Day 180: Inventory

We just rolled back into town after taking a day trip down to see my in-laws. It’s another late night entry, and I’m tired…. so tonight’s posting will have to be brief.

I’m coming up on the half-way mark on this year, believe it or not. That means it’s probably a good idea to take a moment to review the past six months to see where I’ve been, and where I am going. Not tonight, mind you: that’s way too big a job for this hour.

But as prelude to that review, I started to think about end of year inventory-taking–maybe because I work for a state agency with a fiscal year that ends tomorrow. So I thought it might be good to at least begin thinking about my own inventory: what is it I am still holding onto? And is it an asset or a liability?

I’m sure I can’t answer that question tonight either, at least not completely. It was in my mind–in some form at least–several times throughout the day. And for this reason:

I kept noticing that, regardless of my intentions, I kept letting myself become irritated and impatient over what were really insignificant things.  What was that all about?

I’m sure I could come up with at least a half dozen plausible excuses for my behavior, but regardless of the rationalization, I can’t think of a single good reason why I would want to sour up the moment.

So no answers tonight, but definitely an item to add to the “liability” column. Yes, it is time to shed some unnecessary inventory….
