Welcome to a brand new and improved Taking Out the Trash with crazy stories, new insight and a whole lotta laughs.
As I am wrapping up my sequel, I realized lots of time has gone by. Lots of tremendous things have been happening and I have been crazy busy. My job, family, health, love life and overall abundance has piled up sky high. So glad the pile up is NOT trash! Granted, my trash is always going to be there. It's what I choose to do with it that makes a huge difference.
Merriam-Webster is my favorite source of definitions for the powerful words in the English language. Look up any word on Merriam-Webster's site and you will see the very first thing that is listed is the "Simple Definition". They publish the simple definition of trash as "things that are no longer useful or wanted and that have been thrown away" or "something that is very low quality." You can't get much more simple than that.
Our trash comprises a multitude of useless, low quality crap in our lives. Trash should not always be about romance. It's just that our mental trash allows us to feel inadequate, fat, poor, not pretty enough, not smart enough, and the list goes on and on. Ironically, our crushes, partners, spouses and ex's are usually the ones who make us feel this way. So it's really easy to blog about them. What are we going to do about it? Perhaps get rid of it? YES!
So here we are, still talking about trash because trash will never go away! Did your house ever stop gathering trash? No, you take it out every single Thursday night, or whenever. It never ends. But do you stop taking your trash out now and find yourself sleeping in the middle of a disgusting hoarded dump by next year, I think not. Same applies with our non-tangible trash. It needs to be taken out as well!
I want to start up my new blog with simple quotes I have collected over the past few months. I hope you can see the theme in these wonderful quotes. Next time, let's talk trash!!
The following quotes are from http://www.marcandangel.com/2012/06/08/60-quotes-change-the-way-you-think/
-Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
-If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so. Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay.
-It's better to be alone than to be in bad company.
-Giving up doesn't always mean you are weak, sometimes it means you are strong enough and smart enough to let go and move on.
-When you stop chasing the wrong things you give the right things a chance to catch you.
-When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it's probably time to change the people around you.
-There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.
-You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading your last one.
Things turn out best for people who make the best out of the way things turn out.
-If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.
