There’s a list i keep that contains all the things i need to be happy. This list may exist only in my mind, but i take it very seriously. Some would say I am rather rigid about my requirements. I can’t understand why i can’t cover each and every desire that exists on that list, and without being able to do so, i fear i will never be completely content – something will always be missing. But the real problem is the list itself. By specifically defining what i need, I am not allowing a higher power to fulfill me – and there are certain blessings that i haven’t even imagined that would really bring me joy. Time to burn the list.
