"I think these difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way and that so many things that one goes around worrying about are of no importance whatsoever."
- Isak Dinesen
This is quoted in Creative Journal Writing, one of the books I'm reading. I don't know the source, nor have I read Dinesen, but this jabs close to home. All these "many things" that I agonize over getting rid of, vacillate on the decision to eliminate, or hang regrets on their fate - they are of no importance whatsoever.
It's just stuff.
