As I deleted away, I revisited so many different people, places and situations that at the time seemed über important, and have now faded. Oh the drama! And I started to feel like I've come a long way, baby. All these things that I lost so much sleep over now merely brought an amused smile to my face. Is this a sign of maturity? Or is it just that the dramas have shifted to new people, places and situations? Perhaps a little of both, but there were definitely recurring themes throughout the email years...my not-so-stellar personality traits shining through. Who needs therapy when you can clean out your email?? And what at first appeared to be an odious, time-consuming task shifted into a way to enlighten up. I'm pretty pleased with my super light inbox, not to mention gaining perspective and getting rid of baggage with the touch of a key.
Not sure if this adds weight to my enlightening up, but I also got my hair cut today. Went from long and lackluster to short and sleek. Maybe no added significance, but it doesn't hurt to feel like you look good.
How do you enlighten up?
