Lie down and listen to the crabgrass grow, the faucet leak, and learn to leave them so.
—  Marya Mannes

Sometimes we are driven by a need to get everything done.  We have an inner sense of what we should be, and we work toward meeting that expectation.  But we may strive beyond those goals because of what we believe our friends, our coworkers, and even the advertising media expect of us.

Only we decide which expectations to satisfy.  But first, we must be sure that the things we strive for are really our needs and goals.  If an alphabetized spice rack or an organized workbench gives us no satisfaction, why should we alphabetize or organize?  If an imperfect lawn doesn’t bother us, we can let go of our concern and let the crabgrass grow.

Today, I will hold on only to my goals and expectations.  I will let go of those which give me no joy.
