    True. Catching and keeping, you hands become to full and you can’t let more in. Catching and throwing means there’s a continual flow.

      Yes, I agree. Thank you for commenting.

    Got that right. Some things aren’t meant to be kept.

    Oh how true those words are. Hoping to “throw out” a few things this year myself & move on.

    Very insightful Spark this week. No, we should never be just “catchers” in life. Real happiness comes when we can throw some happiness to another person. But, there are quite a few unhappy circumstances from 2017 I’d like to throw back!

      I believe many feel the same way you do. 2017 was quite a year! I’m glad it’s gone.

    Yes agreed, like something you should throw things back to lighten your burden when you’re feeling overwhelmed. Always juggling is exhausting right?

    • 01/11/2018 at 8:29 am

      Yes, it is. A heavy burden wears us down. BTW, I love your blog! I have a 16-year-old Himalayan female cat. She is quite the diva.
