This world isn't our home (as the hymn says). All the stuff in our lives outside of relationships, is just stuff. A lot of it is good stuff, but it is still just stuff. We get stressed when we attach too much importance to our things, when we grasp it all tightly trying to control.
Live today. Don't worry about tomorrow. Don't dwell on the past. Live. Love. See needs in others and meet them when you can. Be a friend. Listen. Help. Share.
Charles Dickens wrote in The Christmas Carol," Beware of two things, greed and ignorance."
Greed is what destroys in this world: the lust for more power, the lust for more money, the lust for pleasure. And Ignorance allows it to happen.
Prepare yourself to be amazed in 2011. It will be a great year.
