The Trap Of Thinking

Almost everything: all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure. These things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose.

Joe, our local weather person, posts daily quotes with his forecast for the week. This one popped up yesterday and stuck with me.
As the wind bends our big trees and we set up to play a game of Clue [Col. Mustard in the parlor with the candlestick]

I'm thinking about all the external expectations I... 

cling to for dear life? 

out of pride, 
fear of embarrassment, 
fear of failure.
Just for today:
May the wind blow them all away
