a teenager my extended family (women only) held a weekly weigh in after Sunday dinner. Who weighs in after dinner?

Holding On & Letting Go

Just one look at my junk drawer and you’ll see that I clearly have a problem with letting go.

This tendency to hold on started in childhood. I didn’t want to discard old toys, even if pieces were missing. I had hopes I would find those missing pieces someday. You just never know.
