I’ve had the blessing of a couple of quiet days here at the office. That quietude will continue through the holiday season as part of the natural rhythm of the business cycle. I like to use that time to think about things. One of the things I was thinking about yesterday and today is that in 2011 I need to focus on learning how to let go of the disappointments of life, whether they’re small or big. I need to learn to just let go of the things I cannot change. I need to learn to let go of past wounds that seem to ride with me. I need to let go of the inner critic and the inner censor. I need, simply, to learn to let go.
