Learning Detachment

    My very favorite lesson these days in detachment.  I can suffer by my own fault, for being attached to people’s opinions of me, their judgment, actions and words.
    I have come to a sharp realization that all this world will be consumed, with nothing left.  The only thing worth attaching oneself to is God and His mercy and His truth.
    I picture the consumption of the world, and attaching myself to God in whom my safety resides.
    In practical terms, getting older comes with a bit of clout.  A bit of gravitas.  Somehow it is easier to blow people off and not worry about everyone thinking you’re perfect!  I’m working like mad to be the person God wants me to be.  That’s enough for me.
