Expired Currency

There will come a morning when you wake up and realize that the thing that you carried as currency — your pride, resentment, bitterness — no longer has any purchasing power.

These old coins — chips that have fallen off your shoulder — have become like so much clutter in the home of your mind.

Clutter — both tangible clutter and emotional clutter (and it’s hard to separate the two, anyway) — acts as an emotional and spiritual black hole, sapping your energy… a black hole from the a collapsed star that once burned too bright.  Clutter is what prevents you from making progress, from improving things and moving forward.

Once you de-clutter, once you get deal with the old stuff that’s taking up your space, your time and your attention, you will be amazed how good you will feel.

Hyper-inflated emotions eventually lose their value.

The golden rule is the gold standard.

  1. well said.

    in statistical speak, best way to understand reality is to look at the evidence stripped of all our “prior”s (gotta love that word! 🙂

    although i think you meant ur post as an emotional release thingie.. it also applies at a rational level: what we think we know clouds what we think we see.

    • ..and to extend this parallel you’ve drawn between emotional “currency” and prior sets of data that reflect certain assumptions: It’s possible that a person realizes their favorite data benchmark or statistical model has lost its relevance. The world moves on.
