Muchness

Living each day much muchier

What’s more important?

The sun will set without your assistance.
The Talmud

 

Things are important because you say they’re important. You may have decided it or agreed it was so to keep the peace.

We often get pulled in different directions because someone else decided something was important.

Is spending time with family more important than having the table perfectly set at Christmas?

Is your life more important than flooring through an amber light to arrive on time?

Are your finances more important than the advertisements cajoling you to buy?

Is your health more important than most other things on your to-do list?

You are in control of what’s important and what can wait. You are in control of what you do and say. You are in control of what you spend and how.

You are not, however, in control of what other people find important. You can worry, argue, manipulate, accommodate or throw your hands up in exasperation. They will probably still believe and do what they did yesterday.

The sun will set without your assistance. The world will go on with a will of its own. Forgive. Let go. Do what’s important to you.
