Day 353: Reconcile

OK, it’ an early morning entry–another case of preponing to make the rest of my day a little easier.

I have a different kind of “reconcile” in mind here–the kind that accountants and budget officers do at the end of the year. At least I think that’s what accountants and budget officers do with their books….

Anyway: after today, we have just twelve more days in this year–and that means I have just twelve more blog entries.

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I’ve been up to this year: what I’ve gained out of this attempt at daily reflection on a more simple, deliberate way of living. But also: what I’ve gained by a commitment to a daily practice of writing down those reflections, and in a semi-public format as well.

So today, as I make that long drive down to my mother-in-law’s house, I think I’m going to do a little mental bookkeeping of credits and deficits, profits and losses. Blah–I can’t keep up that finance metaphor much longer (you know me and finances!)

I don’t think I will be able to calculate a bottom line, but I think it’s safe to say: while I got rid of lots of stuff this year, I have gained far more than I gave away.
