From Chicken Soup for the Soul Daily Inspirations for Women

September 26

If I were lucky in this lifetime, I would learn the art of letting go.

I would start with the bathroom scale. Next would be my watch. Perfection, next big hit. Let the housework pile up and invite lots of friends over.

Next, get rid of that worry dance I do. The health of my husband, safety of my children, not enough money, being alone, tax collectors, termites.

I would sit on the beach with my friends and eat junky hot dogs. I would take long walks with my husband.

Sometimes I would sit quietly on my porch and listen to the birds for hours. I would surround myself with people who love nature, laughter and dessert.

I would spend my time living large and doing nothing.

I would sit back and enjoy the journey.
