How often is it that you have a direct link from a previous post when you weren’t posting a series? Well for me, that is just about never. But today is my lucky day.
From my last post about 11 inspirational words, I talked about my failure to really be inspired to DISCARD for the month of March.
Lo and behold, I learned something interesting from a Joan Chittister newsletter. I learned that the term April Fool’s referred to people who would not accept the new standardized system of defining the beginning of the year. You see, April 1st was originally the first day of the year – not January 1st. Those who resisted standardizing calendar time and discarding April 1st as the beginning of the new year, were called April Fool’s.
Don’t we often resist giving up or discarding those things which, if we lost them, wouldn’t make an iota of difference? What are those things you’re holding onto that you cannot DISCARD?
