A New Definition / a Powerful New Tool

A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can let alone.
Henry David Thoreau

I like the saying: "Happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have." Thoreau's quote is similar but profoundly insightful. Wow . . . this is really something wonderful to save for later pondering. Surely those sleepless early mornings when the world presses in on me could benefit from this thought. I think I'll start making a List of Intriguing Thoughts like this one to ponder during those times. This list could also combat my wallowing temptations. Hurrah! For me these struggles are addictive and damaging so much like pornography. My
List of Intriguing Thoughts could really be a great way to combat these tendencies. Also, contrary to other methods for attacking weaknesses, this method has none of the side affects of an annoying song running through my head . . .
