Renting out space in our heads

How much space do each of have to rent out in our heads? Think about all of the slights and bad things that have been done and said to you. When were you ignored? Unappreciated? Unrecognized for some very hard work? How many times have each of us muttered "You're welcome" under our breath or in our minds to someone who has ignored our simple, or even costly, kindness? How long a list would each of us have?

Every example on that list is rented space - space rented out in our own personal heads! - that is crowding out some pretty great stuff that would like to use that space for my benefit.

I have to evict that stuff, clear it out, and make room for things that are going to help me and keep me going, not get me frustrated by running scripts of they said, so next time, I'll say . . . A fair question: How many of those conversations never came up again? How many of those situations, however frustrating, were one-time-only incidents that we can relive anytime we want, complete with the feelings, but never change? Another fair question: Why would we want to?

There's a pretty good list of stuff that we can think about, and have it occupy the space that is available after we've evicted all of the trash:

". . . whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy - meditate on these things." (Philippians 4:8)

I'm not kidding myself. I know every day will be a challenge to keep my head full of good stuff; everybody else fights it, too. What if we decided not to rent out any space in it at all? What if we gave permanent leases to all of the things that were just listed, prime space for prime thoughts?

Unclogged, uncongested, free minds. No more trying to go forward by trying to steer by what we can see in the rear view mirror. Free to live in the present and becoming free to live even more free in the future. Free - no space for rent!

That's a head that I could live with.
