Reverb 10; 11 Things

Prompt: 11 Things. What are 11 things your life doesn't need in 2011? How
will you go about eliminating them? How will getting ride of these 11 things
change your life?
1. Worry
2. Extra Weight
3. Debt
4. The crap in my basement
5. Extra paper that multiplies what I'm not looking.  It's worse than fruit flies!
6. Doubt
7. Mistrust
8. Rocks in the garden
9. Processed Food
10. Procrastination
11. Cat & dog hairballs that float around and then hide from the vacuum.  They also multiply faster than fruit flies.

To eliminate each one I will have to consciously remove it.  As much as I wish that they would just magically disappear, they won't.  Not all of them are easy; they are all going to take some work to remove them.  Some of them are easier than others, like removing rocks from the garden.  I can guarantee that my back will be hurting when I'm done but it will be worth it.  Others, such as worry, doubt and mistrust are going to be harder to remove.  They creep in and take hold before I'm aware they are there.

If I can successfully remove these 11 things my life will be freer with less weighing me down.  It's amazing how intangible things can bring you down.  Their roots wrap around you and dip deeper and deeper into who you are.  Removing them would allow more good things in.  Only time will tell if I will be successful!


  1. We have paper that multiplies, too. It's insane. And processed food, that's a smart one. Good luck with your list!
