Down the Drain

Most resources in your life naturally replenish. Unless you’re doing something terribly wrong, you will regain energy, creativity, even happiness. They will build up over time – unless they’re draining faster than the natural process is creating them.

Likewise, bad things build up, too. Those are the things you want to drain, but often we don’t have a good way to let the anger, the sadness, or the problems wash away.

Consider what you’re deliberately retaining. Have you stopped up the drain when it comes to outrage? And have you completely opened it when it comes to creativity?

These are all flows you can control. Most of these things enter and exit your life at paces you set in the first place. Take a moment to adjust the knobs.
