Downsizing and what is important

As the next chapter of my life unfolds, I am preparing to move to Orlando, Florida. This is my home state, and i will be about 2 1/2 hours away from family. I will also have a fantastic job teaching at University of Central Florida.

As I sort through what to take, I am faced with the question of what is important. The kitchen stuff is on the chopping block as I don’t cook much any more. But there are more difficult questions. As I go through my belongings, I get to examine my life past, present, and future and assign priorities. It is a healthy exercise. Too bad most people rarely undertake it.

In the future, I need to think about my priorities more. I need to decided what supports my higher criteria and what doesn’t. Things and pursuits that support my higher criteria get done, and those that do not go to the bottom of the list.
