Essential

Lately, when I would expect to find myself depleted, I find myself strengthened.

More and more, my life is a lesson in essentialism.

I can see more clearly each day which things in my life are essential, and which are not.  And those that are not are simply falling away as I press forward.

That is the only way that I have found to accomplish all that I must.  Some things simply have to go.  Some things just do not matter as much as others.  Some voices simply have to be hushed.

I used to think that there was no way to accomplish everything.  Now I see that “everything” means something different than it once did.

I am not worthy of the gifts of my life.  I am starkly aware of that lately.  I believe that is the next step in my life, to let not only activity fall away, but parts of myself that are frankly unworthy of the light I feel called toward.
