Moody Blues . Bigger than Life . You are going to eat ALL of that? . Laurie Pace

Wow, found this one in the OLD files from 2006. Moody Blues. It was huge. Probably 3 x 4 ft in size. Pile that paint high... pile that paint even higher.

I recall thinking that same thought about the hamburger Terry ate last week. We were basically Forks over Knives and somehow he has weaseled more meat into this house as of late. I have lentils today...will have them tomorrow too.  So he is being so helpful last week cooking while I was painting in between his runs up and down the stairs putting in wood flooring. He had bought two pounds of hamburger. ???  There are only two of us and I do not eat hamburger meat.  So he made himself this awesome looking burgers and sauteed mushrooms on the top. Mushrooms I would have eaten.  He bought himself some ciata bread to use as a bun and he was grinning up a storm when he piled that burger on the bun with pickles, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo and ... cheese? Nope he told me he put that INSIDE the hamburger. 

Somethings are bigger than life. Somethings we have in life are challenges (like this hamburger). What are you piling on in your life that you can actually live without?  Alyson Stanfield, an art coach, helped me accept the things I cannot change and actually change the things I can change. 

We do not have to 'eat' the whole hamburger. We do not have to 'do it all'.  We do not have to pile our lives full of things that bring us more harm than good.  Be selective. Think about the things you need to let go of. There is time in life to do all you need to do. Do not pile it on.
