Reverb15 Day 19: max power
It finally dawned on me this year that I rarely turn things up full bawl.
Take my household appliances, for example. The MAX setting on my iron makes me nervous. I’ve sweltered through many a heatwave to discover that I had our evaporative cooling turned up only three quarters of the way.
Take a look in my pantry or bathroom and you'll see that I rarely finish something unless I have a considerable amount of it in reserve (which is why I often buy two or three of everything).
I wonder what this is all about. I mean, would it really be that bad to run out of something? I live a very comfortable First World life: it's not like I'd have trouble getting more of anything.
But something about pushing things to the limit gives me pause. Maybe because I worry it appears greedy or pushy or thoughtless. Or out-of-control.
Anyway, today I am wondering what would happen if I allowed a little more out-of-control-ness in my life.
So I invite you to consider: where could you (like me) consider turning it up a few notches in the new year?
