. warning . . . a popup offers a free e-book . I think her 10 things are quite a good list. . I'd qualify #10 a bit. Some things are worth attachment--and healthy thereby--e.g. God--and some things aren't. . Certainly a LOT of personal misery is achieved, accentuated, magnified by each of these items. They are worthy a review. . And, I think teaching one's children about such principles is very worthwhile. . I think that in this era, such foci have become an epidemic problem. And a lot of it is awash across our Nation and culture as a Tsunami. i.e. much of it is unconscious--an addictive habit that is perpetuated endlessly and in virtually every context and relationship--very destructively. . It can take 30-90 days to break the habit. But it is well worth it. It could even be lifesaving--particularly with the frequency of suicide in our era. . If one really wanted to get better in these areas, one could print a spreadsheet grid listing each of the items and columns for days of the week or even merely weeks of the month--though days might be more effective. Check every day or use hash marks to count the number of times a day you engaged in the dysfunctional item. Work to have a blank week. Then work to have a blank month, etc. .. Cheers.
